The Entire Village Computers Organisation Inc, a US based international Non-governmental (NGO) on Monday donated 10 computers and a printer to the Kuntanase Roman Catholic Primary and Junior High Schools, respectively. The computers which cost US$3500 are to enhance the teaching and learning of Information, Communication and Technology (ICT) in the schools and the community as a whole. Making the presentation, Seth Owusu, President of the NGO indicated that the donation was to support the training of all school children to be computer literates since the world had become an ICT world. He added that since ICT had now become the gateway to education, it would be prudent for all school children to have access to computer, hence the establishment of the NGO to support the world in that direction.
The President said a total of 17 clusters of schools in Africa are suppose to benefit from the package, 15 in Ghana, while the remaining two are in Nigeria. Receiving the donation, William Awuni, Bosomtwe District Director of Education, commended the NGO for the donation, which he said had come to complement government's effort at providing schools with computers and other teaching and learning materials. He called on the school authorities and the Parent Teachers Association to form a monitoring group to ensure effective use and proper maintenance of computers. Nana Premoh Kwagyan, Krontihene of Kuntanase who chaired the function, called on parents to invest in the education of their children and make sure that the children spent time at home learning.
