THE Rotary Club of Accra Ring Road Central has raised GH¢8,000 to complete a school building at Asempaneye, a town in the Eastern Region.
Of the amount raised, Aviation Alliance donated $2,000, A-Kon Consult donated GH¢1,000, Gyandoh, Asmah & Co. donated $500, while GH¢3,000 was raised by the club from a fund-raising walk.
The project is part of the club’s social service to deprived communities for the year. So far, the first phase of the project, comprising a three-classroom block and a store, has been completed.
The second phase will involve roofing and furnishing of the 100-seating-capacity building for the pupils who hitherto were having their lessons in a dilapidated wood and mud structure.
At a meeting in Accra, the club received a further donation of GH¢500 from Creative Eye, an advertising company.
Making the presentation on behalf of the Chief Executive Officer of the company, Mr Khalas Rashid, a Chief Operations Officer, Mr Freddy Shava, said to commemorate its first anniversary since starting operations in the country, Creative Eye decided to contribute to the society by supporting the Accra Ring Road Central branch of the club towards the project.
The President of the club, Mr Jeffrey Afful, expressed his appreciation for the donation and said it would help in the realisation of the dream of giving pupils the right infrastructure to study.
He presented Creative Eye with a citation and a small vehicle banner of the club.
