A civil society organisation Project Kwahu in collaboration with the Okwahuman United of North America has donated reading materials running into thousands of Ghana cedis to the Nkawkaw municipal Library.
This follows an appeal made by the librarian for assistance to restock the facility which was put up during the erstwhile Kufuor era by the former mp Seth Adjei Baah but has since seen little maintenance.
The donated books, which are on various disciplines like the social sciences, banking, law, accounting, economics, ICT, women issues, children’s books etc were presented to the Municipal Coordinating Director Mr. Kenneth Osman at a colorful event last Thursday at the municipal assembly office. The coordinator was full of praise for the two organisations and appealed to well meaning Kwahu natives and businesses to invest in the education sector since it is the key to development.
The books were ceremonially handed over to the Kwahu West Director of Education Mrs. Barichisu Adams under who’s direct watch the education of the municipality falls. Mrs. Adams was equally elated and asked for more collaborative efforts between the government and private organisations like Project Kwahu and the Okwawuman United of North America in promoting education. She further promised to ensure the books are put to good use.
Representatives of PROJECT KWAHU and Okwahuman United in North America gave the assurance that it would continue to assist in the education and other sectors of Kwahu, adding they have plans to organise a SPELLING COMPETITION for schools in the Nkawkaw metro and Kwahu areas to inculcate the habit of reading and learning in students.
A rep of the municipal Librarian, Patrick, thanked the donors for the kind gesture and appealed for computers and accessories for the libraries ICT lab which is under utilised due to lack of accessories.
