The people of South Dayi have been urged to help provide ICT facilities for pupils and students in their communities. The MP for the area, Edem Asimah, made the call at the inauguration of a computer centre and library at the Peki-Tsame Basic Schools. He commended Peki-Tsame for setting the pace by establishing the first ICT centre through the instrumentality of Mawutor Ndenya-Akpedonu, who provided eight laptops and twenty-two desktop computers worth US$30,000. Ndenya-Akpedonu, who is resident in the US, is the Development Queen of Peki-Tsame. She also provided books worth ten thousand dollars for the basic school library and promised to equip the ICT facility with Internet. The MP said the knowledge of ICT has become an important factor in the global community and therefore a must for all children if they are to fit into the global village. He therefore commended Ndenya-Akpedonu for helping her community and called on the leaders of Peki-Tsame to maintain the computers.

The Chief of Peki-Tsame, Togbe Baduvie, thanked Mrs. Ndenya Akpedonu and her colleagues from the USA for the gesture. He said the pupils are fortunate to be given a head start in ICT education which has been integrated into the Basic school syllabus. The Chairman of the Accra branch of the Peki-Tsame Central Union, Samuel Bortsi, said the community has refurbished two classrooms at a cost of GHC2,500 to accommodate the computer centre and the library. He said the community has also employed staff to run and maintain the two facilities.
