The Rotaract club in the University of Cape Coast has made a donation to the Imam Khomeini Basic School at Amamoma in the Cape Coast North Constituency as part of activities marking the club’s global Rotary week celebration.
Presenting the items to the school, the President of the club, Mr David Baganiah stated that it was very important they invest in education. He further admonished the student body to take their studies seriously since the future of this country is dependent on them and no other.
Mr Bismark Otto, the Head teacher of the school, thanked the club very much for their kind gesture. He promised that the items will be put into effective use.
The items donated included exercise books, pens, pencils,sharpeners,tissue, t-rolls, and teachers note books.
A revived Rotaract UCC (RUCC), through research, noticed that a lack of teaching and learning materials is one of the causes of poor academic performance in Basic schools in Ghana and Cape Coast remains one of the Regions that is bedeviled with the problem. The RUCC therefore decided to donate books and other learning materials to the Imam Khomeini Islamic School at Amamoma to help improve the situation in that school
