ActionAid Provides Logistics for FLY Secretariats
Grand Gedeh, Gbarpolu, River Gee Counties Benefit
The international NGO, ActionAid-Liberia, has provided logistics for secretariats of the Federation of Liberian Youth (FLY). The secretariats, which are FLY’s sub-offices in the counties, coordinate all youth activities and furnish the Federation’s head office on Camp Johnson Road, with pieces of information.
The INGO’s intervention, which had been earlier provisions for the establishment of secretariats in the same counties, also included the provision of three motorbikes, three printers, three generators and assorted stationery and other office supplies.
Presenting the items to the coordinators of Grand Gedeh and Gbarpolu Counties’ secretariats, Federation president Joseph Jimmy Sankaituah said that ActionAid-Liberia had stood with them in every thing that his institution had endeavored doing.
He gave each of the coordinators, Ms. Jacquelyn Caryahway (Grand Gedeh) and James M. Daniels (Gbarpolu) US$200 as a startup for their secretariats until the beginning of next month, at which time he said the Federation head office will provide ‘additional financial support.’
Sankaituah disclosed that the INGO’s entire support to his institution sums up to US$21,620; adding: “They have always expressed their willingness to partner with us and for this we want to commend them and other partners, including the United Nations Development Program (UNP), Search for Common Ground/Talking Drum Studio (SCG/TDS) and the Christian Children Fund (CCF).”
Ms. Caryahway, for her part, is the only female coordinator along with her male counterparts.
Speaking with the Daily Observer, Coordinators Caryahway and Daniels in separate statements thanked ActionAid and other partners for their support in helping them to coordinate the affairs of young people in their respective localities.
Ms. Caryahway specifically said that she enjoys working with her male colleagues and urged other females to get involve into activities that promote young people’s agenda.
