Liberia: APM Terminals Liberia Launches Educational Scholarship Program

APM Terminal 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 scholarships from six institutions across the country.

The special opening that took place last month at the Boulevard Palace Hotel was welcomed by the senior Senator from Montserrado County, Hon. Sah Joseph, and District Representative No. 13, Mr. Edward Pape Flomo from Montserrado County. The meeting was attended by representatives, officials and students from various eligible institutions from within District 13 and 14 respectively.

The sponsorship program initially covers six (6) institutions which are; 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 a needs assessment and close consultation with stakeholders at APM Terminal Liberia and qualified them 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, sir. Edward Flomo appreciated APM Terminal Liberia for aligning with the immediate needs of the communities and putting the initiative into action. “It has been three long years since I took over as District 13 Representative, however, I am grateful to the APMT family that we will continue to see stronger in the company’s social responsibilities,” he said.

Prince Tweh of Reverend Peter Amos George Memorial Academy spoke on behalf of the students and enthusiastically praised APM Terminal Liberia.
