|REPORT FOR MARYLANDERS FOR PROGRESS
MAY 31, 2002
May 13, 2002
I arrived in Harper, Maryland County on Monday May 13, 2002. Upon my arrival, I immediately delivered the individual letters from the President of MFP. The Superintendent of the County, Mr. Horatio Morais had traveled to Monrovia when I arrived in Cape Palmas so his letter was given to the Acting Superintendent, Mr. Nyemah. As I delivered the letters I informed each of those connected directly or indirectly with the MFP projects and the county officials about my visit and what I wanted to accomplish on behalf of MFP. Those I met included Mr. Dio Harris Supervisor of Schools for Maryland County, Mr. Victor Walker, Coordinator of Africa House and MFP Projects, Mr. Wade Dennis, President, Liberia Marketing Association of Maryland County, and Mr. Jenkins Yancy, the City Mayor. I express my interest in organizing a town meeting with the County officials and to arrange a meeting with the marketers who have benefited from the loan system.

May 14th was a national holiday, so I could not do much. I visited Mr. Walker at his Marsh Street office for debriefing about MFP projects. He told me that most of the books sent by MFP had arrived and that Mr. Harris and his staff are stamping the books before distributing them to the school districts. I later reminded him that MFP want a written report on MFP project. He assured me that he would have the report ready before the day of my departure. Unfortunately, the report was not ready at the time of my departure. Continue here
