WRITE FOR WORLD PRESENTS SEVENTY(70) BAGS OF CEMENT FOR COMPLETION OF AVETAKPO SCHOOL PROJECT
A team from Write for World, led by its co-founder, Jonas Mabe, on Sunday, December 12, 2021, made a presentation of seventy(70) bags of cement to the Avetakpo community, in the Ho-West District of Ghana, for the completion of an abandoned school project that had halted for the past decade due to financial constraints.
The presentation was made through the community’s contact person, Mr. Michael Tornyi, in the presence of the assembly member and other key stakeholders.
The co-founder of Write for World, who doubled as the Project Coordinator, Mr. Jonas Mabe, in a brief speech disclosed that the day was a special one as it also marked the second anniversary of the existence of the organisation.
Mr. Mabe said since notice was served the organisation, through the contact person, Mr. Michael Tornyi, about the age-long plight of the settler community which had to do with the lack of an educational facility, management had been relentless in its efforts to assist the children of the community in particular, by ensuring that the halted school project was completed for the children to have access to education once again.
“It was as a result of the search for assistance on behalf of the community that got the attention of the United States Embassy in Accra to come to our aid, through the US Ambassador’s Special Self Help Program,” he said.
He said, “the presentation of the cement is the beginning of a stronger commitment by the US government and Write for World to ensure that the abandoned school project in the community is completed in real time, as the US Ambassadors Special Self-Help Program has provided the necessary funding to ensure its completion.”
The Director in Charge of Educational Affairs of Write for World, Mad. Ellen Amevor, admonished the stakeholders of the community to ensure that the community was heavily involved in the completion works and made sure that materials that would be provided were used for its intended purposes and not diverted to individual homes.
The Avetakpo community through its contact person, Mr. Michael Tornyi expressed how elated the community was and thanked the team for the timely intervention on their behalf, and the US Ambassador to Ghana for the humanitarian mission. He assured the team of the community’s maximum cooperation to ensure that their dream of seeing their children have formal education was met.
