Students of United Methodist Basic School at Anawoekope in the North Tongu District, at last, have an ICT lab for ICT illustrations.
The International Needs Ghana, who recently gave the school a completely prepared library has now given a cutting-edge ICT Lab to the school.
Opening the facility, the Manager for Education at International Needs Ghana, Rev. Isaac Quarcoo, commented that the guiding principle of the association is giving everybody, particularly students in the far-off regions, equivalent opportunities like their colleagues in the metropolitan regions for them to develop comprehensively.
“International Needs Ghana is happy to be with you on another happy occasion. About a year ago, we were here to commission a library we had set up for the school. I am happy that the school is making good use of the library,” Rev. Issac Quarcoo said.
Rev. Isaac Quacoo also said that the connection between International Needs Ghana and the school began quite a while back when the association built the school nearby to give quality training to the kids locally.
“Since then, we have contributed significantly to the development of the school in various ways. We put up all the school buildings on this compound,” Rev. Quacoo said.
He also said that the new educational plan for basic schools expected teachers and students to do a great deal of work which was the motivation behind the association’s need to give the school an ICT office.
“I am happy to announce that International Needs Ghana together with our development partners have provided this school with another new state-of-the-art computer lab. True to our core values as an organization, two of which are; nondiscrimination and equal opportunity, we are giving the children in this community the same opportunity that their colleagues in the cities have so they can also compete in the ICT field” he said.
To the guardians and inhabitants in the community, he pleaded “you contribute your quota by paying the utility bills so as to keep the lab running. While at it, we are also appealing to the District Director of Education to help make this computer lab the best in the district. On our part, International Needs Ghana will maintain the computers. If we all work together, we can achieve a lot for the school and the community,” Rev. Quacoo said.
The Volta Regional Director of the Methodist Education Unit applauded International Needs for the extraordinary work done throughout the long term in the North Tongu District and asked them to accomplish more.
Community members, teachers, and the students offered thanks to the association for their donation and vowed to effectively utilize the facility.
International Needs Ghana, supports about 5000 kids every year to access, proceed and finish Basic training.
In the North Tongu locale, International Needs Ghana supports four schools specifically; Kanuwloe D/A Basic School, Lasivenu D/A Basic School, Mepe Holy Christ School, and Anawoekope United Methodist Basic School.
Their child assistance program which works in four regions in Ghana tries to help kids in the regions of Education, Health, Life Skills, and Social Development as well as Spiritual development.
