Sierra Leone’s Ambassador to the State of Kuwait, Haja Ishata Thomas, has submitted the Bill of Quantity (BOQ), Architectural Drawings, and copies of the site plan to Direct Aid Headquarters for the construction of the six technical/vocational institutes in Sierra Leone.
The documents were submitted following a request made by Dr Abdullah Abdulrahman Al-Sumait during his engagement with Ambassador Haja Ishata Thomas earlier this year.
Receiving the documents, Direct Aid’s Senior Consultant of Higher Education, Prof Maged Al-Sherbiny, noted that the identification of the pieces of land in the respective districts was key, adding that after completion, Direct Aid would seek the importance of securing endowment for this project to secure its sustainability in the future.
The construction of the six technical/vocational institutes is part of President Julius Maada Bio’s desire to develop the country’s human capital by establishing polytechnic institutions, fully equipped with modern tools for vocational education and training in various district headquarter towns.
Areas identified by the President for the construction of the six Technical/vocational Institutions were Fabala, Karene, Makeni, Port Loko, Mattru Jong, and Koindu.
