first_imgAware Int’l School funded road construction underway. The Aware International School System, an Indian operated institution, has embarked on the rehabilitation of the Kissi Camp and the Joe Bar roads, which have a length of about 5 kilometers that connect the corridor of the GSA Community road in Paynesville. The project, according to its implementers, will cost US$10,000.The school said it is in support of the Government of Liberia’s (GoL) Pro-Poor Agenda for Prosperity and Development (PAPD); a vision that has since placed the construction of feeder roads across the country atop its list of priorities.Kissi Camp is a community in the GSA Road and located near the residence of House Speaker Bhofal Chambers, while the Joe Bar road leads to the Joe Bar Market and the Zone-Five Police Sub-Station.Aware founder, Gopinadhan Pillai, who toured the construction site on Sunday, February 24, said he feels proud to see the fulfillment of one of the school’s social responsibilities to communities.Though the project is in its early stage, Pillai expressed optimism that the road will be completed before the start of this year’s rainy season, to give community dwellers access to the freshly rehabilitated road.“We are here today to inspect; we know that there is work going on in order to ensure that the roads are accessible to all residents, though there are lots of work to be done,” he said.He said it was a dream and aspiration of his school to give back to the community, adding: “We are happy that in 2019 the rainy season will not give community dwellers a tough time; at the completion of the project, children will go to school without their uniforms being dirty anymore.”The school will on Friday, March 1, conduct a Science and Arts Exhibition where participating students will display their individual talent in Science and Arts.Activities of the exhibition will include a presentation of working models of invention, on global warming and its preventive measures, application of mathematical theories for daily use as well as science and arts play for kids.Others will include common plants and their health benefits, assessment of intentions and their working models, and a general tour of scientific and artistic displays.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
