The Rotary Club of Accra, Spintex has initiated a fundraising activity aimed at constructing an ultra-modern Kindergarten classroom block, a library and an ICT laboratory for the Old Lashibi TMA School at Lashibi, Tema.
The move, according to the President of the Rotary Club, Spintex, Accra , Jennifer D Brock is to create a better learning environment for the children in the community, and by extension shape their future. The proposed block will replace a dilapidated wooden structure that currently hosts the pupils.
Speaking at the fundraising launch in Accra, Mrs Brock called on all well- meaning citizens and corporate organizations in the Lashibi- Tema community and beyond to support the club’s initiative.
She said the fundraising launch is the first step towards raising an amount of $120,000 to construct the Kindergarten block which will house the library and an ICT Centre .
The Rotary Club of Accra Spintex has adopted this school and has already refurbished and stocked up its existing library which also serves as a staff common room.
“Our goal is to strengthen the capacity of communities to support basic education and literacy, reduce gender disparity in education and increase adult literacy,’’ she said noting that the club is confident the project will be executed within two years.
The Head-Teacher of the school, Madam Getrude Owusu expressed her excitement and gratitude to the Rotary Club saying that the club’s kind gesture is well embraced. She noted that seeing the design of the KG block, library and ICT Centre is heartwarming and very inspiring.
