“So far, training for 28 science teachers in these selected schools has been completed and the distribution of the sets has begun in the Greater Accra Region with La Nkwantanang Cluster of Schools and Nima Cluster of Schools. The total cost of this project is GHC 126,060.00”. – Robert Kuzoe, Senior Manager for Sustainability and Social Impact, MTN Ghana Foundation
For his part, Mr. Caleb Fugal of Dext Technology said his company decided to partner with MTN to address the shortfall in the practical study of science.
He added that, the initiative would help nurture the interest in studying science courses. This he said, will also bridge the gap between the underprivileged institutions and the private schools.
“If really we want to transform the industrialized economy then we need to pay attention to science,” – Caleb Fugal
Theodora Abalo, who received the items on behalf of the Nima ‘1’ Basic School commended MTN Ghana for complementing the efforts of the Ghana Education Service in the field of education; while entreating other organizations to follow suit.
