Mr. Philip Woods, a Liberian in the United States, precisely in Philadelphia is striving to bring total dignity to his kinsmen who are using the motorcycle transport system for survival in Liberia, West Africa.
His organization, the Liberia Motorcycle Safety Program (Lib-MSP) is said to be working out lots of opportunities with some U.S. based organizations who are in this sector to bring back to Liberia such opportunities being enjoyed by motorcyclists in that part of the world.
Speaking to our staff in the United States, Mr. Woods said he has the passion to encourage Liberians in the sector by scouting out lots of benefits for them, stressing, “We need to bring dignity in this sector, especially Liberians who have passion in riding motorcycle as a means of their survival,” he told our staff.
He emphasized on coming to Liberia to help train Liberian motorcyclists whose desire is to graduate from the poverty line and make a better living through their current trade as commercial motorcyclists.
He is currently lobbying in the United States for this purpose; training opportunities for Liberian motorcycles. Detail of this report will be in our subsequent posting.
