UN Women’s Guild supports Anlo Education Trust Fund backposted on Fri, 03 Aug at 10:16
Anlo Education Trust Fund (AETF) has presented seven basic schools with laptops and exercise books at functions held in Anloga and Kodzi in the Volta Region.
The laptops were funded to the tune of GH₵7,600 by the Geneva based United Nations Women’s Guild (UNWG-Geneva) in support of AETF’s ICT for schools project.
The exercise books were made available through AETF’s efforts to support basic schools in deprived communities in the Anlo Traditional Area and as part of the Fund’s schools support programme, aimed at improving educational pursuit at Ave-Dakpa in the middle belt of Southern Volta, Akatsi, Agbozume and Dzodze; and the Coastal belt, stretching from Aflao, to Anyanui in the western part of Keta and towns on both sides of the Keta Lagoon.
Two deprived schools in Anloga capital of Anlo, benefitted from seven notebook (mini laptops) out of which Anseco Basic School received three with the E.P. Basic School receiving four.
A member of the AETF Board and Keta Municipal Chief Executive, Mr Sylvester Tornyeavah presented the laptops on behalf of the Trust.
He expressed dissatisfaction about the decline of education in the Municipality and urged pupils of the beneficiary schools to study hard in order to uplift the future development of Anlo and the nation at large.
Mr Tornyeavah said AETF was ready to assist all school children in the Municipality to attain the highest level of education.
Professor Victor Gadzekpo, Chairman of the Board of AETF, expressed gratitude to the UNWG for the support and urged the headmasters of both schools to ensure the security of the laptops.
Reverend Trinity Doe-Dartey, who represented the Municipal Director of Education, thanked the AETF for the kind gesture and advised the pupils not to see the laptops as play things but to put them to good use as intended by the donors.
On behalf of the two schools, Headmaster of E.P. Basic School, Mr Paul Schubert Torga thanked the UNWG and the AETF for the support.
He said “even though computers were loaded with a variety of children’s games, they were “not toys but tools to assist children to learn”.
He therefore pledged “not to keep the laptops locked up in drawers but to make them available to the pupils to be used for the intended purposes”.
At a related function, AETF presented 2,000 exercise books to schools in five deprived communities in the lagoon basin of Anlo including Atito Local Authority Basic, Alakple Roman Catholic Basic, Fiaxor AME Zion Basic, Kodzi E. P. Basic and Genui Local Authority Basic.
All the schools received 550 exercise books, whilst Fiaxor AME Zion had 300 exercise books.
