The pupils and staff of Adaklu Salvation Army primary and Himankrom Methodist School both in the Volta and Western Regions respectively as part of ?activities ?marking their back to school programme, welcomed the management and staff of Airtel Ghana to their schools.
Airtel during the visit presented to both schools Airtel branded school bags, T-shirts, and teaching and learning materials to support the school and to boost the pupils? moral for this term.
Airtel Ghana has taken special interest in these schools for some time now. Adaklu Primary was part of the beneficiaries of Airtel Touching Lives season 2, where Airtel renovated and furnished their pre-school and also built for them a modern playground.? Himankrom Methodist Primary on the other hand was adopted by Airtel in 2010 as part of the company’s School Adoption Programme. Airtel Ghana continues to assist these schools to help raise the standard of education so that they are better placed to compete more effectively with their fellow pupils in the more endowed schools.
In addressing the pupils, the manager of corporate social responsibility of Airtel Ghana Maame Dufie Cudjoe said, the company believes in education and its pivotal role in developing a nation and further advised the kids to be conscious of their potential as future leaders.
The chief of the town, Togbe Gabi III in his remarks commended Airtel Ghana for its support in touching the lives of the pupils and teachers of Adaklu Salvation Army School and encouraged the pupils of the school to take advantage of the support Airtel Ghana has given to them.
Both head teachers, Madam Mary Dzakpoh and Mr. Kingsford Henaku of Adaklu and Himankrom respectively, were very grateful for the continuous support Airtel has been giving their schools but like the proverbial Oliver Twist story, they asked for more by calling on other corporate institutions to emulate Airtel Ghana?s generosity.
