The Tema Country Rotary Club has donated 2,800 assorted textbooks to Paul Asare Ansah, former Ghana Ports and Harbours Authority (GPHA) Director, to support his ‘One Family, Two Graduates’ agenda for each household in the Asuogyaman District, Eastern Region.
The books, in addition to some 1,000 the GPHA had given to the former Director would be distributed to all seven second-cycle schools in the district.
Apeguso Senior High School (SHS), Apegwa SHS, Boso SHS, Akosombo International School, Learning Field SHS, Akuamuman SHS and Anum Presby SHS are to benefit from the educational support, championed by the former Director.
Nii Quaye Amasah, former Tema Country Rotary President, who presented the textbooks to Mr Ansah at the Tema Rotary Club Books Depot, explained that the Rotary Club is an international non-partisan non-governmental organisation (NGO) that supports laudable individual and community agenda.
“Therefore, when Mr Paul Ansah wrote to us [Rotary Club] in Accra for some SHS textbooks to support his ‘One Family, Two Graduates’ agenda in his constituency, we welcomed it, and, today, I am here, on behalf of Rotary Club to present 2,800 assorted SHS textbooks to our recipient to champion his vision,” Mr Amasah explained.
In his remarks, Paul Asare Ansah said his vision was that in ten years, each household in his constituency must boast of two graduates, “and the agenda began last year with various supports I am providing for the JHS to SHS, and, hopefully, extend it to the tertiary.”
He said leadership was about one’s ability to lobby for external support to augment what he or she can do to better the living condition of the people who need to be served.
Given this, he said he would work hard to stand-in the gap for especially the less-privileged by doing everything within his ability to keep his vision kindled.
He thanked Rotary Club and GPHA for the support.
Each beneficiary school delegated a representative to accompany Mr Ansah to the Tema Rotary Club Books Depot, and they expressed immense gratitude to Mr Paul Ansah for his unabated support for the schools in the Asuogyaman District.
