Pupils of three primary and junior high schools in the Gomoa West District of the Central Region have benefited from a free school uniform and footwear distribution project being undertaken by the Education and Book Appeal Ghana (TEABAG), a charity organisation.
More than 130 pupils from the three schools, consisting of the Gomoa-Mankoadze, Onyadze and Abrekum Primary and Junior High Schools, received the free uniforms and shoes.
The distribution was part of the TEABAG’s intervention to support the education of children in deprived communities.
TEABAG is a British charity organisation founded by Roger Gillman, chairman of the Gillman and Abbey Funeral Home in Accra.
The items were presented on behalf of TEABAG by Mr. Castro Amoah, manager of the Mankoadze Vocational College and Integrated Community Centre for Employable Skills (ICCES), and were meant to help the needy pupils of the three schools.
Mr. Ben Hlovor, headteacher of Mankoadze Primary and Methodist Junior High School, thanked the management of TEABAG for the gesture, and was confident that the materials would boost the morale of the pupils to attend school regularly.
