A Non Governmental Organization from the US, “The Five North Project” has reached out to schools and students in Buem with 38 brand new desktop computers and accessories.
The initiative was inspired by Mr. Kofi Adams, who is currently seeking the mandate of his party to represent the people of Buem in the next Parliament.
Two schools, Oseikrom D/A Basic School and Jasikan R/C Basic School received 18 and 20 computers and accessories respectively.
Mr. Victor Kutor, a headteacher who received the items on behalf of the schools expressed gratitude to the NGO for their generosity. He said the gesture will help pupils and students get hands on experience as much teaching and learning is concerned. He added the era of teaching and learning ICT in abstract will be over.
Parke-Davis Magyigbe, who represented Mr. Kofi Adams at the donation ceremony, assured the NGO of continuous collaboration towards helping many more schools in the Jasikan District. He also acknowledged the parliamentary hopeful, Mr. Kofi Adams for showing leadership and prayed for more support for the schools when he eventually emerges victorious in his parliamentary pursuit.
The leader of the delegation from The Five North Project Mr. Austin Barajas, admonished school management to ensure that the devices are maintained and well secured so that pupils and teachers could derive their full benefits.
