MTN Ghana Foundation in partnership with the Ministry of Communications, has donated an ultra-modern multipurpose library and robotic centre worth GHC770,000 to the Dansoman community in the Greater Accra region.
Situated at the Ebenezer Senior High School, the facility is aimed at improving the reading culture of the community as well as equip the youth in the community with knowledge and relevant skills.
The facility boasts of a 100-seater conventional library, a 20-seater ICT centre, a reception area, a storeroom, two offices, washrooms and a world-class Robotics training centre.
According to the Chief Executive Officer of MTN Ghana, Mr. Selorm Adadevoh, quality education is one of the three pillars of the Corporate Social Investment strategy of the MTN Foundation.
He said “One of our core mandates is to improve the quality of life of people through appropriate and sustainable interventions in communities where MTN operates. Simply put, we have a responsibility to the people of Dansoman and we are happy to support in this way,”
Mr. Adadevoh noted that as part of the MTN’s commitment to bringing ICT to the doorstep of many Ghanaians, the company will continue to invest in the digital economy of the country.
He admonished school authorities to make good use of the facility whilst encouraging them to be vigilant as well as practice good maintenance culture to serve more generations.
On her part, Minister for Communications and MP for the area, Madam Ursula Owusu-Ekuful, commended the good works of MTN Ghana Foundation and encouraged them to continue in their stead.
She also emphasized the importance of having an ultra-modern community library saying “This facility will go a long way to improve the literacy skills of the people of Dansoman. The library comes with internet provided by MTN and I am particularly grateful to them for coming to our aid. When we are given the right tools and the right skills our young people can compete and beat the best in the world.”
“That’s why I’m excited about this project. It’s abundantly clear from all the successes that our young people have chalked that we do not lack in talent or potential. What our young people need are the tools and the platforms to showcase what they can achieve with the very best in the world,” she added.
