By Caroline Pomeyie, GNAAccra, March 17, GNA – The Rotary Club of Accra, Spintex in partnership with the Ghanaian Engineers and Architects Association of America, has cut the sod for the construction of Information, Communication and Technology Laboratory at the Old Lashibi Basic School.
The construction, which also includes a kindergarten and Library block is expected to be completed within two years.
Mrs Jennifer Brocke, President of the Rotary Club of Accra Spintex, said the association based in the United States has committed a minimum of GH? 40,000.00 in cash and also technical support to this project.
She commended Mr Stanley Owusu, Managing Director of Royal Estates Limited, who is also a club member for donating an undisclosed amount of money and pledged to provide solid blocks to help the club commence the construction.
“A key partner is Rotary Club of Accra South, our parent club. Our heartfelt gratitude goes to Forthman and Cross who are supporting with 200 bags of cement and 1,000 solid blocks which have duly been delivered to site” she added.
Mrs Brocke called for total support from all those “who share in this dream to providing a decent classroom block for the kindergarten as well as ICT centre and library, support the club financially and materially”.
Mrs Margaret Frempong-Kore, the Tema Metro Director of Education, said that the project would undoubtedly cement the goodwill and a better friendship with not just the beneficiary school and communities but Tema Metro Directorate of Education, Ghana Education Service and to the entire nation.
She commend: “Rotary Club of Accra-Spintex has amply demonstrated that the attainment of quality education in our nation today is no longer the sole responsibility of the central government or that of the parents alone. I am particularly happy about the project.”
She gave the club’s commitment of the teachers, the School Management Committee, and Parents and Teachers Association of the Old Lashibi Basic School for the necessary support.
