Mr. J. Alphonso F. Kordor, the lead facilitator, led others in training and drills in a variety of vocational skills, including catering, soap-making, pastry, tailoring, and dialogue and peace-building efforts.

Finance and Development Planning Minister Samuel D. Tweah is slated to speak at the graduation ceremony on Friday, May 20 at the Konola Academy Mission school in Margibi County.

Traditional Leaders, women’s groups, students, and members of the Liberia Crusaders for Peace are among the other notable attendees.

The Etta Tucker Foundation Aid, according to Madam Baysah, has continued to deliver skills and life-changing opportunities to women, men, young boys and girls, and the less fortunate in Margibi County and beyond since its inception.
