TUBMANBURG, October 5 (LINA) – The Klay Development Association (KDA) based in the United States of America has donated over 14, 000 textbooks to the Gertrude Yancy High School in Klay Town, Klay District, Bomi County.
Making the disclosure to the Liberia News Agency (LINA) in the district recently, the acting Principal of the school, George Gbelly, said the organization made the donation following the rehabilitation of a modern library at the school by the United Nations Children’s Education Fund (UNICEF).
Principal Gbelly told LINA that the Library which has the capacity to accommodate 35 students at a time, will afford them the opportunity to do research and to do their assignments on their own.
Gbelly who did not give the actual cost of the project, indicated that UNICEF also provided tables and chairs to be used in the Library.
According to Gbelly, the Government through the Ministry of Education (MOE) has also provided textbooks for Grades Four and Nine, and has pledged to provide text books for the senior high division aimed at building their capacity.
