A locally-based non-governmental organization (NGO) based in Tubmanburg, Bomi County, will soon graduate several women trained in various skills over the period of a year.
Making the disclosure recently, the project officer of the Defense for Children in Liberia (DCL), Madam Helena Wonba said the women had been trained since March last year in various skills and would be graduating this month.
Madam Wonba said the organization has been training women, especially young women, in Tubmanburg, Bomi County in soap making and tailoring.
According to her, the skills they learned would enable the women to sustain themselves and their families by making meaningful contributions to their respective communities.
She detailed plans to extend the training program to other areas in Bomi County.
Madam Wonba spoke in a recent interview with the Liberia News Agency (LINA) in Tubmanburg.
She said, despite a recent brake in at the offices of the DCL where thieves made away with office equipment estimated at US$700, the pending graduation exercise would be executed as planned.
She explained the burglars made away with stabilizers, printers and reams of sheets among other items; creating a serious setback to the operations of the organization.
She concluded by revealing that the police in the county were informed and have instituted a preliminary investigation to apprehend the culprits.
