GNPC Foundation commissioned a newly constructed 6-unit classroom block for Daboase Senior High Technical School in the Western Region. The foundation also provided complementary furniture to furnish the classrooms including 240 student desks, seven white boards, a set of seven teacher’s tables and chairs. The Chiefs and elders of Daboase supported the project by providing 103 acres of land for the project.
Executive Director of GNPC Foundation Dr. Dominic Eduah described the commissioning as symbolic of the foundation’s goal to continually impact lives. Dr. Duah said the foundation plans to impact more than 10 million lives in the next five years through social interventions in education and training, economic empowerment and environment and social amenities.
Dr. Eduah announced plans to provide the school with toilet facility and a borehole water system. He noted that the planned projects were conditional on the the proper maintenance of the donated classroom facility.
District Director of Education Ms. Christina Winful and Headmistress of Daboase Senior High Technical School Ms. Irene Apaw thanked the GNPC Foundation for the assistance. Ms. Ampaw said after the introduction of the free senior high school policy, enrollment boomed, but our older infrastructure was in a state of disrepair and did not have sufficient capacity to absorb the growing number of students.
Other witnesses at the comissioning included Mrs. Lubaabat Habib-Jawula (Head of Environment and Social Amenities), Nii Lante Cleland (Past Regional Director of Education for Western Region), Mrs. Aya Harrison (Assistant Headteacher).
