The Management of the National Port Authority (NPA) as part of its Social Corporate Responsibility through the Managing Director, Bill Twehway, has donated assorted books to at least five primary schools within the Port’s proximity of Bushrod Island near Monrovia.
The aged old Boswen Junior High School, Greater Vision, New ERA , ‘Meal a Day Academy’ as well as Trinity United Methodist among others are schools that benefited from the Port Authority’s largess in books donation.
According to a release, the books are meant for instructional and research purposes as the Management of the Port endeavors to support the Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) government’s vision to transform Liberia’s “messy” education system to ‘best’.
Also, realizing the vital role public sector plays in creating a level playing field in driving innovations and building an environment to enhance quality education and entrepreneurship to foster economic growth, NPA’s long standing Corporate Social investment strategy is based on its vision to help the world run better and improving people’s lives. To this end, Managing Director Bill Twehway who is also an educator believes the donation of the books when utilized by pupils of the benefiting schools will be a great deal of help to their education sojourn and prepare them for better opportunities in the future.
