The Kennedy Lungar Youth Exchange and study Alumni Association has presented eight-garbage cans to the Gbarnga City Corporation. Presenting the items on behalf of the group, its President Nathanial Copper said the donation was his organization’s way of identifying with the GCC in a bid to keep the city clean.
Mr. Cooper said Gbarnga, which plays host to many guests, needed to maintain its city status if it is to be counted among fast-growing cities in Liberia. He told journalists that the items were provided to the Gbarnga City Corporation, through LEARN LIBERIA after series of appeal by his organization.
Receiving the items, the Mayor of Gbarnga, Esther Worbey lauded the group for its timely intervention, calling on inhabitants of Gbarnga to take advantage of the garbage cans to be placed at various locations. She added that cleaning Gbarnga was everyone’s business.
The program officer of I-EARN-LIBERIA, Jacob Bandiyo thanked the officials and members of the GCC for the friendship that has existed between the City of Gbarnga and his group, pledging his organization’s willingness in working with the GCC through the Kennedy Lungar Youth Exchange and Study Alumni in Gbarnga.
