A youth group in Nimba County has launched a cleaning exercise aimed at giving the commercial district of Ganta a face-lift.

The Liberia United Youth for Community Safety and Development is cleaning the city with technical support from the Environmental Protection Agency.

The local group is to relocate some of dump sites in Ganta.

The head of the group told Star Radio his group decided to carry out the exercise in order to support government’s national clean-up campaign.

Mr. Fred Johnson said with support from the United Nations Organization for Youth, the campaign would be extended to other bigger towns in Nimba County.
