Mamprugu Moagduri (N/E), Nov. 6, GNA - The 2018/2019 Batch of the National Executives of the National Service Personnel Association of Ghana (NASPA) led by the President, Twumasi Stephen have donated 100 dual desk furniture to schools in the Mamprugu Moagduri District of the North East Region.
The donation, which was given to schools in need in the district was to enhance teaching and learning in the schools.
The beneficiary schools are; Yagaba R/C Primary, Kuuba D/A Primary and Logri R/C Primary.
Presenting the items, Mr Twumasi said, personnel of the association served their nation through various ways in districts across the country and had become a norm to embark on such gestures to climax their exit from the scheme.
He said his predecessors carried out similar benevolent gestures that impacted on the lives of people in need and the country at large, "this gesture is to support education in Ghana and the Sustainable Development Goal 4 which talks about quality education."
This, Mr Twumasi said demonstrated their commitment not only to the one- year mandatory service to the nation, but to go the extra mile of providing the needed logistics to enhance teaching and learning activities as well as other social amenities in certain rural areas.
Mr. Mumuni Mbonwura Francis, the Deputy District Director of Education who received the furniture on behalf of the schools expressed gratitude to the NASPA executives and thanked them for considering the district.
He said due to the geographical location of the district, it was deprived of certain social amenities for which they could only fall on benevolent individuals and groups.
He said the district would judiciously use the furniture to ensure teaching and learning activities to improve in schools, which received their share, adding, "others will also receive theirs within the course of the week in order for them to also produce more doctors, politicians and teachers."
The NASPA National Executives are expected to embark on similar furniture donations in the Bono Region, Ashanti and Eastern Regions before the end of the week.GNA
