Liberia: APM Terminals Launches Educational Scholarship Program

APM Terminals Liberia launched the Scholarship Sponsorship Program through its commitment to corporate social responsibility. The program aims to provide greater opportunities for the underprivileged and empower the next generation of leaders, and has seen 120 students receive scholarship sponsorship from six institutions across the country.

Last month’s special launch at the Boulevard Palace Hotel was honored by Montserrado County Senator Sah Joseph and 13th Montserrado County Representative Edward Pappe Flomo.

The meeting was attended by representatives, administrators and students from various eligible institutions from within District 13 and 14 respectively.

The sponsorship program initially covers the six institutions, namely: Highway Baptist High School, Boakai Konneh Foundation School, Jimmy Jolocon School, God’s Glory Elementary School, and Reverend Peter Amos George Memorial Academy.

The respective organizations were selected after needs assessment and close consultation with stakeholders in APM Terminals Liberia and qualified in accordance with the company’s CSR compliance policies.

Other schools are expected to join the board when eligibility requirements are met.

Speaking at the event, Representative Edward Flomo expressed his appreciation to APM Terminals Liberia for aligning with the immediate needs of the communities and putting the initiative into action. He said, “It has been three long years since I assumed the position of District 13 representative, however, I am grateful to the APMT family that from now on, we will continue to see APM Terminals more robust in their corporate social responsibilities.”

Mr. Prince Toh of Reverend Peter Amos George Memorial Academy spoke on behalf of the students and enthusiastically praised ABM Terminals Liberia.

“On behalf of my fellow colleagues, I would like to thank the APMT management for this great initiative and assistance to us as students. We assure you that we will do everything in our power to maintain the recommended grades to remain in this program,” he said.

Senator Sah Joseph of Montserrado County praised the new APMT-Liberia administration and encouraged the company to do more to highlight several social interventions such as the Scholarship Scheme.

“I would like to express my gratitude to the management of APM Terminals for this great project and urge other franchises to follow suit,” Senator Joseph said.
