NYEP supports K’dua Islamic Education Unit
The management of the National Youth Employment Programme (NYEP) in the Region has donated 100 bags of cement to the Regional Islamic Education Unit.
The Unit, which was established in 1989, cannot boast of a befitting office to run its programmes, with its members more or less packed in a rented office.
In view of the challenging conditions of the Unit, the management of NYEP, apart from its core duties, considered it wise to donate the items to help start the construction of an office.
Presenting the items to the leadership of the Unit at a short, but impressive ceremony, here in Koforidua last Friday, the Regional Coordinator of the NYEP, Mr. Joshua Atta Mensah, said the issue of quality education bordered on many parameters, ranging from infrastructure to dedicated teachers among others.
He admitted that without a decent, safe and conducive learning environment for the children and their teachers, quality education would not be achieved.
It was to this end that, according to him, his outfit, as stakeholders, deemed it proper to contribute their widow’s mite towards a worthy cause.
He, however, called on the management of the Unit to put the items to good use, adding that his office would be more than willing to donate more items if they were used for the intended purposes.
Expressing his appreciation on behalf of the Unit, the Regional Manager of the Unit, Abubakari Inusah, promised the NYEP boss of putting the items to good use.
