2 US-based NGOs support Mawuli School
Two US-based NGOs have provided Mawuli School in Ho with office equipment worth about GHc56,000.
They are Mawuli Fund Inc., and Progress in Education Inc.
The equipment provided included a Risograph, desktop computer, photocopier, scanner, and other related accessories.
This followed an appeal from the school administration for the replacement of the obsolete and broken down equipment which had led to immense challenges in administering examinations to the students.
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 staff strength of 285.
He expressed appreciation to the two organisations for their prompt response to the school’s distress call.
Mr Adomah expressed the hope that the new equipment would improve administrative work of the school, and ultimately lead to better academic performances by the students.
Mawuli Fund is a non-profit organisation founded in 1999 with a goal of promoting educational excellence in secondary schools in Ghana, particularly Mawuli School.
