The Assemblyman for the Chache Electoral Area in the Bole District, Hon. Alim Kuusaari Ebong, has donated for the second time a brand new desktop computer valued at GHS 600.00 to Chache D/A primary school to enhance teaching and learning.
He had earlier on this year donated same computer to the Jentige D/A primary school.
The donation is to help in the practical education of the pupils in Information and Communication Technology (ICT) to contribute to the technological revolution of the country.
The Unit Committee Secretary, Mr Jamani Lansani and Onputey Belinkaa who presented the computer on behalf of the Assemblyman, urged the pupils to take their computer studies seriously.
They said the world was revolving around digital literacy and it was important to support pupils with logistics to study ICT very well to contribute to the national digitalisation agenda.
They advised the pupils to focus on the positive aspects of the internet and use it innovatively to address issues facing their communities.
The Unit Committee Secretary, commended the Assemblyman for his support to bring developmental changes in rural communities and called on parents to step up their roles in training their children.
The head of the school, who received the computer, said ICT education had been a challenge in the school as pupils were only taken through the theories without the practical.
He commended the Assemblyman for the gesture and appealed to other NGOs, churches, corporate institutions and philanthropists to support the school to improve teaching and learning.
The Assemblyman who is currently out of the country in South Africa for further studies in an interview with Yagbon News said that his motivation behind the project is to support the growth of technology and IT in his area to meet the national standard of education and digitalization.
He added that it is also to prevent the abstract teaching of the subject I.C.T which I personally endured untill senior high school.
According to him he wants the children who live in the village where he is from and stay from time to time know they can rise to the level of those in the towns and cities.
The Assemblyman has promised to offer desktop computers to all schools within his Electoral Area.
He specifically expressed appreciation to Raphael Aidoo, Ala Adjetey and Edmund Larbi Afari for partnering with him so that the child in the village school will get the opportunity to touch and feel what a computer is and how it looks.
Hon. Kuusari Ebong, appealed to other NGO’s to support him in his digitization drive in his Electoral Area.
