– Social Worker Tells Graduates
A veteran Bong County Social worker has admonished young people, who have passed through vocational institutions, to make maximum use of the skills acquired.
Elisha Bloe – a trainer at the Development Education Network Liberia or DEN-L, exerted that many young people who have acquired vocational education were unable to make practical such skills acquired, adding that vocational skills were very essential to the growth and development of Liberia.
The Bong County social worker made the statement Tuesday when the Young Men Christian Association Gbarnga Branch graduated one hundred persons who successfully completed nine months of training in various disciplines, including auto mechanics, electronics, catering, as well
as tailoring, among others.
The training was under the YMCA Securing Healthy Life and Sustainable Livelihood for Vulnerable Young People, sponsored by the Government of the United Kingdom, through Y-Care International.
The DEN-L trainer told the graduates not to put their tool cases on the market; instead, they must use such to make money for themselves and their communities.
The Project Manager – Michael Freeman, told our Bong County Correspondent that the project currently covers five of the fifteen counties of Liberia, adding that it was targeting ten thousand young people in the counties.-Edited by George Barpeen
