Karpowership Ghana Limited has provided a fully furnished ultra-modern computer laboratory for Manhean Anglican Junior High School in Tema.
The laboratory comprises of 31 complete computer sets, 31 desks, and everything needed to make a modern computer laboratory functional.
Prior to this intervention, the school had no computers and students had to be taken to near-by schools for practical ICT lessons.
Speaking at the inauguration of the computer lab, Country Manager of Karpowership Ghana Volkan Buyukbicer said the move is fully aligned with Karpowership’s Corporate Social Responsibility standpoint to support education and raise literacy levels in communities which it is operating in.
“The speedy growth in technology has made acquiring knowledge in the sector very necessary in our day to day lives,” he said.
“It has become very important for every individual to be up-to-date in the use of computers, and this is seen in the inclusion of ICT in the curricula of every school. That is why we embraced the opportunity to attend to this important need of Manhean Anglican JHS.”
Headmistress of Manhean Anglican JHS Marian Cobblah expressed gratitude to Karpowership for its continuous support.
“This donation is sure to boost students’ concentration in class and enhance teachers’ efficiency in the teaching of ICT. We are very delighted to have benefitted from this initiative,” she said.
The Tema Metropolitan Executive, Isaac Ashai Odamtten, also lauded Karpowership for supporting education in the Tema Manhean community and envisaged a long-term relationship with the company.
“The record Karpowership has set in adopting this computer lab is going to have far reaching benefits,” he said.
“You have demonstrated strongly that there is power in friendship and I want this friendship to grow into partnership. The Tema Metropolitan Assembly assures you of a lasting support so together we can brighten the Tema Metropolitan Education system.”
This donation is one of the many CSR activities Karpowership Ghana Co. Ltd has carried out since 2015.
The education support program was initiated with the arrival of Karadeniz Powership Ayşegül Sultan to Tema, Ghana, where Karpowership distributed more than 200 school bags to Manhean Anglican C Primary School.
Last month, the company donated learning materials which included back packs, stationery and other learning materials to 2000 students at the Manhean Anglican Cluster of Schools.
They also presented a one-year bursary to 100 needy but brilliant students at Manhean Presbyterian Primary School and Manhean TMA Primary and JHS.
