The People of Substance (PS), a local youth group established in 2011, has distributed several educational materials to the Maranatha Apostolic School System (MASS), located on 5th Street in Sinkor, Monrovia.
The organization made the donation through Ezekiel Jimlack and Yancy S. Dixon, member and spokesperson, respectively.
Items the PS distributed included one carton of text books, three packs of pencils, erasers, and 50 drawing pads to enhance the learning skills of the beneficiaries.
Mr. Jimlack told the school’s administrator that the organization will remain engaged in giving back to the community, particularly in education, because they love learning.
He then appealed to education authorities in the country to do more, especially by providing and improving safe learning environments for students and teachers.
“Education is the bedrock of any nation, so we need to prioritize the learning of all school-going children not only in the community, but across the country,” Jimlack said.
Yancy S. Dixon, PS spokesperson, called on other youth organizations to contribute to the improvement of the education sector.
Dixon said the group is not only focusing its attention on the education sector, but is also eyeing the health delivery system, where they can provide awareness on the prevention of the outbreak of diseases.
MASS Principal, James Forkpah, expressed gratitude to the group for contributing to the learning of Liberian children by helping them to realize their academic dreams.
He said the group’s assistance will help to transform the lives of Liberian children.
