LIBERIA: Dr. H. Conway’s Foundation Commits Support to Education, Initiates Education Grant to River Gee University Students Union
The Harry Conway Foundation has underscored the need for Liberians to recognize the good efforts by the Government of Liberia in the educational sector, as the responsibility still rests for the need to do more.
The Foundation says since its formation in Liberia, it has been considering to buttress the GOL efforts in the areas of education, agriculture and health. According to the Foundation’s Country Director Joseph Jubor, they have begun engaging some actors and beneficiaries of the educational sector in the Country, beginning with the River Gee County University Students Union recently, and has made an initial grant of LR$ 50,000 for educational purposes.
Mr. Jubor says the founder and CEO of the Foundation Amb. Dr. Harry Conway has seen the need to work with the Liberian Government and other partners of education in several ways to achieve a better educational system and output for Liberian students.
The foundation’s CEO, Amb. Dr. Harry Conway is Liberia’s Alternate Permanent Representative to the International Maritime Organization headquarters in London, Great Britain.
Meanwhile, the HCF Country Director has also called on students to strive for quality and sound education at all times, and never be ashamed to seek help from people. He has cautioned Liberian students to take advantage of the tuition free policy of the Weah-CDC led government in building their capacities, something he says, they can use to contribute immensely to having a better Liberia.
Mr. Jubor has also called on the Weah-CDC led administration to enact into law its tuition free policy, and buttress such mechanism by providing stipend for university/college students base on merits, and reintroduce the compulsory education policy, school feeding program for primary, and secondary levels in all public schools across the country.
For his part, the President of the River Gee University Students Union, Brisco Toe thanked the HCF for the donation, and promised to use it for its intended purpose.
