STORY: Kwame Asare Boadu, Asamang
A philanthropist and citizen of Asamang in the Afigya-Sekyere District of Ashanti, Mr Noah Nkrumah-Adasa, has donated assorted educational materials worth GH¢1,500 to the Asamang Adventist Preparatory School as part of his efforts to boost education in the community.
The items were given to Mr Nkrumah-Adasa by the Osaka Kong Rotary Club of Japan after he had made an appeal to the club for assistance to resource the school with learning materials which it lacked.
The items, which could be used by pupils from the kindergarten to the junior high school, included exercise books, drawing materials, rulers, pencils, pens, teachers’ and students’ note books, writing pads, crayons, erasers and learning aids.
The Agona Circuit Supervisor of the Ghana Education Service (GES), Mr Ernest Agyin Asare, who made the presentation on behalf of the donor, urged the school to take good care of the materials.
Mr Asare thanked the donor for the gesture and expressed the hope that the donation would inspire the school to perform better in examinations.
The Proprietor of the school, Pastor Aboagye Baffour, said the donation was one of the good things to happen to the school.
He gave the assurance that the materials would be fully utilised to promote teaching and learning in the school.
