Mike Hammah Education Fund assists 300 students


Winneba, May 4, GNA - The Mike Hammah Education Trust Fund has within three years of its establishment assisted 300 students to continue their education at the senior high school and tertiary level.

Prof Kokawole Raheem, Chairman of the Board Directors of the Fund, made this known at a day's scholarship forum in Winneba under the theme “Educating the Brilliant but Needy Students, a Collective responsibility”.

Prof. Raheem said the Board had put in place measures including visits to beneficiarie schools to acquaint themselves with their general performance and behaviour.

The beneficiaries are from the Effutu Municipality, Gomoa and Ekumfi areas.

He said any student found not performing would have his or her scholarship withdrawn.

The Minister for Lands and Natural Resources, Mr Mike Allen Hammah, appealed to stakeholders in education to contribute towards the government's efforts at ensuring quality education in the country.

He appealed to beneficiary students to concentrate on their education and not to indulge in things that could lead to their destruction and also hinder their education.

Mrs Sally Nelly Coleman, a member of the Board, appealed to parents applying for scholarship for their children not to give wrong information about their children.

Nii Ephraim Effutu, the Municipal Chief Executive who is also a board member, appealed to parents to support their children to complete their education.
