Over 200 Virginia youths get temporary employment

Over 200 youths of the Township of Virginia, outside Monrovia, have been given a temporary job opportunity through the launch of a cleanup campaign and roadside brushing project. This was disclosed by the Commissioner of the Township of Virginia, Tye Weah, recently in an interview with the Liberia News Agency(LINA).

The cleanup campaign and roadside brushing project, according to Weah, are part of efforts to promote the Government’s Pro-Poor Agenda for Prosperity and Development (PAPD). Weah believes that when the youth of the country are capacitated through job creation and training programs they will be in the position to contribute towards the development agenda of the Township.

Weah wants youths of the Township to focus on their jobs and also show respect for each other as well as constituted authority so as to promote unity and collaboration between the youth and the authorities.

He said besides the provision of the job opportunity, his office has reached a decision to cultivate more than 20 acres of farm land in the Township in order to boost the government agriculture program in the area. He said it is unfortunate and regrettable that the citizens in the Township have to travel to Duala market to buy pepper and other crops that can be grown in the area.

According to him, under the agriculture project more youth will benefit from additional employment opportunities.
