Over 250 students from the various schools in the Township of West Point have received school materials from the Keeping Them Honest, in collaboration with Helping impact Liberia.
The materials were distributed during a one day- back to school jamboree, held under the theme ‘’When you Educate a child, you Educate a Nation’’ on Monday.
Keeping Them Honest is a non-governmental organization that focuses on charitable initiatives geared towards providing support to school-going kids during the re-opening of the academic school year 2015/2016.
Speaking at the program, the President of the Bong County Technical College, Dr. John S. Flomo, Sr., emphasized the need for Liberian children to be provided the education they need because they are the future leaders of the country.
Dr. Flomo indicated that Liberia can be like America if and only if they are given the kind of quality education they need.
Dr. Flomo also encouraged students to make wise use of the education given them. He also admonished them to make good use of the materials given by the organization so as to encourage them do more.
The CEO of the organization, Ms. Paulita C. C. Wie, said the donation was the organization’s way of identifying with the various academic institutions in Liberia, as well as lending support to the Ministry of Education and Government of Liberia. Among the materials distributed during the jamboree are copy books, pens, pencils and book bags.
