Grand Kru County Development Association in Liberia (GKCDAL) over the weekend installed code of officers into office.
The Association was established in November 2011, aimed at contributing to the development of Grand Kru County as a peaceful, secure, free and prosperous society to live, raise families’ study, work, invest and mobilize financial materials and human resources internally and externally.
The new President elect, Mr. Cisco Alphonso Toe, disclosed that the Grand Kru Development Association in Liberia will assist, oppose and redefine cultural heritage, promote, unite, respect, and encourage citizens’ participation in the development of the county.
According to Mr. Toe, the Association will also engage in charity work, especially education, sporting and other activities that will help develop the county because Grand Kru County has been marginalized in terms of development.
“We will motivate citizens, friends of Grand Kru County residing in Liberia and other parts of the World to plan, participate and support social economy of the county through volunteerism,” Mr. Toe averred.
Mr. Toe Further stated that the Grand Kru County Development Association in Liberia will sensitize the people of the county through advocacies and use of national resources of the county.
Meanwhile, Mr. Toe says the Association will unanimously serve as environmental work for the protection of the county and will support and facilitate public and private initiatives, ignite, nurture and sustain development in the county.
Mr. Toe said the Association will extend its hand to Grand Kru Citizens who are in and out of Liberia and also to travel to organizations in Monrovia and its environs to come under the umbrella of the Association for brainstorming and develop Grand Kru County.
According to Mr. Toe, Grand Kru County is underdeveloped and Senators and Representatives, who are representing the county in the National Legislature, have failed to shoulder its social responsibility of developing the county.
