The donation of the books worth GH¢3,000 forms part of the Foundation’s mandate to help needy but brilliant students to access quality education.
The beneficiary schools are SIPL Basic School, D.A Basic School, Kakokrom Basic School, St. Martin’s Anglican Basic School and Otodum Basic School.
Donating the books, Founder and Leader of i-VickyMends Foundation Victoria Nana Amoh indicated that even though her main aim is to empower women and children, especially girls, the book project had to be factored into the whole scheme because it became necessary.
“About a month ago, we received a request from the Assembly Member of the area, Seth Boston Cudjoe, about some brilliant but needy students he has identified from the schools. As a native of the town, I didn’t hesitate to act on it to assist these young people to access quality education,” she said.
“As a foundation, assisting the underprivileged is our core mandate and irrespective of how the request is, we do well to respond to it,” Ms. Amoh added.
Receiving the books on behalf of the District Director of Education, Emmanuel Cudjoe expressed the directorate’s gratitude to the Foundation for the kind gesture and requested more to come.
“On behalf of the District Director of Education, we would like to express our sincerest gratitude to the Foundation for remembering these young ones and coming to their aid. This will go a long way to help them in their studies,” Mr. Cudjoe noted.
Circuit Supervisor for the District Lawrence Afossah expressed the District’s commitment to ensure the beneficiary students make good use of the exercise books and as well take their studies seriously.
