HFC Investment Services Limited, a subsidiary of HFC Bank Ghana has commissioned a 3-unit Pre-School complex for the people of Manchie community in the Ga West Municipality of the Greater Accra Region.

The construction of the pre-school complex is an initiative embarked on by staff of HFC Investments Services Limited as part of their staff volunteerism project. The project was financed through staff donations and other innovative initiatives undertaken by the Staff to raise funds.

According to the Managing Director, the support shown by the HFC Investments team to the Manchie community is in line with the Bank’s vision of building successful communities. He added that “the Bank will continue to impact the lives of the community through its Corporate Social Responsibility interventions and staff volunteerism programs.
The General Manager of HFC Investments, Mr Peter Larbi-Yeboah encouraged the School and community leaders to develop a good maintenance culture towards the building complex and learning materials. He also thanked the community leaders as well as the project consultants for their support throughout the project.
