Zain Communications Ghana has presented six computers and cash prizes to the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) and four students for their participation in the on-going Zain Africa Challenge (ZAC).
A statement released in Accra on Thursday said the presentation
comprised of six computers worth US$5,000 for the university and US$1,000 to each of the participating students in the quiz competition. Each of their coaches and liaisons had US$500 while an additional US$1,000 was a participation reward.
Mr Philip Sowah, Country Director of Zain, presented the computers
to Professor Kwesi Adarkwa, Vice Chancellor of KNUST and the cheques to the students and coaches in Kumasi.
KNUST was one of the teams which represented Ghana at the Zain Africa Challenge in Nairobi, Kenya.
Mr Sowah said Zain remained deeply committed to their corporate social responsibilities in Ghana, adding that the Zain Africa Challenge was its biggest investment in education.
“I am pleased that the students of Ghana are benefiting intellectually
as well as financially from the programme,” he said.
He also noted that Zain was proud to be associated with the Otumfuo celebrations as that was of great cultural significance to the Ashantis and the people of Ghana.
