About 3 Basic Schools Benefit From Dsane Foundation
A Ghanaian registered Non-Governmental Organization, Dsane Foundation, in collaboration with De Harlekijn and De Zevensprong, two basic schools in the Netherlands, have donated educational materials to some basic schools in three regions of Ghana.
The schools are Rokai Memorial Academy, a school in Teshie-Accra, Assin Adubiase Methodist basic school in the Central Region and Kwahu-Mpraeso Presby basic school, also in the Eastern region.
The items which include furniture for teachers and pupils, computers, whiteboards, dustbins, plastic draws and bars, and playing toys, worth GHS60, 000 were presented at separate events at the schools on Monday, January 22 and Tuesday, January 23, 2018 respectively.
Nii Nmai Dsane, a native of Teshie, living in the Netherlands, indicated that his desire to contribute to the development of the country where he was born, was what motivated him and his wife, Lawrencia Dsane, to mobilize the items with the support of friends and family.
He charged the teachers to ensure that the items are well maintained and put to proper use. He said, it is only by that, that he and his collaborators will be encouraged to do more.
The member of Parliament for Ledzokuku-Krowo constituency, Dr. Nii Okoe Boye, the Municipal Chief Executive, Naa Adjeley Twum-Gyamrah and Director of education, Mrs. Gloria Naa Ahinee Clerk who attended the Teshie event all expressed their appreciation for the gesture and assured that they would supervise the proper use of the items at the school.
The District Chief Executive for Assin South, Derrick Owusu Ambrose, who also graced the Assin Adubiase Methodist Basic School event, acknowledged that the items would go a long way to help improve teaching and learning in the school.
He called on all past pupils and well-to-do individuals who hail from the area to come and support the school, which will be celebrating its 111th anniversary this year.
At Mpraeso, the headmistress of the school, Madam Rebecca Anokye described the donation of the computers as an answer to their prayer.
According to her, the number of computers the school has for the teaching of the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) subject was woefully inadequate.
The donation was therefore timely intervention that was going to boost the teaching and learning of the subject to a very large extent.
