Participants posed with facilitators shortly after the ceremony.BRAC Liberia’s Agriculture, Food Security and Livelihood (AFSL) program has ended a successful implementation of the Pro-resilience Pro-Act 2015 project sponsored by the European Union (EU).The project was implemented in six food insecure counties out of 15 in Liberia; the project began in October 2016 and ended in September 2018.In 2017, BRAC-Liberia and the EU held an inception workshop and launched the project, coded, “Supporting the Poor and Food and Nutrition Insecure to React to Crises and Strengthen Resilience,” which ended in September 2018.The day-long Learning Sharing Workshop was organized in Monrovia on September 26 as a concluding event for the project that also organized six other similar Learning Sharing workshops in Margibi, Montserrado, Bomi, Grand Cape Mount, Grand Bassa and Bong counties.The Pro-resilience Pro-ACT 2015 EU project focused on climate smart agriculture, poultry and livestock production, and comprehensive homestead development for strengthening value chain activities.The project also reached a significant number of community members through nutrition awareness, mother forum and resilient building campaign.As implementing partner, BRAC-Liberia works in close collaboration with authorities of the Ministry of Agriculture (MoA) to support the Liberia Agricultural Transformation Agenda (LATA), which is one of the strongest pillars of the Weah Administration Pro-poor Agenda.At the occasion, BRAC-Liberia Acting Country Representative, Aisha Nansamba, lauded all parties that made the project successful.“When you do not acknowledge the lessons learned, you are bound to face daunting challenges,” Nansamba cautioned the farmers.She encouraged them to seek quality outcome and improve their own livelihood, adding: “As the program fizzles out, farmers need to leverage on the training as well as train volunteers to continue enhancing their livelihood.”Mrs. Nansamba said that BRAC, through working with local volunteers, farmers, community leaders, and the MoA, provided sustainability to the project both during the implementation phase and the phase out period.She also said that BRAC-Liberia Food Security and Livelihood Program envision reducing food insecurity and malnutrition in Liberia, catalyzing a shift from subsistence to commercial farming.She named capacity building; improved farming, livelihood and livestock rearing and nutrition awareness as some of the interventions made by the project which, according to her, achieved its overall program objectives.Mrs. Nansamba also highlighted other programs BRAC-Liberia is currently operating, including the Microfinance, Health, Empowerment and Livelihood for Adolescents, Agriculture and Livestock production, Education and Targeting the Ultra Poor (TUP)/Graduation program.Furthermore, she said that the entity has been operating since 2008 and over time expanded its operations to 10 counties.EU Representative David Palacios said that strengthening resilience is cardinal to building a sustainable society, especially through agriculture and health.Palacios highlighted community involvement in various development initiatives in the country as key to having maximum impact on vulnerable communities. The EU Representative praised BRAC Liberia for the successful implementation of the PRO ACT 2015 project.Agriculture Minister Mogana S. Flomo said he has observed that 60 percent of the country’s population live below the poverty line with no food — a trend, he said, needs to be changed. To address such a situation, he called on Liberians to go back to the soil, adding, “we have spent half of the time paying attention to the extractive industries, which never yielded any tangible results.”“There are no excuses that can be considered for failing to feed the population, because there are always opportunities that can be harnessed in improving the livelihoods of the people of Liberia, especially when the country is endowed with good weather, and soil to grow varieties of food,” Flomo said.He the encouraged the farmers to transfer their already acquired skills in the sector to people desirous of becoming professional farmers.He also commended BRAC-Liberia for helping the country in agriculture sector, but at the same time, called on Liberians be serious, “because agriculture is not a drama, and therefore, we will not become resilient as a country if we failed to change our mindset.”BRAC International Agriculture Program Manager, Habibur Rahman Khan, underscored the importance of the project’s objective to enhance the capacities of vulnerable groups; to improve food crisis, and sustainably produce and access food.He said the project activities were based on strengthening farmers through producer groups by selecting smallholder farmers for climate smart agriculture and vulnerable groups for poultry and livestock rearing, formed 300 producer groups comprising 20-25 members per group, one lead farmer selected from each group.According to Mr. Khan, 5,200 smallholder farmers were developed on Climate Smart Agriculture technologies and