Teleconference, a new method to converge without facial interaction seems to be the way forward for most organizations in the Diasporas.
While some U.S. based businesses, organizations, or families use the service free of charge owing to proliferation of internet service, teleconference does not seem to be popular in third world countries due to challenging bills; but immigrants in the United States are making the best of it.
In many African communities in particular, teleconference seems to work fine as some organizations employ it to discuss list of items they wish to achieve as a group of people. Teleconferencing is one way that organizations bring stakeholders together from different states without hindrances, and discuss common agendas relating to their purpose of existence.
This is exactly what a Liberian organization formed for the sole purpose of rescuing Liberia’s educational system will be undertaking this Sunday, March 10, 2013. The projected teleconference to enhance the hope of Liberian children and to shape their destiny will bring together many Liberians across the United States.
The teleconference, prearranged by the Nimba County Community College Advocacy Group, NCCC, is expected to hub primarily on the future of Liberian children. NCCC’s Secretary General, Richmond Mohamed Konneh, through an email disclosed that the gauge for the conference is to provide assistance and secure a better prospect for Liberian youths.
The Nimba County Community College Advocacy Group is however calling on goodhearted individuals to join them in their struggle to systematize a better education for the yet-to-be leaders of Liberia. The conference which is open to the public is expected to commence at 16:00 Eastern Time and participants would call 218-862-8237 with an access code of 58214.
With high anticipation for the up-coming meeting, NCCC’s Secretary General Richmond Mohamed Konneh wrote, “How proud am I to be a part of something that measures the extent to which we truly value education and the future of our children?” It is not exactly clear what would be the prefer answer to Richmond Mohamed Konneh’s question, but the results of Sunday’s teleconference will determine that.
One thing that is clear to the world is that, the war in Liberia was a complete setback for ordinary Liberians and their children, prompting refugee crises across West Africa. The educational system of the West African costal nation was completely demoralized, leaving learning facilities in ruins, teachers escaping for their lives amongst other things.
The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, UNCHR, the International Rescue Committee and other Non-governmental Organizations quickly intercede in an effort to curtail sufferings Liberians endured at the time. While the war was on-going, these Non-governmental organizations constructed refugee schools across the region in an effort to keep Liberian kids in school.
Without their urgent intervention, there is no doubt that Liberia’s educational system would have been in total shamble. Whatever the outcome of Sunday’s teleconference, the fact remains that Liberians from all backdrops are leaving no stone unturned in rescuing the educational quandary their country has experienced for years.
