Carter Center Trains 50 Women In Access To Information
By Chris Nyenapee, LINA Grand Gedeh County Correspondent

ZWEDRU, June 8 (LINA) – Carter Center in collaboration with the Gedeh Information Network has trained over 50 women from 20 civil society and women groups from Tchien District and the capital Zwedru in assessing information under the Freedom of Information (FOI) program.

The training was aimed at increasing their interest in access to information in order to raise the country’s living standards.

During the training, several working groups identified setbacks such as the lack of basic information as some of the difficulties they encounter in accessing information.

They indicated that the introduction and constant awareness of the FOI Act by Carter Center and other civil society organizations have allayed their fears in seeking information from relevant authorities.

The participants also vowed to bring under control issues such as poverty, corruption, illiteracy and ill-treatment, among others, through the collection and spreading of adequate relevant information to move the country forward.

The Carter Center FOI Women Specialist, Cerue Konah Garlo, told the Liberia News Agency that the exercise is designed as a nationwide public awareness
campaign to enable women become more focused and active in seeking information for the benefit of society.
