President Weah Donates to 'Just a Girl' Vocational Training School

President George Weah. 

President  George Manneh Weah has donated  30 sewing machines, and baking ovens among other materials to Just a Girl Initiatives' Vocational Training School in Duazon, lower Margibi County.

The President's donation was in fulfillment of a commitment made to the group during the nationwide tour,  recently in Margibi County.

The items donated include  30 sewing machines, baking ovens, bags of flour, cooking oil, and several other items to help strengthen the institution's vocational and economic empowerment program.

It may be recalled, on April 20, 2021, President George Weah, as part of his nationwide tour, visited District # 1 Margibi County, at the Rock Church, where he met with residents of the district. 

During the visit, the district petitioned the President, highlighting several needs of the district including a  police station, elevating the Duazon public school to a full high school, rebuilding of the Duazon Market that got demolished by fire, and  among other things. 

But the President, in his response to all of the requests, threw them back to the county legislators (Representatives and Senators), stating that they are the direct representatives of the district and county and that they are the ones who legislate the budget, as such they should look into those requests.

But following a passionate appeal to the President and First Lady Clar Weah by the founder, Liberian female Journalist Evelyn Kpadeh Seagbeh, on behalf of the 'Just A Girl Initiatives,' the President agreed to assist and stressed that he was happy and willing to contribute in order to empower lives.  

Just a Girl Initiatives is a non-for-profit organization founded by Liberian female Journalist Evelyn Kpadeh Seagbeh & Co-founded by Mr. Lawrence P. Seagbeh to provide empowerment opportunities for girls and young women to reduce their vulnerability.
