Educated Citizens Sustain National Growth  -Henning

Richard D. Baysah, LINA Margibi County Correspondent

KAKATA, April 22 (LINA) - The head of the Swedish Educational Fund for Liberia says the growth and development of any nation starts with the education of its citizens.

Mr. Peter Henning said there can be no full development for a nation in the absence of the provision of sound, quality education.

He made the statement in Kakata Wednesday when he visited several learning institutions in Margibi County on a needs assessment tour being supported by the Swedish Educational Fund for Liberia.

Henning said total development starts with the educational development of the children who will take on future national leadership of the country.

He indicated that though he was a Swedish national, born in LAMCO Yekepa, Nimba County, he was “very delighted” to identify with Liberia, adding, “Liberia is where I was born and as such will not forget to give back to Liberians”.

He also disclosed that though the core function of his organization was basically in the educational sector, it had to divert to help the Liberian Government and people in the fight against the Ebola Virus.

He said now that the Ebola virus disease has been contained, his organization is reverting to its core function in providing scholarships to needed students to help them achieve their educational goals.

In separate remarks, the Principals of schools under the sponsorship of the Swedish Educational Fund thanked Mr. Henning for his continuous support to their schools.
