By GNA

Koase (B/A) July 18, GNA - NGO-Ghana IT Aid Group, an NGO based in Denmark, has provided 30 computers, a scanner and two printers worth 50 million cedis for the computer centre at Koase Secondary Technical School near Wenchi in Brong Ahafo.

Speaking at the inauguration of the items at the school at the weekend, Nana Osei-Asiamah, headmaster, thanked the group for the offer. He noted that the items would help keep the students, the teaching and non-teaching staff and the general public abreast with the times. The headmaster commended Mr. Patrick Buck, an out-going American peace corps volunteer, "who was very instrumental in setting up the center."

Nana Osei-Asiamah said the American volunteer also initiated donations totalling 20 million cedis from well-wishers in America for the completion of some projects in the school.

He called on the Government, GETFUND, NGOs, individuals, philanthropists and Wenchi District Assembly to help provide boreholes, more classrooms and bungalows in the school.

Nana Sarfo Gyan, Board Chairman of the School, who presided, called on the students to take their studies seriously and urged them and the staff to patronize and take good care of the computers.
