Saah, National Coordinator of the NBE, who spoke at the opening program, said the National Employment Policy is an instrument developed by the Government of Liberia aimed at increasing employment opportunities for Liberians.Liberia, like any other countries in the world, he said, has a huge unemployment record with youthful population accounting for about 60 percent.According to him, the policy is intended to provide employable skills in the labor force so that they may graduate from the informal to the formal sector of the country.Mr. Saah named five priority areas of the policy focus as: public infrastructure work, enhancing human capacity, revitalizing the agricultural sector, upgrading the informal economy and empowering vulnerable groups.If all these priority areas are fully implemented, a total of 250,000  jobs are expected to be created within the next four years, he stated.The NBE National Coordinator of the said that because of the importance the Government attaches to the policy, the MOL anticipates taking it to all counties in Liberia to solicit the views and imputs of stakeholders.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_imgForty children from the Upper Corentyne on Saturday benefited from more than $1 million in school clothing and supplies from a non-governmental organisation.Volunteers distributing the school supplies on SaturdayAbraham’s Tent, situated at Number 74 Villager, Corentyne, on Saturday donated to children of that community school uniforms, books and bags with other school essentials.President of Abraham’s Tent, Shamim Ibrahim, explained that the organisation is trying to reach out to the community.Most of the children are preparing for the 2019 National Grade Six Examinations. A few are in reading classes.Ibrahim comes from a family of 12 siblings who have all pooled their recourses to assist the community. He said the initial idea was to have an open space so that persons can come for whatever their needs may be.According to the organisation’s President, one of the initial concepts was to help women and children who may have social issues affecting them; however, because of the lack of the relevant human resources, there was a shift to providing assistance in the field of education.He said this is also what his parents wanted since they ensured that all of the children received an education although they were poor.“As such, we are trying to give back to the community by identifying those that are underprivileged and those who might be in need with some extra help with their regular curriculum at no cost,” he said, while noting that the organisation has realised that many children do not attend school regularly.“Because the parents themselves may not have had a higher education, they may not realise of getting their children an education and granted that many of them might be in dire financial stains right now, so we want to let them know that they should not be keeping their children home because of that reason; not as long as Abraham’s Tent is in existence.”The Tent has been in existence or the past decade.Ibrahim further explained that what was done is just the tip of the iceberg of what they would like to do to encourage children to attend school regularly.The overall programme also involves parents who should not be thinking of depriving their children of an education because of their circumstances.Noting that it is a known fact that not all will be academically inclined, Ibrahim says future plans include the teaching of a trade to children.“Such as plumbing, basic electrical, carpentry and so on… In addition to that one of the first projects we are going to undertake at the beginning of next year is sustainable chemical free agriculture,” he added.last_img read more

The programme now operates in countries across the globe, including in the United States where the programme is supported by global star and Bad Boy Entertainment founder Sean “Diddy” Combs. In Ireland, a total of 1,500 participants who set up 600 businesses as part of this year’s Foróige NFTE entrepreneurship programme, generating a collective turnover of €250,000. The programme runs from September to May every year.Research carried out by NFTE among 3,600 young people who participated in the programme found that 70% of all participants have found a job, either as an employee or an entrepreneur.

first_imgExpress FC have retained only seven players from last season. (PHOTO/COURTESY)StarTimes Uganda Premier LeagueBul FC vs Express FCFUFA Technical Center, NjeruFriday, 30-08-2019 @4:30pmNJERU – Express FC have undergone a major shake-up ahead of the 2019/20 StarTimes Uganda Premier League.With only 7 players from last season’s squad currently still with the club, the new-look Red Eagles will start their campaign away to Bul FC on Friday evening at the FUFA Technical Center in Njeru.It is a fixture Express would not have wanted to start with but will be optimistic of getting something from it.Mathias Muwanga, Tony Kyamera, Hamis Batega, Lawrence Kigonya, Sadiq Sekyembe, Ivan Ocholit and Disan Galiwango are the seven that survived the shake-up at Wankulukuku and will be expected to guide Express to victory on Friday.Still under the guidance of George Ssemwogerere, the Red Eagles made several acquisitions in the offseason, most notably securing the services of Daniel Shabena, Idrisa Kaye and Shafick Avemah.Shabena was signed from Bul and will be the center of attraction as he makes an immediate return to his former employers.”I was a BUL FC player but now I have a new family and that’s Express FC, noted the midfielder ahead of Friday’s game.“Everything I do now is for Express FC, inside me I have a feeling things will be positive. I’m so proud to be here.”As Shabena looks up to a potential debut, the Red Eagles will be without new-signing Kaye as he is still nursing an injury.

first_imgThe magical corncrake has been given a chance at survival in Donegal and other counties after Ireland received €4.3 million from the EU to fund a four-year conservation project for the bird.Minister for Culture Josepha Madigan welcomed the announcement of €4.3 million in EU Life funding, awarded to her Department’s National Parks and Wildlife Service, for a project focused on improving the conservation status of the corncrake in Ireland.Once synonymous with the Irish countryside, the population of the corncrake has declined by 85% since the 1970s, with a 92% decrease in range. This means that the species is now effectively confined to Donegal and parts of Connacht, including offshore islands; supporting the corncrake in these remaining areas is critical to its survival.Announcing the award of funding today Madigan said: “The decline in corncrake numbers is of significant conservation concern in Ireland. Conserving species in their natural habitats requires a strategic approach to succeed.”Madigan said that the funding “will allow my Department, working in concert with stakeholders across government and the communities in question, to put concrete and sustainable measures in place to help secure the future of this species, which has a special place in Irish culture”.The €5.9m budget ‘LIFE Atlantic Crex’ project is due to commence in January 2020 and will run for five years. The project will see conservation work funded in project sites in Counties Donegal, Mayo and Galway. Working in partnership with landowners, the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine, Údarás na Gaeltachta, Galway-Mayo Institute of Technology and Fota Wildlife Park, the project aims to deliver a 20% increase on the 2018 population of the corncrake recorded in Ireland by 2024.“During 2019 we have introduced a number of significant measures to protect and promote Ireland’s biodiversity,” Madigan added.”The corncrake is a species listed for special protection under Annex 1 of the EU Birds Directive.Grant of €4.3M aims to save corncrake and increase numbers was last modified: December 19th, 2019 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Corncrakedonegalgrantlast_img read more
