Takoradi, Oct. 4, GNA – The Springfield
E&P, an oil exploration company, on Thursday presented educational
materials and a scholarship package of CH¢1200.00 each for 140 underprivileged
children in the six coastal districts of the Western Region.

Mr Ken Nunoo, the Corporate Affairs Manager,
during the presentation at the Metropolitan Office of the Ghana Education
Service in Takoradi, said developing education at the basic level was critical
in advancing quality human resource and socioeconomic development of the
country.

The scholarship scheme, to be piloted for
three years, would see 20 students from the six coastal districts including
Effia Kwesimintsim Municipality to have access to sound and quality basic
education.

The Corporate Affairs Manager said the
Springfield E&P was of the firm belief that education had the key to
unlocking hidden potentials and abilities of every child and, therefore,
presented a pleasant opportunity for the company to invest in the future of the
Ghanaian child.

He hinted that the company may scale up the project
after its pilot phase in the proposed three years and encouraged parents of the
beneficiaries to make good use of the scholarship package, monitor and ensure
positive academic progress of their wards to help achieve the goals of the
scholarship.

Mr Martin Nyameke Ackah, a Director at the
Metro Education Office, said he was enthused about the move to help improve
teaching and learning within the Metropolis and said the gesture would go a
long way to advance quality education as those children would have sound mind
for studies.

“In fact many of these children could go
places and be great men and women with the right kind of support and that is
why we are happy about this gesture today…We only want to advice these children
to learn hard in order to become great citizenry in the future”.
