AngloGold Ashanti Iduapriem Mine on Tuesday donated assorted teaching and learning materials worth ¢53,000 to Benso M/A Basic School.
This is in line with its commitment to improving access to quality basic education in the Tarkwa Nsuaem Municipality.
The donation was done in collaboration with Nana Abena Kunadjoa II, the Queen Mother of Wassa Fiase Traditional Area and Founder of the Nana Abena Kunadjoa II Foundation.
The teaching and learning materials included 3,000 exercise books, 750 notebooks, and 800 approved textbooks covering all the subject areas.
Presenting the items on behalf of the Mine, Ag. Senior Manager – Sustainability, Enoch Osei, noted the pivotal role education plays in the growth and progress of every society.
He reaffirmed the Mine’s commitment to ensuring inclusive and equitable quality education and promotion of lifelong learning opportunities for all in line with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG 4).
“This donation shows Iduapriem Mine’s commitment to ensuring that students in our catchment area are supported at every stage of the academic ladder to realise their potential and we are very hopeful that these items will contribute to the improvement of the school’s academic performance,” he said.
Receiving the items, the Headmaster for Benso M/A Basic School, Peter Kofi Amankrah, expressed gratitude to Iduapriem Mine and Nana Abena Kunadjoa II Foundation for the kind gesture.
He was hopeful the teaching and learning materials would go a long way to alleviate the plight of teachers and pupils in the school and contribute to improved academic performance.
“This donation would really help the school and help increase enrolment, as teachers would no longer have to improvise to help pupils understand lessons due to inadequate learning materials,” said Mr Amankrah.
“This situation affected the quality of education and resulted in a general lack of interest in the school by parents and students.”
On her part, the Queen Mother of Wassa Fiase Traditional Area, Nana Abena Kunadjoa II, commended the Mine for its continuous support in improving the quality of education in its host communities and urged the headmaster of the school to take good care of the learning materials and use them for the intended purpose.
