Miss Liberia/ USA 2013 and United Nations 2016/2017 Mollyn Giselle Jarbo has described education as the passport to a successful future for any nation. She made the assertion on Monday, 19th December during a visit to the Lady Erma Children Foundation Precious Gift International School situated in Camp Johnson Road, Monrovia to acquaint herself with problems confronting pupils and instructional staff of the institution.
The Liberian International Model said with unity and commitment, the education system of the country will rise again. She said her visitation to the school was to give back to Liberians what she acquired as a Liberian female resident in the United States of America.
Miss Jarbo, who is also the first Liberian woman to go to the United Nations Pageant held in July 2016 in Kingston, Jamaica said she intends to assist the school with educational materials and food items for the wellbeing of the students, adding that in the absence of food, they would not learn anything.
The Liberian Model also disclosed that she would seek to build the capacities of primary school students, who she described as future presidents, medical doctors and ministers.
During the visit, she read a primary school reading book entitled “Togar’s First Day” written by M. Woryonwon Roberts, to students of the 6th grade class aimed at motivating them to improving their skill in comprehensive reading.
Other students from various classes performed drawing fist, bucket, while student Daninlle Arimi of nursey B recited all chapters of the Holy Bible, and her colleagues named African Countries and their respective capital cities with ease.
An interactive forum was also held at which time the students asked Miss Jarbo to provide educational materials, assist in the construction of an annex of the school, vehicle and computers, among others.
In response, the Principal of the school Mr. William D. A. Kaikor expressed gratitude to the Liberian International model for her visitation, which he said, will go a long way in cementing the cordial ties between the institution and her office. Mr. Kaikor said the visit by Miss Jarbo to the school is the first since the institution was established several decades ago. It may be recalled that the Miss United Nations on July 9, 2016 came third runner up at the United Nations Pageant and was crowned Miss United Nations Earth.
