As part of contribution to minimize the unemployment rate in the country, the chief executive officer of the National Center for Entrepreneurship Training, Titus Korfeh has introduced entrepreneurship training for several students in Salala, Margibi County.

The National Center for Entrepreneurship is a newly established entity operating in about eight schools in Margibi County. Making the statement on during an interview Tuesday September 5, 2017 in Salala, Krofeh said the goal of this organization is widen the minds of Liberians particularly students and business people in creating job opportunities since the level of unemployment in the country continues to raise concerns which many suggest is responsible for the level of poverty in the country.
According to him, this organization was established early this year and is expected to be publicized by December of this year. He mentioned that the entity will make sure that Liberians create interest in the area of job creation which would be of great help in balancing the country’s economy.
The group chief executive officer added that entrepreneurship is a major component and should be taught in all primary schools and universities in the country.
He used the occasion to encouraged students benefiting from the training to be innovative and stay focus. “You need to be innovative and stay focus, our problem is that we are thinking or dreaming business; all we look for is job, so, be an entrepreneur and be your own boss,” he cautioned.
He noted that NCFET is currently training over 1000 persons in eight high schools in Margibi County, where young Liberians are trained to be innovative and immediately create jobs for themselves after graduation instead of waiting to be employed by government or other entities.
Korfeh further indicated that the organization is expected to extend its entrepreneurship club to high schools in other parts of the country before the 2018.
He fears that if students are not innovative to create their own jobs, unemployment would be one of the major problems in the country. Titus expressed disappointed in politicians contesting for the October 10 elections for not including entrepreneurship in to their platforms. “If these politicians want to see a better Liberia during their reign, entrepreneurship has to be a major part of their platforms.
Meanwhile, the organization chief executive officer also used the occasion to call on government, especially the Ministry of Education to place entrepreneurship in the curriculum as a course to be taught in all primary schools and universities across the country.
