Singbah, Youth Leader, Salala District, Bong County, said Liberian youth often face “extreme hardships to access the right opportunities to become marketable and productive.”“We hope that this project will help improve lives of young people by making them productive citizens,” he said.A multidimensional joint effort of FAO, ILO, WFP, and the GoL, the peace-building fund project is a 24-month activity, which primary purpose is sustaining the peace through reduction in youth vulnerability and achieve their positive engagement in improved rice, vegetable, poultry, and fish farming.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
