NAYMOTE Provides Grants To Ebola Survivors In Bong
By Philip T. Singbah, LINA Bong County Correspondent

GBARNGA, August 7 (LINA) - The National Youth Movement for Transparent Elections (NAYMOTE), Partners for Democratic Development has completed the disbursement of a grant of L$ 25,000 each, to eight Ebola survivors in four districts in Bong County.

The districts are Jorquelleh, Suakoko, Yellequelleh and Salala. The program is an economic empowerment initiative undertaken by the National Civil Society Ebola Task Force with funding from the Open Society Initiative for West Africa (OSIWA).

Making the disclosure to the Liberia News Agency in Gbarnga Thursday, NAYMOTE Executive Director Eddie Jarwolo said the project seeks to
reintegrate and empower Ebola survivors in their communities.

Jarwolo told LINA that the first phase of the project was to train the survivors in establishing and managing business in a sustainable way, following which an initial amount of L$15,300 was given each of them to begin their businesses.

He explained that the institution made the last quarter disbursement of L$ 9,700 to each survivor on Wednesday.

Jarwolo indicated that following this second phase, the third and final phases of the project will be monitoring, evaluation and documentations of survivors’ success stories as well as challenges.

Our correspondent visited the survivors at their business centers ahead of the last phase of the project and observed that all eight survivors have already started showcasing explicit passion for their small businesses.

The survivors thanked NAYMOTE and partners for the grant, and promised to manage their businesses in a way that will ensure that they become strong entrepreneurs in the future.
