  • 0


President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has recently assured Women Behind Wheels (WBW) of government’s continued support to help empower less fortunate and street girls in various employable skills including driving, painting, hospitality and business throughout the country aimed at enhancing their proficiency, growth and sustainability of adolescent girls and young women.

According to an Executive Mansion release, President Sirleaf gave the assurance when she received in audience Madam Lucy Page, Executive Director, CEP/Women behind Wheels at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. She urged them to conclude all necessary arrangements and discussions in getting the process under way. “Look, I love the NTA model and I will like for the Authority to take charge of the process,” President Sirleaf noted.

The President said if the process is successful, her government will encourage other donors to help donate more cars to the program to enable the empowerment of Women Behind Wheels.

“It has got to be successful and working for other people to be able to put their money behind it” she emphasized.

She furthered stated that, within 6-months, beneficiaries of the program will be able to say that at least they put their money behind something that they can benefit from by paying their rent and being able to send their children to school.

In the opinion of the Liberian leader, in light of the new arrangement, anyone interested in the service, will pace in a call to the National Transit Authority that will in turn call any of the Women behind Wheels to step forward. This she said will enable the NTA to advertise to the public in terms of the number of women they need while at the same promoting them.
