Vice President Jewel Howard-Taylor has emphasized the need for more investment in human capital in Liberia.

Speaking during the pre-launch of the Liberian Youth Orchestra at the Alexandria A. Andrews Academy in Gbarnga, Bong County over the weekend, Vice President Taylor noted that investing in human resource development will add value to Liberians and foster development in the country. 

Vice President Taylor said when Liberians are educated, they will adequately use the country’s natural resources which will then become secondary resources to develop the nation.

She recommitted herself to educating young people in Liberia and expressed the hope that others who have the capacity will follow suit.

“As a woman, I believe in educating young people, especially girls. We all need to help develop our children’s future because it is with them the future lies,” she said.

“I have been doing this from the day I was not working in government and up to now and forever I will continue to meaningfully contribute to the education of the young people, not only in Bong but across Liberia,” she added.

The Liberian Vice President further committed herself to construct a dormitory for beneficiaries of the Jewel Starfish Foundation Scholarship in Bong County before the start of the 2022/2023 school year.

Also speaking, the Chief Executive Officer of Change Agent Network, Eric Wowoh renewed his institution’s commitment to breaking the circle of poverty through education.

Wowoh said his dream is to explore every means to make available the necessary opportunities to build a concrete foundation for kids in Liberia.

He said he is hopeful that Liberia can depend on the upcoming generation, but only if leaders can start to help them prepare for a better future to come.https://thenewdawnliberia.com/vp-taylor-calls-for-civic-voter-education-ahead-of-2023/–Edited by Winston W. Parley
