In the quest to enhance computer literacy among children, Karpowership Ghana Limited has provided a fully furnished ultra-modern computer laboratory for Manhean Anglican JHS in Tema、
The laboratory comprises of 31 computer sets and desks.
Prior to this intervention, the school had no computers and students had to be taken to near-by schools for practical ICT lessons.
Speaking at the inauguration, Volkan Buyukbicer, Country Manager of Karpowership, said “this donation is fully aligned with Karpowership’s corporate social responsibility to support education and raise literacy levels in communities we are operating in.”
According to him, the speedy growth in technology has made acquiring knowledge in the sector very necessary.
“It has become very important for every individual to be up-to-date in the use of computers, and this is seen in the inclusion of ICT in the curricula of every school. That is why we embraced the opportunity to attend to this important need of Manhean Anglican JHS,” he stressed.
Mrs. Marian Cobblah, Headmistress of Manhean Anglican JHS, expressed gratitude to Karpowership for the support, which she described as “timely and significant.”
“This donation will surely boost students concentration in class and enhance teachers’ efficiency in the teaching of ICT.
“We are very delighted to have benefitted from this initiative,” she said.
Isaac Ashai Odamtten, Tema Metropolitan Executive, also lauded the initiative and commended the company for supporting education in the Tema Manhean community.
“The record Karpowership has set, in adopting this computer lab is going to have far reaching benefits,” he said.
“You have demonstrated strongly that there is power in friendship and I want this friendship to grow into partnership. The Tema Metropolitan Assembly assures you of a lasting support so together we can brighten the Tema Metropolitan Education system.”
Last month, the company donated learning materials which included back packs, stationery and other learning materials to 2000 students at the Manhean Anglican Cluster of Schools.
It also presented a one-year bursary to 100 needy but brilliant students at Manhean Presbyterian Primary School and Manhean TMA Primary and JHS.
