Gender Official Wants Women Capacity Upped

ZWEDRU CITY, April 4 (LINA) - Grand Gedeh County Coordinator for the Ministry of Gender and Development (MODG), Mr. Moses Neah, has stressed the need to build the capacity of women in project proposal writing to improve their productive skills.

He said project writing skills will enable women identify their needs, concisely narrate them in a proposal to attract funding from development partners, in order to address the problems facing women in the country.

Speaking in an interview with the Liberia News Agency at his administrative building office in Zwedru Wednesday, the MOGD Coordinator observed that women are slack in cooperative ventures, because of lack of projects to gather them to work as a group.

He said working together in groups, rather than individually, can help to attract support from donors, adding that ventures that will attract support include agriculture, community development, tailoring, hair dressing, soap-making and others that bring group benefit.

On what his office is doing to improve participation and involvement in working together, Mr. Neah asserted, "Women should see themselves as a unit and support each other's initiatives,” Neah said, lamenting that of the four women centers built in the county, three are not functional and have practically collapsed.

In a related development, the president of the Grand Gedeh Rural Women organization, Miss Rita Kai, has handed over the gavel of authority to her vice president, Jesadeh Barzon.

Miss Kai relinquished the presidency of the Rural Women, after taking over as Mayor of Zwedru City, the provincial capital of Grand Gedeh County.
