Rotaract Osu RE donates Textbooks to Agona Nantifa and Tawora Basic Schools
The Rotaract Club of Accra-Osu RE in collaboration with ATCOG International and Leading Stars Network (both NGO’s in Accra) has donated over 2,500 textbooks and stationary materials, clothing and toothbrushes as well as toothpastes to the Tawora ADA primary school and the Agona Nantifa Primary and Junior High Schools in the Central Region of Ghana. The club made this donation on 9th of February, 2019.
This joint project dubbed “READ RIGHT” forms part of Community Development Project initiative. The purpose of this donation was to improve reading capability of the students at the basic level of education which will make it easy for them reach tertiary levels and even higher standards.
Presenting the Textbooks and other items to the school, the President of Accra-Osu RE Rotaract club who doubles as Founder of ATCOG International, Dr. Harold Nii-Aponsah explained that every human being has a need, very often in gratifying our needs we forget the needs of others.
Let us be mindful of the needs of others and particularly urged the youth to do very much to exemplify this act of kindness and commonly come together to build the nation. He further added that a generation that reads is one that leads. He added that Let us strive for a brighter and better future for all.
Dr. Harold NII-APONSAH, a dentist by profession also did a dental talk and demonstration on how to take care of the teeth to both students and teachers of the two schools and urged them to take care of their teeth as it is the gateway to their body and health.
Mr Godfred Asare Oppong, the headmaster of Agona Nantifa ADA School stated that, “He was very thankful with the kind gesture done by the various groups and stated that their mini-libraries were going to be stocked as a result of these books”
He also expressed how elated the authorities of the school are and appealed to other benevolent societies and public-spirited individuals to make similar donations to help improve education within the township.
He added that the donation was timely and would help affect the lives of the students, children and the community as a whole by ensuring the children stay in school.
The Rotaract President of the club said that the club will continue to assist the youth and help them make useful contributions for the development of society, he said he will ensure that the club will partner with other clubs to make a bigger donation of a library block to the primary school of Agona Nantifa and hoped that other clubs can collaborate to help make that project successful in future.
Mr Oppong and teachers of the AGONA NANTIFA and TAWORA D/A Primary school after receiving the textbooks and items expressed gratitude to the Rotaract Club of Accra Osu-RE and noted that the books, clothes and toothbrush and toothpastes would be used for its rightful purpose.
