By Philip T. Singbah, LINA Bong County Correspondent

GBARNGA, July 22 (LINA)-The Kpor-ekporyah Development Association (KDA) has donated twenty-four cartons of textbooks to two schools in Zota District, Bong County.

KDA is a non-governmental organization comprising of Zota citizens based in the United States.

The books were recently presented to the Lutheran Mission and Gorpudolo Boi Schools in Belefana.

According to a member of the group,  Livingstone Gbellai, the books were recently brought to Liberia from the United States to assist  the schools in building the skills of school going kids in the district.

Gbellai explained that members of KDA in the United States generated the needed funding to purchase and ship the consignment of books to Liberia to assist the school system.

He said despite the challenges facing the education sector, members of KDA were grateful to the Government of Liberia for its ongoing efforts to transform the country’s education system.

Gbellai praised school administrators in Zota District and parents for their support to the school system and urged parents to attach more seriousness to their children’s education by assisting teachers in preparing the kids.

He said teachers were making numerous strides with some of them not on government payroll, adding that they will be further encouraged if parents increased the necessary financial and moral support.

Gbellai assured that the group will continue to buttress government’s efforts in improving basic social services in Zota District.

Receiving the donation, the administrations of the two schools expressed appreciation to the organization and promised to use the books for the intended purpose.

They encouraged the organization to continue the gesture for the growth and development of the district.

The consignment included English, Mathematics, Science and Geography books.
