The One World Link Centre in Bo has just benefitted from some significant investment.
The OWL Centre on Mattru Road in Bo forms the hub of OWL’s activities in the city. Completed in 2007 it offers two conference / meeting rooms of different sizes, an office for OWL and a six-bedroom guest house. It is where OWL members and friends visiting from the UK always stay in Bo.
The OWL Committees in both Bo and Warwick agreed that after ten years some investment was needed, both to maintain the centre and also to improve facilities it can offer. The meeting rooms in particular are an important source of income and are well used by groups requiring meeting space in the city.
Under the management of Maada Fobay and the Bo OWL Committee, we have recently purchased; a large television (with a digital satellite subscription – particularly useful for showing educational programmes for teacher training), a data projector and screen, some moveable display boards and new curtains. The centre has also been repainted and in the yard the concrete surface has been replaced and the murals repainted. (The one of Jane Knight now has a distinct regal look to it!) Improvements have also been made to the solar lighting. Further planned improvements include buying more chairs and tables for the meeting rooms.