comprehensive homestead development, 1625 vulnerable households received training and support on livelihood and livestock rearing, raised awareness of 6825 community members on resilience building (agriculture and disaster), 390 most vulnerable households supported with Cash for Work opportunities and converted 213 acres of bush land into cultivable land.The project developed 260 Community Agriculture and Livestock Promoters to provide agriculture extension services to community residents, 27 entrepreneurs to support the value chain activities, strengthened 90 market actors to act as linking agents, reached 2,725 lactating, pregnant and child bearing mothers through mothers forum meetings, and also reached 5,260 households through nutrition awareness campaigns to promote diversified and nutritious food preparation, consumption and increased nutrition educationFurthermore, the project developed Disaster Risk and Vulnerability Assessment report, trained 40 community based organization leaders on disseminating available weather information on agriculture and nutrition, organized capacity building workshop for 50 government staffs, organized agricultural fair for disseminating modern technologies, and also established 300 demonstrations farm to disseminate the technology.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
By Scott Wolf STAFF WRITER USC officials are confident they will win a university hearing on whether the school should grant wide receiver Jamere Holland a full release to transfer to Oregon, according to sources. Holland won the right to transfer to Oregon during a hearing last month, but he was not given permission to receive a scholarship by the Ducks. That means he would have to attend as a walk-on and pay out-of-state tuition costs. USC officials believe they have a strong case because if Holland wins, it might set a precedent for athletes to transfer within the Pacific-10 Conference without going through proper procedures. According to sources, USC believes Holland began contacting other schools before he actually received a release to begin communications with other schools. Holland could not be reached for comment. A university committee of non-athletic department personnel will determine if Holland is granted a full release. He needs to enroll at Oregon by Oct. 3 in order to attend classes in the fall and redshirt. McKnight frustrated A day after Carroll said he tried to bring freshman tailback Joe McKnight along too fast, McKnight admitted he is frustrated by his slow start. “I feel I’ve got a lot of stuff to prove,” McKnight said. “I’m being impatient with myself. The coaches told me to relax.” McKnight was told by offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian that it took Reggie Bush five or six games before he made a big impression as a freshman. “I don’t want to wait that long,” McKnight said. McKnight also blamed himself for his two fumbles this season. He also said his sprained knee is healed. Because of McKnight’s slow start, USC is trying to simplify his role with less plays as a slotback. “We’re going to play more of him at running back and less of that fringe stuff,” Sarkisian said. “He’s such a demanding kid. He expects himself to play great. I went back and looked at Reggie Bush’s first four games his freshman year and it wasn’t special. “There was not a lot going on.” USC injury updates Carroll said linebacker Brian Cushing (sprained ankle) will be a game-time decision because he did not practice as much as hoped Wednesday. “He’s not 100 percent, I don’t know how it will be,” Carroll said. Cushing insisted he will be ready for the Washington State game. Clay Matthews is playing, but wearing a cast on his left hand because he broke his thumb against Nebraska, so Thomas Williams took most of the snaps Wednesday. Michael Morgan is also practicing at the position. Sensational scout Quarterback Mitch Mustain starred on the scout team with a long touchdown pass to Brandon Carswell among several impressive passes during practice. “I’m trying to (make an impression),” Mustain said. Carroll also came away impressed. “I found out about the (scout) team,” he said. “Guys are battling.” Around the nation Hawaii: Quarterback Colt Brennan was sidelined by an injured right ankle for the second straight day of practice, but he’s hopeful of playing Saturday against Charleston Southern. Wearing a light brace and using crutches, Brennan watched from the sideline as backup Tyler Graunke worked out with the first-team offense. Brennan said he’s “dying to play,” but the ankle still needs to heal. An MRI revealed no serious damage, he said. Sul Ross State: Linebacker Mike Flynt, who is 59 years old, will have to wait another week to play in a college football game for the first time in 37 years. Flynt said that doctors have not cleared him to play Saturday in Sul Ross State’s home opener against East Texas Baptist. He’s now eyeing the game against Howard Payne in Brownwood a week from Saturday for his first game since he learned he had a year of eligibility left and returned to the university to live out his dream.

