SMT Ghana donates books to Savelugu School for the Deaf

SMT Ghana, distributor of Volvo automobiles in Ghana, has donated books and mathematical sets to the Savelugu School for the Deaf in the Northern Region.


While on visit to the school to donate the books, the company also held a Volvo Truck traffic safety course dubbed: “Stop, Look and Wave” for the schoolchildren.

It is a global initiative by the Volvo Group to give children across the world the opportunity to have a better understanding of how trucks operate and safety rules when encountering one.

It involves the application of an easy to understand way of making children aware of the risks and how best to avoid them.

They were taken through a practical demonstration on the safer use of roads by pedestrians.

The Savelugu School for the Deaf admits children with hearing disability from the region where they can receive an education in Mathematics, English, but also teaches them to use sign language in order to be able to communicate and express themselves.

Presenting the items, the Managing Director of SMT Ghana, Alex Dutamby, expressed the company’s dedication to giving back to society, especially the most vulnerable, as part of its corporate social responsibility and as part of the SMT Africa Group’s core values of caring, daring and sharing.

“Education means a lot to SMT Ghana and the Volvo Group and this is in line with our values of caring and sharing where we want to support schools for the students to continue to grow and learn, particularly towards those that won’t have the same chances as everybody else”.

Mr Dutamby underscored the Volvo truck safety for the kids as a reinforcement of its mandate of allowing staff to continue to focus on training, and this he believes will provide the opportunity for the students to continue to grow and learn.

The Headmistress of the Savelugu School for the Deaf, Nora Naaso, thanked the company for the donation and training.

She said the school needed a whole lot of support and that the books came at the opportune time to help the pupils.

Mrs Naaso also appealed to other corporate bodies to come to the aid of vulnerable groups in the country.

The Training Manager of SMT Ghana, Jasper Agbakpe, who is a certified Volvo trainer for the SMT Group, was supported by other officials of the company to take the students through the Volvo Truck traffic safety.

The Marketing and Communication Director of SMT Ghana, Hilda Peasah, urged the students to take their studies and road safety seriously.
