"It is our charge to make Nimba great again and galvanize our collective engagements for Nimba to become the educational, agricultural and infrastructural hub that it ought to be in Liberia."

What will Edith
do for the people of Nimba?

Stronger Agriculture—
Support for Farmers

I understand and know the economic and social benefits of investing in the agricultural sector. Agriculture is one of the main catalysts for sustainable economic development and growth, foreign exchange savings, poverty reduction, food self-sufficiency, and job creation. Understandably, this requires significant public investments. If Liberia remains dependent on importation of its main staple foods, the nation will continue to exist at the mercy of other nations, thus threatening our national security interests.

Quality Education—
Support affordable education

Education is the engine that propels a country towards its greatest potentials. To paraphrase Nelson Mandela, Education is the most powerful tool one can use to change the world. I believe that the most important asset a nation has is its people. Therefore, I will champion government’s investments in its people. I believe that Liberia must prioritize and adequately invest in quality and affordable education that is accessible to ALL Liberians.

Who is
| Edith Gongloe-Weh?

I am the daughter of the late Wilfred Kehleboe Gongloe (Teacher)and Elizabeth Menguah Gongloe (Farmer). I am a mother of four beautiful children and a wife to an amazing husband of 20 years.

My father committed his entire life to the education of his people. After graduating from the Winnifred Harley Practical Nursing School in Ganta, Nimba County, my father was offered a nursing position by the then Liberian-American-Swedish Mining Company (LAMCO). Instead, he chose to pursue a career in education, to help educate his people. Upon graduation from the Zorzor Teacher’s Training Institute, my father returned to his village where he established a primary school to provide educational opportunities for village kids, who would not have had any means or opportunity to ever learn how to read and write.
