In Sierra Leone, London Mining Trains Teachers on Library Management

In collaboration with Construction and Development Partnership (CODEP) the London Mining Company on Monday 18th October, 2010 trained about 63 Teachers from 33 Schools within the company’s mining communities on Library Management at the St. Peters Parish Hall, Lunsar Town in the Port Loko District.


Speaking at the ceremony, the Chairman Rev. Pat Abdulai welcomed the idea by the company to undertake such a novel venture in their chiefdoms, while calling on the participants to take the training seriously in order to improve on their teaching skills.


Giving an overview of the Project, CODEP Chairman Alieu Badara Kamara of Waterloo informed that it was an extension of a project that started five years ago when Waterloo in Sierra Leone and Waterloo in England twined, a partnership he said that engendered exchange visits between teachers of the two distinct communities.  He disclosed that in that exchange visit by Waterloo Schools’ teachers, they submitted a proposal to their counterparts in England for a community library facility which construction is ongoing. He said when completed, the Library at Waterloo will be one of the biggest in West Africa that will cater for students of all categories.


Mr. Kamara however, went on to say that they were humbled by the request made by London Mining for CODEP to do feasibility study in their mining communities for the construction and management of libraries, the training of teachers forming part of that study. For that reason he admonished the teachers to make good use of that opportunity. 


In his keynote address, LMC’s Government and Community Relations Officer Mr. Tom Tucker revealed that they have already identified 53 schools, both primary and secondary, where the libraries will be constructed. He added that as part of corporate responsibility, the company operates in the three core areas Education, Health and Environment.  He said they bought the idea from CODEP to demonstrate their belief in educations as key to development. “The construction of libraries in schools will help broaden the knowledge base of the children through researches,” he assured, while urging the teachers to focus on the sessions. He said they were going to serve as trainers of those who are not in the first training. He on that note appealed to them to be very bold and ask relevant questions for clarification during the training session.
