A library that is being constructed by the administration of the Sass Town Public School on Bomi Highway will be furnished after completion, according to Mrs. Nancy Bropleh, the executive director of the Liberia Women & Child Teenage Mothers Assistance Program (LWCTNAP).
Speaking last Tuesday at the school’s campus after making a donation of office materials, Mrs. Bropleh commended the administration for the initiative and said her organization will provide, among other things, books for the library.
The Sass Town Public School has a student population of 878 including 400 females, 15 teachers and two volunteers.
Principal Lorpu K. Paygar commended Mrs. Bropleh for the office supplies and her commitment to furnish the library when it is completed in June.
“We are grateful that your organization came to identify with us,” principal Paygar said.
“And we ask God to bless your organization.” Items donated included chairs, filing cabinets, toys, boxes of paper and pens, files and three cabinets.
At the Diaspora Community School in VOA, Brewerville, outside Monrovia, a similar donation was received by principal Abraham Sesay. The school, Sesay said, is supported by the community and runs from 1st to the 10th grade.
At the Apostolic Christian Foundation, also in VOA, principal Engelbert Mackjohn received similar items for the school and commended LWCTNAP for the contribution. The Isaac G. Tondo Public School of Jah Tondo Town, Brewerville received the fourth donation of office supplies.
The total monetary value of the donated items to the four schools amounted to US$8,000, according to Mrs. Bropleh, who said the donations are her organization’s contribution to assist the schools to enable them to provide better education for young people, “who are the country’s future.”
She noted that the LWCTNAP focuses on women, children and teenage mothers and provides means for their sustenance.
The organization is completing an adult literacy center in Brewerville to cater to teenage mothers and other women by providing them with vocational skills to make them productive, she said.
Mrs. Bopleh appealed to wealthy Liberians and other not-for-profit organizations to extend support to women, children and teenage mothers to help them to be independent and productive in the country.
