By S. Kannay Ziamo, Ganta, Nimba County LINA Correspondent

GANTA, May 30 (LINA) - The Salvation Army Vocational and Technical Training Institute (TSATTI) has graduated seventy-eight young Liberians in road maintenance following a five-month intensive training.

The training was provided by the Salvation Army in partnership with German NGO, GIZ.

Speaking at the graduation program at the weekend in Ganta, GIZ Project Advisor F. Aberdeen Gargli said the project is intended to equip young Liberians with skills they need to make them marketable.

Gargli said since its establishment in 2004 by the Salvation Army Liberia Command, the TSATTI has trained school dropouts to add value to their lives through self- employment skills and also provided training for high school and college graduates who would like to acquire technical and professional skills to compete in the labor market.

Meanwhile, Gargli has disclosed that the Salvation Army Vocational and Technical Institute is currently piloting a road maintenance technicians training for 160 trainees selected from Bong, Nimba Grand Basaa and Rivercess counties.

He said the project is part of the organization's 'Capacity Development' in the transport sector program.

Delivering the keynote address at the graduation ceremony, Gompa City Mayor Benjamin Dokpah encouraged the graduates and Liberians in general to take advantage of technical and vocational education as the country needs professionals in these areas.

Speaking on the topic: “The Importance Of Road Maintenance In Liberia,” Mayor Dokpah challenged the graduates to make every necessary use of the skills they have acquired.

Meanwhile, the Mayor has cautioned the graduates to give their best whenever the chance is given them to perform any task, even in the absence of finance.
