World Bank Building School in Tindowah Town

By David Seedee, LINA Bomi County Correspondent

TUBMANBURG, March 31 (LINA) - The Commissioner of Gbarma District in Gbarpolu County, Mr. Siafa Konneh, says an elementary school is being constructed in Tindowah Town in the district with World Bank funding.

Speaking in an interview with the Liberia News Agency in Klay District, Bomi County during the Commissioners' Council of the Western Region meeting, Commissioner Konneh said the Administrative Building in the district has also been renovated.

He did not disclose the cost of the project, but said funding came from the County and the Social Developments Funds of Gbarpolu County.

Meanwhile, Commissioner Konneh has disclosed that youths of the district are benefiting from youth training programs, including the government-funded Liberia Youth Empowerment Program (LYEP).

He said the program has empowered many young people in the district.

At the same time, Commissioner Konneh has alarmed that the district is faced with two major issues, including the slow pace at which drugs are supplied the district health center, as well as the bad condition of roads.

The Commissioner said the road from Gbarma to Weasua is in very bad shape, and stressed the need for its upgrading before the start of the rainy season.

Commissioner Konneh noted that if the Gbarma to Weasua road and farm-to-market roads are rehabilitated, citizens will be able to transport their agricultural commodities to the various markets to earn income.

He said the only way the citizens can improve their livelihood is when they have access to good roads, transportation and health services
