The Ghana Grid Company Limited, GRIDCo, has refurbished the Asueyi Community Daycare and KG School in the Techiman North District of the Bono East Region, as part of activities to mark 15 years of its existence.
The project is valued at four hundred thousand Ghana Cedis (GHC400,000.00).
Handing over the facility, the CEO of GRIDCO, Ebenezer Essienyi, said the initiative forms part of its Corporate Social Responsibility with a focus on educational support for its operational areas.
The facility, costing GHC400,000, has a new play area, washrooms for boys and girls, mechanized borehole with improved water access, new tables and chairs, for teachers and pupils as well as a 40-inches coloured flat screen television.
Hitherto, the pupils attended classes in an old, dilapidated school block, which according to the school authorities was not only a death trap but impeded effective teaching and learning.
Because of the bad condition of the old school block, the Ghana News Agency (GNA) gathered from residents that the school children could not attend school during the rainy seasons.
Additionally, the company presented learning and teaching materials, including quantities of exercise books, pencils, erasers, as well as reading and stories books.
Speaking at a handing over ceremony held at Asueyi, a farming community, near Techiman, Engineer Ebenezer Kofi Essienyi, the Chief Executive Officer of GRIDCo said the gesture formed part of the company’s corporate social responsibility commitment that focused on educational support in its operational areas.
