GHL Bank supports School Feeding Programme



GHL Bank has donated exercise books and 10,000 bowls to the School Feeding Programme (SFP).

The items are to be distributed to deprived children in deprived communities.

The move according to the GHL Bank, formed part of its corporate social responsibility mandate which seeks to support disadvantaged communities in and around areas the bank operated.

Presenting the bowls to the SFP, the Supervisor of Corporate Communications and Brand Management at GHL Bank, Mrs Sylvia Adadey said, “Education and the wellbeing of children are areas the bank seeks to support as they are key to the development of the nation. We saw a dire need in this area as the programme struggles with distributing food to children due to logistical challenges such as lack of bowls.”

The Deputy Chief Executive Officer of the SFP, Mrs Gertrude Quashigah who received the items expressed gratitude to the bank for the support, saying, “We are so excited about this donation and thank GHL Bank for catering to this need.  The bowls will be distributed to selected schools in the Volta, Central and Ashanti and Greater Accra regions where they will go a long way to alleviate some of the operational hitches faced by some schools under the programme.”

She called on other corporate bodies to assist the SFP, stating that no offer of help was too small.

The programme was launched in 2005 with the goal of contributing to poverty reduction and increased food security in Ghana.

Among the objectives of the programme is malnutrition and hunger reduction for school children, increase in enrolment, attendance and retention and boost in domestic food production.

GHL Bank, formerly known as Ghana Home Loans, offers full universal baking solutions and has opened branches in Accra, Tema, Kumasi and Takoradi and remains the largest home loan provider in Ghana with over 50 per cent market share of the mortgage industry and its online banking and Wealth360 mobile application makes the bank accessible to all, irrespective of location.
