Accra, June 7, GNA - Vodafone Foundation has presented books to the St Thomas Aquinas school in Accra.
The External Affairs and Legal Department of Vodafone Ghana presented more than 150 books covering various topics to the school.
The gesture which was in response to a TV3 news feature on the poor state of the school's library is also part of a 25 impactful community projects the company's employees are undertaking to mark 25-years of the Vodafone Group Foundation.
The team, which was led by the External Affairs Director, Gayheart Mensah and Head of Vodafone Ghana Foundation Nana Yaa Ofori-Koree, would also organise career counselling and mentorship activities for the students.
Commenting on the need to support the school, Nana Yaa Ofori-Koree said 'as a socially responsive company, we remain committed to providing platforms for our employees to truly impact their communities. We believe the books donated will inculcate in students the habit of reading and researching, while improving the teaching and learning process'.
The Headmaster of the school, Mr Cyril Dadey who received the donations on behalf of the school thanked TV3 for airing the plight of the school to the public for help.
'We are more than grateful the news item carried by TV3 has yielded results and today Vodafone Ghana is supporting our school with various books covering the SHS syllabi. I can assure you that the donation will certainly go a long way to develop the knowledge of the students as they prepare for their examinations,' he said.
