NGO Donates US$104k Agro Equipment To Farmers

By Robert Dixon

MONROVIA, August 20 (LINA) - The Action to Reduce Child Labor (ARCH) based in Kakata, Margibi County has turned over several
agro-processing machines and equipment to the Livelihood Model Farm School in Zannah Town, Todee District, Montserrado County.

Valued at US$104,856, the donation includes cassava press machine, cassava grater machine, vegetable dryer and treadle pump, among
others.

Presenting the items to the farmers, ARCH Education Specialist Lanus Weh said the entity is operating a four-year project to reduce child
labor in three districts in Montserrado, Margibi and Nimba counties.

Weh said the project is also providing agricultural services to 3,700 households and education services to 10,000 children between ages 5-17
who are vulnerable to child labor or are at risk of the practice.

He said the goal of the ARCH project is to reduce child labor through education, social protection, youth employment, policy and institutional capacity building, awareness, research and evaluation, as well as transparency and accountability.

ARCH, a non-governmental organization established in Liberia more than five years ago, is under the auspices of WINROCK International funded
by the United States Department of Labor.
