On Friday June 17, Global Atlanta featured an article about the University Consortium for Liberia (UCL) Chief Financial Officer and PhD candidate Saki Golafale. Right now, Saki is in Liberia campaigning for the UCL and giving back to Liberian chemistry students with his ChemTalk lecture. As a former UCL student, after he receives his PhD in chemistry from Clark Atlanta University, Saki must return to Liberia and teach for two years.
The article states:
When Saki T. Golafale had the chance to address an education and business conference four years ago at the University of Liberia in Monrovia, Liberia, he took full advantage to decry the lack of laboratories, equipment and textbooks at his alma mater blocking his efforts to further his chemistry studies.
Liberia was still getting over decades of civil wars that claimed the lives of hundreds of thousands of Liberians, and the ebola crisis still hadn’t taken hold.
