This was made known by Mrs Thelma Odonkor, Founder of Thelma Odonkor Foundation in an interview with Ghana News Agency in Accra.
She said the donation forms part of the Foundation’s objective of supporting the less-privileged in the society as well as developing pupils’ interest in reading.
Mrs Odonkor said in order to develop the interest of the beneficiary students in patronising the library, some of the books that were acquired were written in Dagbani, a local dialect in the area.
She said the Foundation would also be sponsoring the training of the Librarian in Accra in order to upgrade his or her knowledge and to be able to manage the library well.
She gave the assurance that the foundation would also be catering for the education of the needy but brilliant children, by paying their fees, providing them with uniforms, books and other educational materials.
“We will also be organising programmes in the various schools to educate pupils on issues of sanitation, personal hygiene, ethics and teenage pregnancy, with the aim of helping to achieve the millennium development goal,” she said.
Mrs Odonkor advised students to adopt a good reading habit by visiting the library regularly and reading books that match their level.
