Rep. Snowe to Give Rural Tailors Contract Montserrado District #6 Representative Edwin M. Snowe has assured the first batch of graduates of the Julijuah Vocational Training Center (JVTC) of awarding them a contract for the production of uniforms for two institutions under his sponsorship: the Mary Taryonnoh Broh School in Monrovia and the Weakamah Public School in Bomi County. He made the promise October 30, 2016 when he served as guest speaker at the first graduation ceremony of JVTC’s Tailoring Program. Fifty-six trainees, who completed a six-month intensive tailoring course received certificates of achievement at the occasion, held in Julijuah Town, Tehr District, Bomi County. Rep. Snowe did not state the worth of the contract but one of the Monrovia based school alone has 500 students. Re-echoing their class motto of “It Can Happen”, Snowe praised the graduates for their determination to undergo and complete the training indicating determination means success. He lauded President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf and the Ministry of Youth and Sports (MYS) for establishing the training center in 2015 and called on individuals in government to get involved personally in the development process in whatever way possible. “Government alone cannot do everything, it needs everybody’s intervention to make it happen for the general good of the country,” said Rep. Snowe. “If everyone does the little they can, we will gradually get somewhere and with that we can make it.” He challenged the graduates to put their skill into practice to improve their lives and environment. He thanked the supervisor, Mr. Kamara and instructors of the center for preparing the trainees to become entrepreneurs. Julijuah Vocational Training Center (JVTC) is a founded and funded school by the president of the Republic of Liberia Madam Ellen Johnson Sirleaf but send under the Ministry of Youth and Sports. Meanwhile, MYS Deputy Minister for Technical Vocational Educational Training (TVET) at MYS, Rufus D. Neufville, who led awarding of the certificates, admonished the trainees to remain determined to the level of succeeding in whatever initiative they undertake.
