Modern Soil Laboratory Lunched at LCCC
In an effort to make the Lofa County Community College a Center of Excellence, USAID-FED has dedicated a modern Science laboratory to the people of LCCC and Lofa County. One of the main purpose of constructing such an expensive facility is to provide soil testing opportunity to farmers in the entire Lofa County. The soil test can determine the fertility and pH levels of their farms even before planting their crops. This will help to increase their crop yield and thereby providing surplus food for the Nation. Key Participants/Stakeholders who attended the program include Hon. George Tengbeh, Hon. George Donor, Dr. James N. Kollie Sr.and Mr. Boima Bafaie. Representatives from various government ministries and agencies also attended the program.
Dr. James N. Kollie in his speech thanked USAID-FED for all the help given to Lofa County Community College especially the Modern Soil Laboratory and Internet facilities. A brief remark followed by cutting of ribbon was done by Hon. George S. Dunor, Superintendent Lofa County. USAID-FED Deputy Chief of Party, Boima Bafaie encouraged LCCC to put in place mechanism that will help maintain the facility.
