This morning, I presented 420 monodesks, 370 dual desks and 250 KG tables and chairs to public schools in the Manhyia South Constituency during a short ceremony.
Funded through my share of the GETFund, the donation is intended to improve teaching and learning in schools in my constituency.
Mr. David Oppong, the Kumasi Metro Director of Education, receiving the items, assured of good maintenance culture to ensure their longevity.
I have continually striven to improve educational standards in my constituency and this donation is an example of my efforts and support.
