The beneficiary communities included Adzeankyewodanmu, Kwabaa and Krofofrom.

He said the uniforms were purchased by Rev. David Brister, a minister of the Assemblies of God Church now on further studies in the United States of American.

Receiving the uniforms, Mr. Edward Tawiah Amprofi, the Acting District Chief Executive (DCE) thanked the sponsors for assisting over 90 school children who previously did not have school uniforms. He appealed to NGOs and other benevolent organisations to adopt some communities and assist them to improve on their infrastructural development.
