BIC has donated 70,000 BIC crystal pens to 70,000 final-year students across various regions in Ghana  to help them write comfortably and succeed in the upcoming 2021 Basic Education Certificate Examinations (BECE).

The donation forms part of the company’s activities to mark its 70th anniversary celebrations.

The Business Development Manager for Ghana-Cameroon clusters at BIC, Mr George Nkonsah, who presented the items, gave an assurance of the company’s continuous support for the Ghana Education Service (GES) to ensure growth of the education sector in Ghana.

“At BIC, we are committed to improving lives through education, and this is one of the many initiatives that we are proud of and wish to continue to build on in the regions. The COVID-19 pandemic has negatively impacted the education sector around the world and in our region, and we are committed to working with the relevant partners to help flourish and revamp the sector”, he stated.

The Director General of GES, Professor Kwesi Opoku Amankwa, received the items and expressed his appreciation for them and commended BIC’s commitment to support Ghana’s education sector.

“We are very appreciative of the donation and of BIC’s commitment to the education sector in Ghana. It is refreshing to work with brands that value the importance of education and strive to improve communities they operate in.

We look forward to building further on this partnership through impactful initiatives in the future,” he said.
