The Brumskine Youth Movement or BYM has donated 89, 000 Liberian dollars to the Paynesville Seventh Day Adventist High School and the Muslim Congress High School in central Monrovia, respectively. The donation is in fulfillment of promises to both institutions.
According to the Movement, the gesture is aimed at restoring life to the schools and part of efforts in buttressing the education sector, noting that it was predicated upon the numerous challenges facing the education system.
Making the donation recently in Monrovia, the National Chairman of the BYM Mr. Oniemus James said, they embarked on the initiative to send a clear message to students across the country that they are willing to work with them for the improvement of the education sector as well as in fulfilment of vow made to the schools to help improve their Science laboratories.
“As you may be aware, there was a promise made quite recently on the campuses of these institutions that this Movement will provide certain amount to buttress the schools’ efforts in helping to equip science laboratory at the various schools”, said Mr. James.
He pointed out the BYM is a youth body that is regulating the movement of Liberty Party standard bearer Cllr. Charles W. Brumskine in all 15 counties, saying “We got involved with this initiative through a request made by these two schools to help with their school projects, and it is against this backdrop that we thought it wise to intervene because we want our young people to get in science and technology for the betterment of the country.”
Making remarks, the Vice Principal for Instructions at the SDA School, Mr. D’NanaSuah and the Dean of students at Muslim Congress High school Mr. Mohamed V. Kiadi both expressed delight to the BYM for taking up time to donate such amount to their respectively institutions.
The two school authorities stressed that science laboratory was important and at such, they will make sure the amount provided by the BYM will be used for its intended purpose.
