CEO of Multimedia Group Major Kwesi Twum (rtd) and siblings built a new classroom block for New Ningo D.A. Primary B School at Ningo in the Greater-Accra Region of Ghana to honour the memory of their late mother Manye Nueki Carboo. The classroom infrastructure includes an ICT lab, restrooms, staff room, 2,500 water storage polytanks and a storeroom. Mrs. Samira Bawumia commissined the Manye Nueki Carboo Memorial JHS Block on thee birthday of the late Manye Nueki Carboo and unveiled a bust built in her honor.

It is worth noting that Manye Carboo did not even complete elementary school and yet lived an incredible life raising six children whom she provided opportunities to get the very best of education. Major Twum (rtd) noted that he and her siblings were dedicating  the junior high school block to their late mother in recognition of her life achievements especially, her love for the Ningo community and its development. Major Twum (rtd) remarked that Manye Nueki Carboo’s heart was in the school.

The project was significant in a number of ways. Some 17 odd years after the primary school building was commissioned by an NGO, it was never complemented with a junior high school block. Headteacher of New Ningo D.A. Primary B School Mrs. Patience Osei Poku explains that this meant students graduating Primary Class 6 had to look elsewhere for junior high education. Mrs. Osei Poku expressed gratitude to Major Twum and his siblings for helping to address this “major challenge” facing the school.  She noted that the new school infrastructure was going to help teachers monitor the development of students and would also serve the educational needs of surrounding communities.

Other notable witnesses of the commissioning included District Director of Education Ms. Matilda Quartey, parents of students and chiefs of Ningo and surrounding communities.
