Citizens Build Self-help library, laboratory

By D. Ignatius Roberts, LINA Grand Cape Mount County Correspondent

ROBERTSPORT, March 23 (LINA) - Residents of the Township of Madina in Garwula District, Grand Cape Mount County, have constructed a library and laboratory building estimated at over US$15,000  on self-help basis.

Town Chief Folley Sherman told the Liberia News Agency (LINA) that the township decided to construct the library and a laboratory, due to the importance the people attach to the education of their children.

Chief Sherman also explained that they decided to undertake the project, to enable students and teachers carry out research.

He also disclosed that citizens of the town are compensating over 10 teachers who are rendering free services to the school, to encourage them remain in the classroom.

He said the people of the Township were driven by the belief that it was time that Liberians begin to formulate strategies that will buttress government’s national development program.

Mr. Sherman said it was regrettable that the Township, which has a population of more than 3,000 inhabitants, does not have safe drinking water and modern latrine facilities.

He said due to the lack of safe drinking water and latrine facilities in this modern era, the citizens are still drinking from nearby creeks and using the bushes to defecate.

Meanwhile, Town Chief Sherman is appealing to the government and international partners to help them construct hand pumps and public latrines, to ensure the health and wellbeing of the people.
