Montserrado County's District #9 Representative, Munah Pelham, has disclosed that the government has given her permit to operate a vocational institution for her people.
Rep. Pelham said she has obtained an official permit from the Ministry of Education to operate the Liberia Vocational Institute in her district to help mode the minds of young people and prepare them for the job market.
Liberia Vocational Institute (LVI) started its first cycle on May 1, 2012 with 140 students being trained in six different vocational disciplines, including cosmetology, baking, drafting, graphic arts, plumbing and basic computer literacy, amongst others. She noted that the institute is a free of charge for young people, who desire to learn, but lack the financial means.
Speaking at program to officially cut the ribbons to the institute in Lakpazee Sinkor, recently, the young female lawmaker said she believes in the power of education, and she is prepared to transform the lives of young people in her constituency.
She noted that the construction of the district office is part of her hundred day promises, vowing to always be accessible to the people. Also speaking at the program, Maryland County lawmaker Bhofal Chambers said district #9 is blessed to have a committed lawmaker like Munah Pelham.
Dr. Chambers urged residents of the district to support Rep. Pelham for her great works and thanked his colleagues for constructing a district office, noting “Only a good lawmaker can advocate for his or her people.”
