Two US-based NGOs support Mawuli School
Two United States-based non-governmental organizations (NGOs) have provided Mawuli School, Ho with office equipment worth about GH₵56,000.
They are Mawuli Fund Inc., and Progress in Education Inc.Subscribe
This followed an appeal from the school administration for the replacement the obsolete and broken down equipment which had led to immense challenges in administering examinations to the students.
The equipment included a Risograph, desktop computer, photocopier, scanner, and other related accessories.
According to the headmaster Mr. Jonathan Adomah, the school currently had a student population of 3,985, comprising 1,876 boys and 1,509 girls and a staff strength of 285.
He expressed appreciation to the two organizations for their prompt response to the school’s distress call.
Mr Adomah hoped the new equipment would improve the administrative work of the school, and ultimately lead to better academic performances by the students.
The Mawuli Fund is a non-profit organization founded in 1999 with the goal of promoting educational excellence in secondary schools in Ghana, particularly Mawuli School.
It is an affiliate organization of the Old Mawuli Students Union (OMSU).
The Fund has engaged in several ground-breaking initiatives, including a 40-foot container book drive to Volta Region schools, scholarship schemes, and a recent donation of 300 beds to Mawuli School.
Other initiatives of the group are an inter-school Critical Thinking Tournament that was launched in May 2022, and the commissioning of a Development Plan for Mawuli School, which included a full topographic survey of the school’s lands.
Progress in Education is a charitable organization incorporated in the Commonwealth of Virginia in August 2000 to promote education in high schools in Ghana and the United States.
It raises funds and secures donations to distribute computers and laboratory equipment to high schools in Ghana.
We also award scholarships to deserving college-bound high school students in the United States and support cultural exchanges between students from Ghana and the United States.
