Three thousand books estimated at about ten thousand Ghana-Cedis (GH¢ 10,000) have been donated by the Caring Volunteers Network (CAVNET) to students of the Wa Model M/A Primary, JHS in the Wa Municipality as well as the Guo D/A JHS in the Wa West District.

The books included text books for some core subjects, reference materials for research, dictionaries and story books.

The donation formed part of the group’s efforts of enhancing child literacy while developing the potential of children through reading.

The Executive Director of CAVNET Adil Issah expressed hope that the books would be put to good use by teachers and students of both schools.

Interacting with the media at Wa M/A Model Primary, he explained that after a visit to the school he realized that although the school had a library facility, most of the books were outdated or had inappropriate material for the children.

He therefore decided to donate the books to encourage the pupils to read wide and broaden the scope. The donation was supported by the African Library Project.

The Caring Volunteers Network (CAVNET) is a local based NGO operating in the Upper West Region to among other things help bring good health and development to the various communities.

The organisation also identifies brilliant but needy students to support their academic pursuits.

Headmistress of Wa M/A Model Primary and JHS, Hajia Azara Salifu

Receiving the books on behalf of the Headmistress of Wa M/A Model Primary and JHS, Hajia Azara Salifu who is a teacher was excited about the initiative.

She admitted that they had difficulty getting appropriate reading material for the pupils.

Hajia Salifu was optimistic that the books that had been donated would encourage the children to read more.

Students who were present at the short ceremony could not hide their exhilaration.

They promised to keep the books in good shape in order to benefit other students.
