Senator Cooper Nudges ULSU On Volunteerism
By Calvin Brooks, LINA

MONROVIA, September 18 (LINA) - Margibi County Senator Oscar A. Cooper has challenged the University of Liberia Student Union (ULSU) leadership to initiate voluntary teaching, sanitation and hygiene programs to enlighten Liberians in villages and towns in the leeward counties.

According to Senator Cooper, it is unfortunate for university students to sit idly while Peace Corps Volunteers come from the United States to teach Liberians in remote villages and towns how to read and write and observe sanitation and hygiene practices.

The Margibi County Senator proffered the challenge Friday at an ULSU scholarship fund drive in the auditorium of the university on Capitol Hill in Monrovia.

He noted that if Liberia should be developed, then Liberians should learn to take initiatives like helping the less fortunate in society that will transform the living condition of the people, emphasizing that Liberians should learn to do things for themselves.

He stressed that investing in young people’s education will go a long way in enhancing the socio-economic development of the country.

Senator Cooper emphasized that Liberia cannot continue to look up to foreign partners for everything to develop its citizens, noting that university students should begin to engage in volunteerism to help educate and transform the lives of less fortunate Liberians.
