The project, which began some years ago under the company’s School Adoption Programme, is expected to make quality education accessible to deprived communities across the country.
The library has been furnished with reading materials and 20 desk top computers to create an enabling environment for ICT learning.
Mrs Hannah Agbozo, Legal and Corporate Affairs Director, Airtel Ghana expressed appreciation to the community leadership, municipal and district assemblies for collaborating with the company to make the project a success.
She said as part of their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), the company embarked on the initiative to help build the potentials of the students.
“We at Airtel believe in showing our commitment and giving back to society to build and explore the potentials of the youth,” she said.
Mrs Agbozo added that with Airtel’s Evolve with STEM initiative, which seeks to promote the study of Science, Technology, and Engineering Mathematics (STEM) in basic schools across the country they are gradually helping to build the potentials of young ones to become good leaders.
She pledged that Airtel would continue to work with all the collaborating partners to enable them achieve what is possible and to maintain the facility.
Mrs Rita Odoley Sowah, Municipal Chief Executive, expressed gratitude to Airtel Ghana for the support to enhance ICT learning.
She urged the students to cultivate the habit of reading to broaden their knowledge and make good use of the facility for the intended purpose.
Mrs Bernice Aduo Adde, Director of Education, also encouraged teachers of the schools to make sure the pupils get the best out of the facility to produce good and quality students for the development of the nation.
She appealed to teachers to do their part by working hard to augment efforts made by institutions who support the schools to ensure they have quality facilities to enhance learning.
Airtel with its STEM initiative, has been able to reach out to Greater Accra, Volta, Upper East and the Western regions to ensure students all over the country benefit from the initiative.
