A nongovernmental organization, Kids Educational Engagement Project (KEEP) over the weekend, donated 720 copybooks to a local nongovernmental organization Orphan Concern to be distributed among orphans under the watchful eyes of Orphan- Concern.

The Founder and Chief Executive Officer of KEEP Brenda Brewer Moore said her organization received over 14,000 cartons of copybooks from international partners ‘Tools for Learning’ to be given to local partners for adequate distribution among needed students.

According to her, many other local non-profit making organizations have received the donations.Receiving the items, the Executive Director of Orphan Concern, Amos Sawboh, said the donation is timely, and it came at the time when schools are about to reopen for 2nd semester.

“We’re almost at the verge of completing the first payment of school fees for 102 Ebola orphans in six counties for academic year 2015/2016 is the arrival of these copybooks, it is a boost, we will use some for the second semester.

 Mr. Sawboh noted that the remaining copybooks will be distributed the beginning of the next academy year among the students they are responsible for.

He, however, commended KEEP CEO, Brenda Brewer Moore for making Orphan-Concern as one of their partners.

He called on other meaningful organizations, individuals or family members to do the same as to empower the less fortunate children in Liberia educationally.

He disclosed that orphans from Nimba, Bassa, Bomi, Margibi and Montserrado counties will benefit from their distribution for now and during the 2016/2017 academy year, other counties will be added to benefit from their scholarships and school feeding program.
