A school for a rural Liberian community

Residents of Zondo, a district in Liberia’s Grand Bassa County, are to soon benefit from a modern elementary school through the Soltiamon Christian School System (SCSS).

During the ground breaking ceremony recently in Zondo Town, SCSS founder and superintendent, Pastor Solomon Juah said being a son of Zondo, and considering that his education commenced in his home town, it is about time that he gives back to the people of Zondo through this project.

Pastor Juah noted that the project will cost a little over US$200,000. and that it is expected to be completed by the middle of this year. It will host over 500 students.

He called on companies operating in the county to help make this initiative a success, adding that prominent sons and daughters of Zondo in and out of Liberia should support the project.

Meanwhile, the management of the Liberian Agricultural Company has committed itself to the project.

Speaking during the ceremony, J. Morris Saah of LAC’s management community liaison office revealed that the General Manager Vijay Marai and his senior management team promised to support Soltiamon Christian School System in her educational drive for students in that part of the county.

Mr. Saah noted that ‘’Education is one of the best ways to give back to the people you work with, but LAC Management will not relent to commit herself to the project as part of her Social Corporate Responsibility.”

Zondo Clan Chief Steven Barlegar said the elders and chiefs were happy to see such an initiative coming back to their clan through Pastor Solomon Juah and his team.

Chief Barlegar pointed out that though they do not have money to sponsor the project, they will make available the necessary manpower for the job.
