The president of the Yarder Boys Association of Liberia, Prince Kollie, has disclosed that the government has pledged more support for the organization’s upcoming scholarship fund drive as part of its responsibility in investing and rebuilding human capacity.

Kollie, in collaboration with other international partners, will on Sunday December 22, 2013, host an honoring program at the Bernard Beach on the Robertsfield Highway outside Monrovia.  

Addressing journalists at the organization’s Lynch Street office, Kollie said the organization will honor government officials and other civil society organizations for their many contributions to the development of Liberia.

In another development, the organization will host a rally at the program to help support the organization’s scholarship program that is aimed at changing the lives of low income people for the betterment of society.

The president said the organization will focus on vocational education as part of its contributions to the rebuilding of the country’s human capacity development, adding that Liberia must invest in the youths.

“Liberia needs the contributions of the youths, and we must always stand to give to our country as Liberians. This is why we intend to address and call on the national government for their support to the young people of Liberia,” he said.

Kollie said the organization has contributed to the people of Liberia and the government through dialogue and fostering the common goals of the Liberian youth.

He used the occasion to call on the young people of Liberia to join the Yarder Boys Association in honoring the most deserved government officials and other civil society organizations in the country.
