MRS CLARA Akua Agyeman, wife of the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Taabea Company Ltd, has supported the Dedesua DA Basic School with key educational materials to help boost teaching and learning.
The school, which is situated in the Bosomtwe district in the Ashanti Region, lacks several teaching and learning materials, therefore the timely presentation by Taabea boss’ wife is laudable.
The items presented included a brand new projector, tables for Information and Communication Technology (ICT), boxes of pen, exercise books and bags branded with Taabea products worth GH¢10,000.
The presentation was in fulfilment of a promise that Mrs Clara Akua Agyeman had made to the school to make teaching and learning easier and interesting.
She used the occasion to appeal passionately to organisations and affluent people in society to support deprived schools in the country so that they could teach students properly.
She was of the opinion that government alone could not support educational institutions, stressing the need for all and sundry to contribute their quota towards the promotion of education.
Mrs Akua Agyeman said the youth, including those dwelling in the deprived areas, are the future leaders of the state, therefore society should play key roles to enable them be educated well to help make them influential people in future.
She stated that the donation would not be a nine days’ wonder, assuring that she and her husband, Mr Christian Agyeman and the entire Taabea Company staff would sustain their support for the underprivileged in society.
Mr Christian Agyeman, whose company produces Taabea Herbal Mixture and capsules for the treatment of malaria and other ailments, is noted for his support for the less privileged in society.
The Taabea chief and some staff of the company were there to witness the presentation on Wednesday.
Cynthia Kwanin, headmistress of Dedesua DA Basic School, showered tonnes of praises on Mrs Akua Agyeman, her husband and the entire staff of the company for their kind gesture.
She mentioned lack of furniture, inadequate classroom blocks and library as some of the pressing needs of the school, noting that teaching would improve if most of their needs were addressed.
