The African Mining Services Ghana Limited (AMSG), a contract mining service provider, has handed over a Toyota Hilux double cabin pickup to support girl child education in the country.
The keys to the pickup were handed over to the Save The Girl Child Foundation, a charity organisation committed to promoting vulnerable girls and children's right to education in rural communities.
The Operations Manager of the company, Mr Joseph Abu-Baka on behalf of AMSG, presented the keys to Mr Frantz Oswald Wulff, who received them on behalf of the proprietor of the foundation, Ms Mabel Adelaide Offei-Akoto.
The donation was the latest in a series of support by the mining company to local community businesses as part of its corporate social responsibility.
The company had earlier donated a refurbished Toyota double cabin Hilux vehicle to the Tarkwa Nsuaem Municipal Health Directorate to improve their outreach services, monitoring and supervision.
Mr Abu-Baka explained that the donation was to help the foundation to facilitate its daily activities, adding “we believe every girl-child needs attention and so the objective of the foundation is worthy to support”.
The company, which has been in operation in the country for over 25 years, according to its operations manager, took interest in developing the human resource capital and supporting local community businesses.
It has trained more than 95 young Ghanaians through its sponsorship apprenticeship programmes for the country’s work force in the sector.
Mr Abu-Baka said the company was looking more into supporting foundations that built human capital and would, therefore, roll out other programmes that would be of help to the community.
For his part, Mr Wulff commended the AMSG for supporting the foundation with the vehicle.
“We are very appreciative of what the AMSG has done to the foundation and this will go a long way to facilitate the foundation’s work in advancing girl-child education,” he said.
