Liberia: The Rotary club has graduated 194 women in various disciplines

By helping to develop the potential of Liberian women, the Rotary Club of Liberia has effectively graduated 194 women in four distinct disciplines including soap making, cosmetology, food preparation and garment making.

Some communities that have benefited from this opportunity include Du-Port Road, Clara Town, Old Road, Police Academy and Central Monrovia.

Rotary International is a humanitarian service organization that brings together business leaders and professionals to promote community service, integrity and guidance, goodwill, peace and understanding in the world.

It is apolitical and it is based on various social factors. There are approximately 46,000 member clubs worldwide with 1.4 million people known as Rotarians.

As the program’s keynote speaker, Arthur Wolobah Bomo Fumbah told the graduates that the intention of the Rotary Club is to develop the potential of women to earn money for themselves and for society.

According to him, the women of Liberia have made the nation proud, adding that “the preparation of the graduates clearly indicates that this is the right step they are taking to grow their business in society.”

Fumbah told the women that the institution supported them because they had demonstrated the potential to grow their businesses, adding that there was something they had done well that selected them.

He said Ghana’s economy, which is always held up as an example, was built through the development of human capabilities.
