The Ghana National Petroleum Corporation (GNPC) has handed over a six-unit classroom block to the Damongo Presbyterian Primary School and the Larabanga Islamic Primary School, respectively, in the West Gonja Municipality of the Savannah Region.

Additionally, 200 pieces of furniture, comprising of desks and chairs, were presented to each school.

Speaking at a brief handing over ceremony in Damongo, Executive Director of the GNPC Foundation, Dr. Dominic Kwesi Eduah, noted that the project, which falls under the corporation’s social responsibility would serve to complement government’s efforts which are aimed at increasing basic school enrolments without sacrificing on the quality of education offered.

He also revealed that since 2018, the GNPC, through its Foundation, has implemented 270 projects across the country, adding that, it aims at implementing some 570 projects in the medium term.

“As part of the Foundation’s corporate responsibilities, it offers support in three core areas including education and training, economic empowerment, environment, and the provision of social amenities,” he explained.

Dr. Eduah charged the authorities in both schools to exercise proper maintenance of the respective projects.

The Savannah Regional minister, Saeed Muhazu Jibril, thanked GNPC for its consistent support, saying the interventions would also go a long way in creating a conducive learning environment for school-goers within the beneficiary communities.

He appealed for more support from GNPC, especially, in the areas of education and sanitation, which, he said, would aid the development of the municipality.

The minister gave the assurance that the school’s authorities would ensure the proper use and maintenance of the structures to prolong their lifespan.

The Manager of the Presbyterian Schools in Damongo, Faustina Awuni, thanked GNPC and assured that the facility would be put into proper care.

Some parents within the communities also expressed gratitude to the corporation for the facilities and pledged to collaborate with the school authorities to maintain them.
