A group of philanthropists, made up of black entrepreneurs based in the United States (US), has donated 18 laptops, a power station, a projector and screen, worth more than GH¢38,000 to the Liberty Avenue Cluster of Schools.

The items, which were presented to the school’s information and communications technology (ICT) centre Tuesday January 14, were in response to an appeal made by the school’s ICT teachers after members of the group donated books to the school in October last year.

Sponsored by the Chief Executive Officer of Mass Mutual and owner of multiple Pizza Hut Franchises, Mr Isoke Haris, and his daughter, Ms Taryn Haris; the computers are expected to help over 1,200 students, including Liberty Avenue ‘1’ Primary School, Liberty Avenue ‘2’ Junior High School, Liberty ‘3’ Primary School as well as Mantse Tackie 1 & 2 Primary School in the learning and teaching of ICT in the school.

Donation

The items were handed over by a member of the group, Ms Matilda Arhin, who is also the President of the Ghana International Chamber of Commerce (GHICC) in Atlanta, Georgia in the US.

Ms Arhin explained that they were encouraged by the Year of Return initiative when they visited Ghana, stating that there was the need for Ghanaians in the diaspora to provide support for students across the country.

“The future of Ghanaian children is very important and we need to support them. These children we see today belong to our country Ghana and we must make their education needs a priority,” she added.

She also revealed that subsequently in the year, another member of the group, Ms Shavon Roman, would be presenting 10 more computers to the school.

Commendation

The Headmistress of Liberty Avenue ‘2’ JHS, Mrs Beatrice Akumiah, commended the group for its benevolent gesture in responding swiftly to the school’s call to have the school’s ICT centre stocked with computers.

She promised the group that the school would use the computers efficiently to facilitate the teaching and learning of ICT.

For his part, an ICT tutor at the Liberty Avenue ‘2’ JHS, Mr Ishmael Teye Gbenartey, who described the presentation as a “timely intervention”, said it was necessary because the projectors would make teaching easier.

He added that “this would help us show more videos and build the confidence of students in the subject even beyond the Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE).”
