MONROVIA, April 13 (LINA) -National Port Authority (NPA) Managing Director Matilda W. Parker has assured the Center for National Orientation and Transformation (CNOT) of her willingness to help in its endeavor to transform the lives of Liberian youths.

 

CNOT was founded by Rev. Luther Tarpeh as a local arm of a non-governmental organization Transformation International Inc. that champions the cause for positive change of the youths of Liberia.

The vision of CNOT, according to the organization, is to see each and every Liberian equipped with the necessary knowledge, attitude and skills to ensure their success in life and enhance the quality of the lives of others.

According to the Liberia News Agency, Madam Parker gave the assurance at the weekend when she served as keynote speaker at a program organized by the CNOT at the William V.S Tubman High School on 12th Street in the Monrovia.

The program was titled “Insight for Successful Living”.

Madam Parker said her decision to help the CNOT is predicated upon its commitment to see young Liberians acquire skills to achieve success in their individual lives and impact the lives of others.

The National Port Authority Managing Director told the gathering that she had not met the founder of the Center until she tuned to a local radio phone-in talk show where Rev. Tarpeh was educating people on how to be successful in life.

She said the radio talk-show moved her to decide to fully support the programs so that the organizers can extend it to other parts of the country.

For his part, CNOT founder Rev. Tarpeh thanked Madam Parker for her promise to help CNOT achieve its dreams and aspirations.

He said the transformation of Liberia, which CNOT is now championing, requires resources, and appealed to all people of goodwill to assist the organization.

He observed that the greatest challenge of rebuilding Liberia is not the construction of infrastructure, but transformation the mindset of Liberians.
