Taking volunteerism to another level, United Nations Volunteer Programme through UNDP, identifies with three youth organizations by donating assorted assets.
2 laptops, 1 desk top screen and a multi- purpose printer were turned over to Volunteers Hub Liberia, the Pan Afrikan Volunteers’ Network and the Messengers of Peace, for use within their respective institutions.
Cllr. Kanio Bai Gbala, UNV Country Coordinator of UNDP expressed appreciation to the youth groups for promoting volunteerism in Liberia.
Counselor Bai Gbala noted that the assets worth over US$2000dollars, are to help boost the work that they do on a daily basis, which he stressed is worthy of support.
He appealed to them not to look at the cost but the intent that goes with it. “Little is much when God is in it,” said Kanio.
Turning over the items on behalf of UNDP Management, Procurement Specialist Lady Pokolo- Andrewson extolled the efforts and commitment of the youth organizations working to bring to the fold, issues that confront young people of Liberia.
Miss Pokolo- Andrewson said their relentless advocacy will go a long way in helping Liberians work together for the common good of the nation.
The proud recipients highlighted the challenges they face with respect to logistics, noting that the ICT assets will help boost effective delivery of services rendered to the youthful population of the country.
Volunteers Hub Liberia, Messengers of Peace, and the Pan Afrikan Volunteers’ Network expressed appreciation to UNDP through the UN Volunteer Programme for the gesture, stressing that the move is an indication of a stronger partnership that is in the interest of sustaining the peace in Liberia.
