Monrovia Breweries, one of Liberia’s leading distilleries, has provided two water tanks and modern latrines for use by dozens of primary students of the Academic Preparation for the Future School System situated in Jacob’s Town, Paynesville City outside Monrovia.
The water towel, which contains two storage tanks with a capacity of 400 gallons, was made possible through an appeal from the management of the school.
Addressing reporters Tuesday, 13 December the Founder and Proprietor of the institution Mr. Charles Richard Brooks, said besides the water towel, Beer Factory also provided four new commodes to improve the lavatory condition of the school.
Brooks disclosed that the intervention came at the right time after the school observed that students were often being treated for constant running stomach and other water-borne diseases.
He commended a former UNPOL police officer, Mr. Felix Walz through whose intervention the materials were provided to the institution.
He also expressed gratitude to Lt/Col. Jimmy Smith of the United States Security Sector for providing 50 bags of cement toward the APF’s dream school project, which will kick-off shortly.
The institution, which started as a study class in 2011 with only three students, now has over 500 pupils enrolled.
Principal Brooks disclosed that the APF is engaged in building the capacity of eight instructional staff thru the Standard Teacher Training Institute located in the compound of the Liberia Christian Community College (LCCC) in Gardnersville Township, suburb of Monrovia. Editing by Jonathan Browne
