KNUST students donate to Kansaworado Catholic Early Childhood Development Centre

ECDC 1Students studying Master of Science (Msc) in Development Management at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), on Saturday, donated learning aids to the Kansaworado Catholic Early Childhood Development Centre in Takoradi.

The gesture was in partial fulfillment of the MSc. Development Management Course and also in the spirit of philanthropy and social entrepreneurship.

Apart from donating the learning aids and cupboards, the group also embarked on a clean-up exercise in the classrooms to ensure that they were ready for use by pupils when  school reopens.

In her remarks, a member of the class, Miss Loretta Odame Awuah, stated that the group believed that education was one of the proven vehicles to sustainable development.

To ensure pupils of the Kansaworado Early Childhood Development centre achieve inclusive and quality education, the team provided teaching/learning aids for all  the four  classes – nursery 1 and 2, Kindergarten 1 and 2, and cupboards to keep their  books.

A signage indicating the school’s name and colourful alphabets were also drawn on the school’s main wall overlooking the main Takoradi by-pass.

Explaining the choice of Kansaworado Catholic Early Childhood Learning Centre, Miss Awuah said, the group of six, selected the refurbishment of the Kansaworado nursery cluster school with the aim of contributing to goal four of the Sustainable Development Goals which aspires “to ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all.”

The Headmistress of the Kansaworodo Early Childhood Development Centre, Miss Margarete Owoo, expressed her joy for the donations and the good works done by the KNUST students, saying that “the school has been rebranded.”

“Our school is now brighter to the public, showing the alphabets and numerals which would help improve learning as the children recite and recall the oral lessons. We can also safely keep our books and cutlery; maintain good environmental hygiene and security. We are, indeed, motivated and encouraged to do our best for the children and community,” she said.
