Mr Amos Adjei, Assemblyman for the Wassa Essaman Electoral Area in the Wassa East District of the Western Region has donated about 200 bags of cement worth GHc 15,000 to three (3) communities within the Electoral Area to support Community Self Help initiated projects.
The beneficiary communities include Adukrom, Kakabo, and Abetimasu.
Speaking in an interview after the presentation, Mr Adjei said the donation was to support the renovation of the Kakabo school building project, the construction of a three-unit classroom block at Adukrom, and the construction of teachers quarters at Abetimasu.
He disclosed that the dilapidated educational infrastructure situation in the three schools motivated him to look for external support for the communities by using his office as the Assembly Member of the area to apply through the District Assembly and the Educational Directorate to the GHACEM Foundation for the cement.
He added that the people managed to procure most of the needed materials for the projects except cement which required huge capital to kick start the projects and through the benevolent support from GHACEM the project would commerce without hindrance.
While donating the cement, the Assemblyman urged the beneficiary communities to use the product for the intended purpose.
He added that other communities may also get the opportunity to benefit if the project is completed and evidence of it in pictorials was presented to the GHACEM Foundation.
Mr Adjei praised the chiefs and people of the beneficiary communities for putting their destiny in their own hands by deciding to initiate projects to support education and the future of their children.
Representatives from the beneficiary communities were full of praise and thanked the Assemblyman and the GHACEM Foundation for the kind gesture to alleviate their plight.
