By S. Kannay Ziamo, LINA Nimba County Correspondent

GANTA, November 10 (LINA) - Eighty-one young Liberians who completed technical, vocational and education training (TVET) lessons at the Bangladesh-Liberia Friendship Center (BLFC) have received certificates of achievement.

The graduates completed courses in Computer Skills, Basic Nursing and First Aid, Generator Operation, Repair and Maintenance, and Tailoring.

The training lasted for six weeks with focus on theory and practical studies.

Presenting the graduates to education stakeholders in Ganta recently, BLFC Center Coordinator Pastor John Malia said the students were prepared by highly-trained Liberian instructors and are therefore fit for the job market.

He said graduates from the center are already employed with various organizations across the country, stressing that their outputs and performances are remarkable.

Meanwhile, Pastor Malia is calling on organizations and individuals in Liberia to create employment opportunities for graduates of local vocational institutions, saying, “This will serve as motivation for young Liberians to pursue vocational education that will turn them into productive citizens.”

Established in 2007 by the Bangladeshi Contingent of the U.N. Mission in Liberia (UNMIL) serving in Ganta, the center has imparted useful skills into over 2,000 young Liberians.

After managing the center for eight years, the BLFC was in December 2015 turned over to the Government of Liberia as UN peacekeepers departed the country.
