UNICCO National Project Director Hits the Ground Running and Tours Nimba

“Welcome to Domahpa George and we the citizens of this community have since welcomed UNICCO firstly for selecting our village for this project. To prove that, we have always turned out to provide support to the contractors as it relates to food, water supplies, manpower, etc. What is also very important is, our youths have a job to do and they are provided monthly stipends by the contractors, so we are happy. Your coming to us directly will boost the already existing relationship. We also want to say thanks to Gbarwee and the UNICCO Team in that group who have been very proactive’’ said George Domah, Paramount Chief of Bain-Garr.

In another related development, the Elders, Youths, Women, and by-passers at the welcome and town hall meeting appreciated UNICCO and pledged their overwhelming support for the ongoing project.

Domahpa Development Chair equally flagged the issue about school in Domahpa. “We have over 200 kids and there is no school here as you can see. Sadly the only school around is four (4) kilometers away in Neigbein almost in Gompa City. It is very risky to have kids ranging from 5-12yrs to be on this road up and down where we have speeding vehicles plying this highway. Because of this many of the kids here are not in school. Their education status is sad with absolutely no hope at the moment. This is one of the reasons we can’t wait for the UNICCO Women Empowerment Project to be completed. The school was here before but got destroyed as you can see from the broken structure. We are calling on UNICCO, sons, and daughters of Nimba, and Liberia to help us rebuild this school. Finally, we want to appreciate His Excellency President George M. Weah who built 11 homes here for some of our citizens.’’ Domahpa Development Chairman told Nimba D-9 TV.

Responding to the people of Domahpa, George Flomo, extended greetings from UNICCO National President Samuel Wogbeh Gee, Board of Directors Chair Nixon Zor, Her Majesty UNICCO Queen and the entire past and present leaderships of UNICCO home and abroad. “I am deeply inspired by your level of warmed welcome provided us. This shows that you are all fully ready for development and we are with you. UNICCO is one and we have to treat it as our own by supporting and fully protecting all the materials etc.

The second phase of the project will soon start and that same energy including love for county and country shown then, should even be doubled because we are proud of all you continue to do. As it relates to the broken school, it is sad indeed but will appreciate you as citizens firstly taking the lead by even cleaning the spot of the school and getting the bricks, etc fix, with that some citizens can get involve. To our Liberia Country Rep and team, all we can say is thank you, and is time we all roll our sleeves to serve our communities. There are no monthly salaries, but it is worth being a part of community services.’’ Mr. Flomo told Nimba D-9 TV in Domahpa
