GOL Gets US$10m Grant For ‘Youth Opportunity Project’

MONROVIA, February 15 (LINA) - The Government of Liberia has received a US$10 million dollar grant from the World Bank to implement the ‘Youth Opportunity Project’.

A Ministry of Agriculture release issued Tuesday said the grant is intended to build the capacity of 50,000 Liberian youths through sustainable economic programs.

The release indicated that it will be done under the vigilant supervision and implementation of the Ministries of Youth & Sports and Gender and Social Protection, and Liberia Agency for Community Empowerment (LACE).

Deputy Agriculture Minister for Research and Extension, Thomas Gbokie, launched the program at the Paynesville City Hall.
The release quoted Gbokie as telling on Liberian youths of numerous opportunities they stand to benefit when young entrepreneurs could blend their careers with agriculture-related vocations.
