Rebecca Foundation Builds ultra-modern library at Dambai
The Rebecca Foundation has commissioned a library at Dambai Lapaz community school in the Krachi East Municipality of the Oti Region to enhance effective studies.
As part of efforts to increase the role of literacy in education, the Rebecca Foundation has commissioned a library at Dambai Lapaz community school in the Krachi East Municipality of the Oti Region.
The construction of the library forms part of the initiative by the First Lady, Mrs Rebecca Akufo-Addo through her Rebecca Foundation, to provide some communities with an ultra-modern library facility stocked with books on varied subjects as well as computers and internet facility to enable pupils and teachers engage in informative and educational internet-based research.
In addition to this, the Rebecca Foundation has since 2017 constructed 7 ultra-modern library facilities across the country to provide pupils and the youth in the communities with a conducive environment to acquire knowledge.
Commissioning the facility on her behalf, Richard Darko, said, the First Lady is passionate about the empowerment of the youth through education to be better positioned to fully harness opportunities that the globally competitive world offers.
Touching on it numerous interventions, he also noticed that the Rebecca Foundation has also empowered young women economically and socially in the acquisition of vocational skills and provision of artisanal equipment to complete the government's efforts in enhancing the well-being of the youth.
He advised students at Dambai and its environs to take advantage of the facility to enhance their academic capacities.
Acknowledging the effort, the Oti Regional Minister, Joshua Makubu, expressed hope that the library facility will significantly allow pupils to improve their educational performance and soar to higher academic and professional laurels.
The Krachi East Municipal Education Director, Georgina Mensah, thanked the Rebecca Foundation for the initiative, noting that the facility has come at a time when many pupils have more time on their hands to study.
She urged the pupils in the area to patronise the facility to enrich their knowledge.
However, the head of Ghana Library Authority (GLA) in the Oti Region, Ebenezer Guy Amartefio, expressed the authority's deepest appreciation to the First Lady and Rebecca Foundation for the initiative for helping GLA and Ghana Education Services.
He said that this will increase access to library facilities in schools across the country.
Meanwhile, some teachers and students who spoke with us also registered their joy saying that it will improve academic performance.
