MTN Ghana, a leading telecommunications service provider in Ghana, is supporting Ningo Senior High School as part of its “21Days Yello Care” project.
The MTN staff is putting up an e-library in the school under the project dubbed: “Investing in Education for All.”
Nana Adjei Perby, Education Portfolio Adviser of MTN Ghana Foundation, told Ghana News Agency (GNA) that the project started on Thursday and it is expected to be completed by June 21.
“As you can see, some of us are carrying cements and others are helping in mixing the mortar and the laying of blocks,” he added.
Nana Adjei said the e-library would contain about 40,000 books under various subjects.
He said other members of the team would be designing and sewing school bags from old banners and flexi materials of MTN for school children across the three business districts.
He said due to the fact that the school’s ICT laboratory is nothing good to write home about, introducing the e-library is going to make good impact on the students.
Mr Edmond Botchway, Headmaster of the school, expressed gratitude to MTN for the support to the school.
“The e-library has come at the right time and it is going to help students do their assignment and research and it is also going to help teachers integrate their lessons using the information they will get from the e-library into the classroom,” he said.
He said the school with a population of 1320 students would benefit highly from the e-library because the school has outdated computers.
