LIBERIA: Zolowee Public School Gets New Outlook as Renovation Advances
Ongoing renovation works funded by ArcelorMittal Liberia on the Zolowee Public School in Nimba are nearing completion.
The renovation work when completed is will give the new shape, from its previous deplorable condition.
Zolowee Public School renovation is one of several corporate social responsibilities ‘Quick Impact Projects’ launched in late 2021 by ArcelorMittal Liberia.
It comes from the back of an appeal by the school’s administration and local authorities of Zolowee Town and an assessment of the condition of the school by ArcelorMittal Liberia.
After the assessment, the company announced in January 2022, a USD $35,000 allotment for the school’s renovation, as well as supply of new school desks and armchairs, in addition to a consignment of school supplies for students earlier delivered.
Re-roofing and painting works are already completed with floor work currently ongoing.
The principal of the school, Rufus Dahn has expressed delight over the progress of the renovation works.
Dahn explained that before the support of AML for the renovation of the school and supply of furniture, the school lied in a dilapidated state, and was virtually empty with no logistics.
“Before AML came in, I met this place very bad up when I came here as a principal. Now, I can say thank God for ArcelorMittal to come in. Even the toilets have been renovated and everything is becoming fine on this campus, and I am happy.”
Principal Dahn expressed optimism that the renovation works will be completed before the start of the new school year.
