Salala To Benefit From 5 SDF Projects
By Philip T. Singbah, LINA Bong County Correspondent

GBARNGA, October 21 (LINA) - Five projects under the Bong County Social Development Fund (SDF) are to shortly commence in Salala District, Bong County.

The projects include renovation of the Martha Tubman Public School estimated at US$ 15,000; construction of the Fehla Community Hall for US$8,000; expansion of the Salala Clinic at US$97,689; a US$68,457 Donfah Elementary School construction and a Community Hall construction worth US$65,000.

The total cost of the projects is put a little over US$254,146.

The SDF is money generated from companies operating in a county as corporate social responsibility contributions and in keeping with Mineral Development Agreement entered into with the government.

Implementation of the projects is a decision reached at the County Development Council Sitting in Gbarnga in April this year. The sitting approves projects and allotments annually.

Bong County Development Superintendent Anthony Sheriff told the Liberia News Agency (LINA) in Gbarnga Tuesday that the projects will be implemented by three construction companies.

Sheriff said the county administration has had discussions with residents of Salala District, especially communities where the projects are being implemented, to assist the contractors for the success of the projects.

He warned against purchasing materials intended for the projects from contractors as doing so will affect their timely completion.

In a related development, the Liberia Agency for Community Empowerment (LACE) has broken ground for the reconstruction of the Teasly Mission in Teasly Community, Salala District estimated at US$68,000.

Speaking at the ceremony recently, LACE Executive Director Julius Sele admonished inhabitants to take ownership of the project, noting “it is important for community members to assist with the project and avoid over-charging contractors for works they are supposed to do.”

He said money for the project is provided by the Government through the Legislative allotment in the national budget, and lauded Senator Jewel Taylor for selecting the mission for upgrade.
