The executive director of the GNPC Foundation, Dr. Dominic Eduah, yesterday handed over a new 6-unit classroom block to sekondi college in the western region of Ghana.
At the ceremony, Dr. Dominic noted that the facility, like many others being funded by his outfit, is a major investment in Ghanaian youth and the future of our young ones. He said that “this is not a cosmetic gesture to tick off on our CSR to-do list. It is an intervention that seeks to improve teaching and learning and thus, empower the next generation.”
He encouraged the school authority of sekondi college to ensure the proper maintenance culture of the facility for it to last longer in the region and serve its purpose.
The headmistress of the school Mrs. Guddy Abena Ampomah Kermah, thank the GNPC foundation and recounted that the school is in a dire need of infrastructure support and hence appreciate GNPC’s decision to come to their aid. She made an assurance that the facility will be put to its intended use and under proper care.
Abdul Mumin Issah, the MCE of sekondi -Takoradi Metropolitan Assembly (STMA), who witnessed the handing over of the school block, expressed his satisfaction and thank GNPC Foundation developmental efforts that have impacted not this Sekondi but also every area of the country. “Your work is known in many parts of the country and we applaud your commitment to uplift individuals and societies by ensuring the windfall if Ghana’s oil business reaches all,” he said.
The executive director with his team used the event to check on another ongoing project at the school, a 24-seater sanitary facility funded by the foundation.
