The MTN Ghana Foundation has commissioned a modern library for a High School in the Eastern region.
The facility will include a 20 seater ICT Centre and Teachers common area. In addition, the MTN Ghana Foundation partnered with Huawei Ghana to deploy fibre broadband to provide internet service for the school.
The library which will provide over 2,000 students with access to textbooks, research material and electronic books from reputable databases and publishers was constructed at a cost of USD $112 487,64.
CEO of MTN Ghana, Selorm Adadevoh said, “the main function of a school library is to develop the reading and research habits of students. It basically fills an information gap and helps to open the world view of students.”
“One day, I believe we will read about some great Ghanaians from this school that have innovated to impact the lives of many. This greatness will not only be linked to Ghana, not only to Africa but the whole world and I hope that we can attribute a part of that to the launch of this modern library facility and ICT centre today,” he added.
The Foundation has so far constructed and handed over 26 ICT centres and four libraries and refurbished the Western Regional Library a few years ago.
