A Kumasi-based Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO), Bright Generation Community Foundation has presented about 3,000 pair of shoes to children of some selected deprived schools in the Asunafo North municipality.
The Executive Director of Bright Generation Community Foundation, Ms. Bernice Dapaah has disclosed that the NGO was into educational projects for school children and women empowerment.
The group will also donate other teaching and learning materials such as computers, text books, school uniforms and exercise books among others, that would be done every six months for four years.
According to Ms. Dapaah, the shoes were donated by Tom Shoes, and Asunafo North was selected because it was considered as one of the deprived municipalities in the country.
The Member of Parliament for the area, Robert Sarfo-Mensah who was instrumental in attracting the NGO to the municipality commended Bright Generation Community Foundation for granting his request to assist school children of his constituency.
He encouraged the children to take inspiration from the gesture, and take their studies seriously and be obedient to their teachers and parents to be prominent personalities in the future.
Mr. Robert Sarfo-Mensah donated sets of jerseys and footballs to the school, and called on the teachers to help unearth the hidden talents of the children, and nurture them well, both in sports and academics.
He also appealed to landlords of the community to assist the teachers with the provision of accommodation to help improve effective teaching and learning in the school.
Other beneficiary schools included Betwie Nyankomago Primary School, Abebrese L/A Primary and JHS, Kwadwo Addaekrom L/A Primary and JHS, Abogyae L/A Primary and JHS and Asumura L/A Primary and JHS.
