BFF Wants Schools Reopened

first_imgBFF’s Augustine Arkoi: “Liberians have been victims of ‘deliberate politics and policies’ of socioeconomic marginalization…’Better Future Foundation, BFF, has called on President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf to reopen all learning institutions from kindergarten to university levels throughout the country.In a statement issued in Monrovia over the weekend, BFF president, Rev. Augustine Arkoi, criticized the indefinite closure of schools nationwide by the government under the pretext of the fight against Ebola, according to him, while video clubs and other entertainment centers remain fully operational.It added that such approach defeats the intents and purposes of the Liberian government’s declared war against the Ebola outbreak in the country.He pointed out that the current approach by the Government in the war against the spread of the Ebola Virus Disease without a well-defined containment plan, coupled with the abrupt imposition of a State of Emergency and a curfew being enforced by armed military and paramilitary forces are causing more harms than good to the country and its people.BFF, in the statement, signed by its president, Arkoi, also called for reevaluation of the current approach being carried out by the National Ebola Taskforce, describing it as “reactionary” as it has made little or no tangible positive impacts in the fight against Ebola in Liberia. “Government must reevaluate the State of Emergency and the Curfew and establish a clear roadmap in its fight against Ebola, otherwise the situation would create more unanticipated problems for the country,” BFF emphasized.“The Closure of schools as well as placing restriction on school authorities from conducting registration exercises and prohibiting them from engaging in capacity building training for teachers and school administrators by the government is not a Smart Way of combating the Ebola Virus Disease in the country. We, as a country and people, cannot successfully eliminate Ebola Virus Disease in the face of mass illiteracy,” BFF maintained.“Schools should not be closed while video clubs are operational.  Instead learning institutions should be used to create more awareness and education in the minds of students from grade school to colleges and universities relative to the dangers of the Ebola virus and its preventive methods,” BFF furthered.According to BFF, the halting of learning opportunities for students throughout the country is not only counterproductive to the fight against Ebola but also inimical to national growth and development.BFF is a local-based NGO that is dedicated to the rebuilding of post-war Liberia; and promotes socioeconomic, international cultural understanding and cooperation.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_imgAn Irish priest is set to begin a walk of hope for Motor Neurone Disease this Tuesday in Letterkenny.Donegal residents will shortly be turning out to support Fr Tony Coote, who’s walking from Letterkenny to Ballydehob in Cork, in a bid to highlight the plight of Motor Neurone Disease sufferers in Ireland.Fr Tony Coote was diagnosed with MND in March 2018. For a popular Dublin priest with untold energy levels as well as a contagious zest for life, this news came as a bolt of lightning. He found himself part of a vastly under-resourced medical world of lengthy waiting lists and over-burdened medics. Never one to be struck down by adversity, Fr Coote came to the decision to walk the length of Ireland (550km) in order to raise funds and to help highlight the need for further funding in this area.This Tuesday 10th July, Fr Coote will embark on the ‘Walk While You Can’ challenge from Letterkenny to Ballydehob in Cork.Two events are planned this week to give the plucky priest a great Donegal send-off.There will be a Letterkenny pre-departure evening event on Monday 9th July in the Central Bar, Main Street from 8pm. The big send-off and start of the walk is from the Radisson Blu, Letterkenny at 9.30am on Tuesday 10th July and this will be attended by Donegal Manager Michael Murphy, Donegal Rose of Tralee Niamh Duggan, members of the Council as well as other local supporters of note along the route.The Donegal leg of the journey will take him from Ballybofey to Donegal Town and Bundoran before he crosses to Sligo.Locally organized events take place each evening in the route towns – Jacksons in Ballybofey (10th July), Donegal Town (11th July) and Bundoran (12th July). Kick off each day at 9.30am.Fr Coote hopes to finish on August 6th 2018. Everyone is welcome to join him and his team at any stage (route details available online at wwyc.ie)The walk is intended to spread a message of hope, so people who join are asked to hold a symbolic yellow balloon. Funds raised will go to the Irish Motor Neurone Disease Foundation and Research Motor Neurone. The target has been set at €250,000, and they are almost halfway there.Fr Coote said: “Since I was diagnosed I realised the only medication is 24 years old and that the Motor Neurone Disease Association can only provide three nurses for the whole country with just over 400 people living with this illness. Their salaries are paid for by church gate collections.“Rather than just complaining about these facts I want to use my time and my voice to do something about it. To this end we invite you to become part of Walk While You Can, to donate,  walk with us, organise a fundraising event or offer accommodation to around 6 of us doing the whole walk.”To support the ‘Walk While You Can’ fundraiser, visit: wwyc.ie Unstoppable priest to get a mighty Donegal send-off on his walk for MND was last modified: July 9th, 2018 by Rachel McLaughlinShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:fr tony cootemotor neuron diseasewalk while you canlast_img read more