At a Burbank council meeting earlier this year, Los Angeles Councilman Tom LaBonge, whose district includes Toluca Lake, proposed the hybrid alternative to quell residents’ concerns. “We’re trying to do what’s best for all of us,” LaBonge said Monday. “I’ll await what they say. No one wants anything in their neighborhood; I understand that. We’re trying to balance that out.” The proposed line is part of a plan to handle future growth. Los Angeles is also under a court order to make $2 billion in sewer upgrades to avoid overflows, such as those that occurred during the 1998 El Nio storms. If the Los Angeles City Council approves a final environmental impact report this summer, work could begin on the project by 2010. BURBANK – A proposed compromise on construction of a Los Angeles sewer line through Burbank is expected to be rejected by the Burbank City Council tonight because of local residents’ concerns about noise, odor and traffic. Los Angeles officials have devised a “hybrid” alignment for the $150 million project that they said would travel underneath fewer homes, but the Burbank council is being advised by its staff to reject that plan. Instead, staff members want Los Angeles officials to stick with the south alignment for the project, which would go through a small corner of Burbank and would “completely stay away from Burbank residents,” said Rodney Andersen, Burbank’s principal civil engineer. The hybrid plan would snake under Forest Lawn Drive, a nonresidential area, and cut north under homes and businesses along the Burbank-Los Angeles border near Clybourn Avenue.

1 Every man out there seeing Kyle Walker block that shot. #ENG #WorldCup pic.twitter.com/87ZiXwxBNz— FanDuel (@FanDuel) July 11, 2018 KYLE WALKER DIED AND WAS BORN AGAIN THERE.— Men in Blazers (@MenInBlazers) July 11, 2018 The Manchester City defender stopped a goal bound effort from Ivan Rakitic with a rather tender part of his midriff with England on the ropes in their World Cup semi-final.Rather than let it slow him down, he rose majestically to head away a dangerous cross just moments later, before having a well-deserved break.Needless to say, fans loved it and were more than happy to broadcast it on social media.Check out the best reaction below! I’m sure all men will join me in saluting Kyle Walker there. Giving absolutely everything for his country🍆— Dream Team (@dreamteamfc) July 11, 2018 Kyle Walker endured a rather painful moment in the World Cup semi-final Getty Kyle walker unbelievable 🙌🏽🙌🏽🙌🏽🙌🏽— Yungen (@YungenPlayDirty) July 11, 2018 Over the years, England have had many heroes put their bodies on the line for the Three Lions.Images of Paul Ince and Terry Butcher bloodied and bruised for the sake of their country have elevated them to icon status.And Kyle Walker may have just put himself in the pantheon of those legends. If England reach the final they’ll owe a lot to Kyle Walker’s, er, midriff.— Tony Barrett (@TonyBarrett) July 11, 2018
THE leader or the Orange Order today praised the Queen’s visit – saying it had helped build relationships on the island and helped Orange members in the Republic to be par of society.Thousands of members of the Orange Order were in Co Donegal today for their annual July gathering at Rossnowlagh.Lodges from counties Donegal, Cavan, Leitrim and Monaghan, as well as visiting Orangemen from the Six Counties, were among those taking part in the event. Grand Master of Grand Orange Lodge in January Edward Stevenson spoke about the British Queen’s recent visit to this State.“I seem to be spending quite a bit of my time in the Irish Republic – and I am thoroughly enjoying it,” he said.“Only a few weeks ago, along with other senior Orangemen, I attended the official visit of her Majesty the Queen to Dublin.“The visit was a triumph for everyone involved and in particular the people who live here in the Irish Republic and regard themselves as coming from the British culture. “Thanks to the tremendous and dignified welcome given to her Majesty the Queen, British people can hold their heads high in this community and be proud of their beliefs and their culture.“And that is what we are doing here today.“We are in the Irish Republic but we are celebrating our British culture and identity. And we are a threat to no-one. In fact the people here want to play their part in the civic society of this country.”Newspaper reports linking today’s parade with a visit by the President turned out not to be correct.ORANGEMEN WANT TO PLAY PART IN CIVIC SOCIETY, LEADER TELLS DONEGAL PARADE was last modified: July 9th, 2011 by gregShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Edward Stevensonorange order paradeQueen ElizabethRossnowlagh
