Chiefs and people of the Nhyiaeso community in the Asante Akyem North Municipality of the Ashanti region say they can’t wait to use a new 6 unit classroom block which is wing constructed for them by the MTN Foundation.
Nana Owusu Akyiaw Brempong, Regent of Nhyiaeso who made this comment on behalf of the people of the area could not hide his gratitude to the MTN Foundation while it is even yet to be completed.
He therefore urged the community to support the contractor working on the project in order to enhance the speed of work since it is scheduled to open in for fresh academic intake.
Nana Akyiaw Brempong made the comments when some officials from the MTN Foundation joined senior officers of MTN in the region to inspect the project last Friday.
The school block when completed is expected to enhance admission of hundreds of pupils in and around Nhyiaeso.
Mobile Telecomunication Giants MTN which is funding the project through it social responsibility outfit MTN Foundation, is spending GH 478,000.
The Foundation will also furnish the classrooms to enhance academic work.
Speaking during the tour of the site on Friday, Sam Koranteng, MTN Corporate Services Executive and a Director at the Foundation commended the chiefs and people of the town as well as the school’s administration for the support they have offered to the contractor.
He hoped upon completion of the project all children who are of school going age in Nhyiaeso as well as the other adjoining communities will have a better atmosphere to access quality education.
”MTN Foundation is glad to be putting up this educational infrastructure for this community and our aim is to give these kids a better environment to study in even as they grow”, Mr Koranteng noted.
The Corporate Services Executive asked the school authorities to ensure they maintain the school structure when completed and handed over to them.
This, he noted will urge the company to expend further assistance to them when need be.
He said, ‘quality education could only be achieved when commensurate teaching and learning environments are created for children to study’.
The Asante Akyem North District Director of Education Ernest Kwadwo Afari praised MTN for showing support to the Nhyiaeso community.
He said the facilities at the school left much to be desired, adding that the provision of the 6-unit infrastructure will boost learning and teaching at the deprived community school.
