Chinese groups in Ghana on Saturday donated 10 sets of computers and accessories to the Demonstration School for the Deaf in Mampong, some 35 km north of the capital, Accra.
The donation was made on behalf of the Chinese Chamber of Commerce and Ghana Association of Chinese Society by their president Tang Hong to support the training of the students in ICT in the special school.
Aside from the donation, a nine-member Chinese medical team also visited the school to provide free physical screening to teachers, students and residents in the nearby communities.
“We hope that our gesture of friendship with communities such as we are doing today will add to the deepening friendship and relationship that exists between the two great countries,” Tang said.
A senior official of the Ghana Education Service in the area Anthony Koranteng Akwafo thanked the Chinese team for the gestures, saying the computers will support the training of the students in ICT so that they can integrate in the technological world to advance their knowledge.
The school was founded fifty years ago to educate deaf and deaf-blind children to become independent members in their communities. It now has 419 students in five departments, from kindergarten to vocational and technical school. Enditem
