Broll Ghana, Ghana’s foremost property services company, has donated a set of practical learning materials and other useful items to support the Vocational Skills Department of the Akropong School for the Blind in the Eastern Region.
Presenting the items, Aba Asante-Koranchie, Head of Corporate and Real Estate Services at Broll Ghana, said the gesture forms part of the company’s corporate social responsibility initiatives in support of national development.
She said Broll Ghana is committed to its mission of creating opportunities for the less-privileged in society.
She added that the company will continue to assist the institution in diverse ways to ensure that more physically challenged people acquire vocational skills to enable them earn a decent living.
Headmistress of the school, Mahela Narh, commended Broll Ghana for the gesture, and called on other corporate organizations to pay more attention to educational institutions that train children with special needs.
She said the provision of well-equipped vocational centres for physically challenged children will enable them to become productive citizens and not a burden on society.
Broll Ghana has carried out several CSR projects.
In October 2019, the company presented an award package to the 2019 Best Graduating Student, BSc in Real Estate from the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, KNUST, Ishmael Ankapong Okyere.
The company has for some years now awarded packages for the annual Best Graduating Student in Real Estate from the KNUST, as part of its corporate social responsibility projects to promote academic excellence, and to encourage students of the faculty to pursue professions within the built environment.
As part of the package, the awardee was given the opportunity to undertake his one-year mandatory National Service with Broll Ghana, to enable him obtain practical experience in the Ghanaian real estate property services industry.
