ABii National Savings and Loans has donated an amount of GHȼ 15,000.00 to the Pentecost University College (PUC), as part of activities marking the University’s decade anniversary celebrations.
The donation is in support of a bore-hole project, which the University is embarking on in a bid to improve on the availability and quality of water for students’ use.
Mr Ashie Bennet, the Head of Corporate Affairs of ABii National Savings and Loans, in his remarks during the presentation of the cheque to PUC in Accra, said that the donation formed part of the company’s corporate social responsibility activities lined up for the year.
He said that upon hearing of the decade celebrations of the University, ABii National sought to identify some of the pressing needs of the institution in order to assist in finding solutions, touching on the fact that the provision of quality education is vital to the development of any country and economy.
ABii National, he said, has always had a vision of supporting the educational sector in the country and hence they were glad to have found a partnership with the Pentecost University College.
Mr Ashie was also quick to mention that due to the popular saying that “water is life”, ABii National wants to make sure that all students within the campus of the PUC have access to good, safe and clean drinking water in order to guarantee the quality of life.
He called on all well-meaning Ghanaians and corporate bodies to come to the aid of the various educational institutions in the country in order to solve some of the many pressing challenges facing them.
Receiving the donation, Reverend Dr Peter Ohene Kyei, the Rector of PUC, expressed his profound gratitude to ABii National for their kind gesture.
He said the donation would go a long way to assist in the bore-holes projects that they were embarking upon; as well as a modern resourced library that would enhance academic performance.
The rector was also full of praise to ABii National and the Tobinco Group for the manner in which they had positioned themselves as an attractive and caring brand in their rather short period of establishment.
He was hopeful that in the near future, PUC would have more vibrant partnerships with the two institutions and wished ABii National well in efforts to become a fully-fledged commercial bank soon.
Mr Michael Gyimah, the Acting Registrar of PUC, expressed his delight at the fact that ABii National had shown interest in the affairs of the institution.
