Zekepa, Nimba, Liberia: – In the quest to achieve the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030, a critical focus lies on rural community development. Today, we delve into the heart of Yarwin Mehnsonnoh Statutory District, specifically within Nimba County Electoral District Nine, Liberia, shedding light on efforts to uplift these communities.

One of those at the forefront of this initiative is McArthur Waltee Kehyee, a native of Gbaa, a community nestled amidst creeks, devoid of basic amenities such as schools, clinics, and even roads. Despite growing up in Zoweinta, Bong County, where his parents resettled, Kehyee has remained deeply connected to the plight of his homeland.

Kehyee has actively engaged in various community-driven projects, demonstrating a commitment to improving the lives of his fellow citizens. His contributions range from donating essential items like laptop computer, phone and tripod to Radio Voice of Yarwin Mehnsonnoh 99.1FM, managed by The One Nimba House Media Inc (Nimba D-9 TV), to providing spare parts for equipment use for developmental activities initiated by the Late Prof Rep. Johnson N. Gwaikolo.

Furthermore, Kehyee’s support extends to empowering local initiatives, such as the Women Empowerment Forum Liberia (WEFL), by financing the acquisition of a cassava processing machine for value chain programs. Additionally, he is actively participating in The One Nimba House Media Inc (Nimba D-9 TV) Community Mental Health Program, “Help Minimize Epilepsy in Liberia,” aiming to raise awareness and provide treatment for at least 300 citizens grappling with epilepsy in the region.

Together, Kehyee and his counterparts are striving to alleviate the burden of epilepsy and other challenges faced by rural communities, exemplifying the spirit of collective action towards sustainable rural development.

In a world where urbanization often dominates discourse, the efforts in Yarwin Mehnsonnoh District serve as a poignant reminder of the transformative potential inherent in investing in rural communities. As we look beyond the horizon, it is through such grassroots initiatives that the vision of a brighter, more inclusive future for all can be realized.
