Prof. Quarm noted that “it has been my wish always to help education to move forward as a writer and a publisher.”

He said that one of his corporate social responsibilities is to help some deprived areas to develop, “for ‘Adaekese’ for an area I come from, I have to pay homage.

“So when I came I also decided to give books worth GHC150,000 to support education within Amansie West District,” Prof. Quarm said.

He stated that one of the biggest challenges in the district is education, which requires quick attention.

He pointed out that much like the government, parents are unable to solve every issue, therefore Prof. Quarm’s support came at the right time and will have a significant impact.

He stated that the District Directorate of Education will receive the books and distribute them to the neediest schools.

In order for them to grow up to be responsible adults, Nana Appiah also urged kids in the various villages to focus on their education.
