Vacation classes being held in one of the GREL- sponsored schoolsThe Ghana Rubber Estates Limited (GREL) has invested over GH¢2.1million in support of educational projects and other social interventions in its catchment area.

The money was used to finance the building of school blocks, water projects, community centres between 2014 and 2015.

Mr. Perry Acheampong, Corporate Affairs Manager of GREL, told The Ghanaian Times here that despite the operational and revenue challenges experienced in 2015, GREL spent over GH¢1.1million on social development projects.

He said the company has prioritised education and the health in the catchment area because of their importance to the socio-economic growth of communities, and would therefore continue to invest in those areas.

Apart from the provision of school blocks and furniture, he said teachers in the area were also offered packages to motivate them to give off their best.
