It’s widely perceived across the globe that the future of a country lies in kids or even the unborn babies, as such As I Grow, a non-governmental organization known for its commendable works in the rural areas of Ghana has urged parents to prioritize the creation of a conducive environment for their kids.
The organization is of the strong opinion that the creation of a conducive environment for our future leaders [children] can unlock their hidden potentials and also bring out the best in them both at school and their various homes.
Speaking with the media at donation exercise, undertaken by the organization at the Larteh Salvation Army Primary School in the Eastern region of Ghana, Ms. Opoku, a member of the organization encouraged school children to make the most out of the education they are currently receiving from their teachers even though “As I Grow” is always fighting to provide them with all the basic things they need at their various school to enhance the acquisition of knowledge.
Mr. Debrah Bekoe Isaac, Chief Executive Officer of the organization appealed to the government to prioritize the establishment of ICT labs, libraries and other basic facilities at the Junior high schools especially schools at the rural areas.
He, however, encouraged NGOs and other stakeholders in education to join their campaign in developing these kids for a better and brighter future.
Meanwhile in attendance of the colorful event were Mr. Agyei Obeng, a field team member, Mr. Osei Bonsie, member of the organization and Mr. Afrani Isaac, the transport officer of the organization.
