-Receives US$1.2million
Authority of Grand Gedeh County has given the administration of Grand Gedeh County Community College (GGCCC) US$1.2million for the construction of the college new school building.

Speaking to this paper in the county, the Vice President for Administration, Charles Breeze confirmed the amount as announced by the county's leadership. Breeze said the college is faced with the challenge of seating and as such, the intervention of the county is timely.

"The number of students who come to the school more and the capacity is less. We are grateful to the county for the funding. Currently we have 91 students in a class," he said.

If every thing goes according to plan, the multipurpose building will be dedicated in December 2017. The Liberian Government is making available US$500,000 annually to each community college across the country.

"We have financial challenge. We need a million dollar to run the institution. According to Breeze, the physical structure of school is small, but we are working on this plan for the future.

The US$1.2million provided by the county is now available as per government standards. For his part, the Site Supervisor of Musons Group incorporated, a consultant working with the contractors for the project assured the county and the school administration that the project will be concluded in December of this year. John Effiong revealed that the project is being implemented by IG Danex Liberia limited and FESU incorporated targeting 50-60 students in a class.

"The project is not a pre-financed project. We have received 30% for the first phase, 40% for the second after the assessment by the consulting company," he said.
