Karpowership Ghana Limited has welcomed about 2,000 students in the Manhean Anglican Cluster of Schools back to school with learning materials.
The items include bags, pencil cases, exercise books, pens, pencils and erasers.
The company also presented a one-year bursary to 100 needy but brilliant students in Manhean Presbyterian Primary School and Manhean TMA Primary and JHS.
The bursary is aimed at assisting low-income families in the community who cannot finance the education of their children.
The gesture was to exhibit the company’s corporate social responsibility initiative and to provide the needed educational materials in the bid to enhance teaching and learning in public schools at Tema.
Mr. Volkan Buyukbicer, Country Manager for Karpowership, said the company was pleased to contribute its quota to the development of public schools in the community in which it operates.
“Guided by our core value of community responsibility, Karpowership cares for the less privileged and remains committed to the improvement of communities we operate in,” he said.
“We believe that if the students are motivated in the classroom, they will grow to achieve great things in future. Hence, we are committed to help with the tools and resources they need to achieve these great things.”
The heads of the beneficiary schools expressed appreciation to the company for the support, and pledged to offer quality education for the children.
“We are very grateful for these donations and we promise to put the items to good use, to raise academic standards of the school,” said Elizabeth Oppong, headmistress of Anglican Primary A and B.
Rachael Mensah, a beneficiary from the Manhean TMA, pledged on behalf of her colleagues, to make good use of the bursary by achieving academic excellence.
