In his speech, Hon. Kobena Mensah Woyome stated the purpose of the donation and the steps he’s taking to address the challenges faced by these schools.
“It’s an honour to be here once again to give you, out of your many wishes, just a token to aid in teaching. I know the challenges you face… all are being communicated to the appropriate authorities for redress…
This is not the beginning and this will not be the end, we will continue such little interventions until a time that we see the bigger smiles with the completion of some of the bigger things we are hoping for.
We will continue to talk, we will continue to communicate, we will continue to do the needful….”, he said while presenting the items to the District Director of Education, Ms. Evelyn Araba Zentey, at the Sogakope Senior High School.
