The Acting Director of Strategy and Corporate Affairs of GHACEM, Mr. Solomon Ayiah, says the country’s leading cement producer will continue to forge partnerships to drive the infrastructural development of the country.
He said GHACEM was committed to partnering efforts by government and other public and private institutions to develop the country, in fulfillment of the company’s corporate social responsibility (CSR).
He, therefore, reminded institutions, especially health and educational set-ups in deprived communities, to take advantage of GHACEM’s cement foundation which supports infrastructural projects with free cement.
Mr. Ayiah said this in an interview, as he led a monitoring and evaluation team from GHACEM to tour some beneficiary project sites in the Central and Western regions.
The tour was to afford the team first-hand opportunity to assess progress of work on the projects which GHACEM has supported with bags of cement.
Other officials on the team included Mr. John Savage-Mensah, a P.R. Assistant of Ghacem.
Beneficiary project sites visited in the Central Region were the Methodist ‘B’ Primary and Kindergarten (KG) at Saltpond, Ntranoa Anglican M/A Basic School at Elmina, Mensah Sarbah Basic ‘B’ KG and the University Practice School, both in Cape Coast.
In the Western Region, the team visited projects such as the Sacred Heart Preparatory School at Beposo, Prophet Nkansah M/A Primary School at Sekondi, Salem Presbyterian Academy at Takoradi and St. Andrews Anglican Complex School at Sekondi.
At each stop, the team interacted with caretakers and supervisors of the projects, who apprised them with progress information and challenges.
Mr. Solomon Ayiah explained that GHACEM, by its corporate social responsibility (CSR) through its Cement Foundation, donated various bags of cement to support the various projects.
He indicated that by the tours, GHACEM was able to ensure that every cement donation was accounted for.
The tour also afforded GHACEM the opportunity to ascertain cases where additional support would be needed.
“Many a time, these checks are necessary to ensure the cement is put to its intended use,” Mr Ayiah said
Mr. Ayiah applauded the owners and caretakers of the projects for honouring their pledges to put the cement GHACEM given them for their intended uses.
In an interview, Mrs. Mary Boham, the Head Teacher of St Andrews Anglican Complex School – one of the beneficiaries applauded GHACEM for supporting projects of national interest.
She urged other Corporate Organizations to follow the Ghacem example to ensure National development
