Immanuel World Outreach Ministries, a Non-Profit Christian Organization, has donated shoes and stationery to the Noyaa Preparatory School, and Christ the King of Kings Preparatory School in James Town, a suburb of Accra.
The gesture is to help improve education in the fishing community, as well as give hope of better lives for the school children.
Dr Immanuel Ojo, Director in charge of the Ministries, said he was in Ghana in 2011 for a Leadership Summit and a friend introduced him to the schools, where he realized that some of the students walked bare footed to school.
Dr Ojo said he thought it prudent with the help of the Ministries to provide those items to ensure effective learning.
He said the organization places emphasis on education, since it is key to national development, and that there is the need to support under-privileged schools to better the well-being of the children.
Dr Ogo stressed that the organization focuses on providing economic, logistic, training and faith-based outreach services to poor local and international communities, beset by man-made and natural trauma or difficulties.
The organization, he said, also provides disaster relief responses, helps to rebuild key infrastructures, like hospitals, libraries and schools in poor regions of the world, and offer mission outreach programmes and services, and share the Gospel with the world
Naa Asabeah, Director of Noyaa School, thanked the organization for the donation.
She said, the school, with a population of 60 students, lacks proper structures, and that anytime it rains, it affects teaching and learning’
Naa Asabeah, therefore, appealed to other corporate bodies to come to their aid.
Mr Edmund Okai, Headteacher of Christ the King of Kings also thanked the organization for the gesture, adding that it would help improve teaching and learning in the school. GNA
