In addition, she said, “this is another year of fulfilling our commitment to this university, and we want to ensure that opportunities are given to needy, brilliant students so that they are not left out.”
Prof. Awandare expressed gratitude to Latex Foam for the gesture and acknowledged the significance of such contributions in enabling access to education for deserving students.
He highlighted the pivotal role played by corporate entities such as Latex Foam in empowering the academic dreams of bright minds within the University of Ghana community.
He said the impactful gesture by Latex Foam underscored the importance of collaborative efforts in creating a more inclusive and accessible educational landscape in the country.
Prof. Awandare further commended the company for its unwavering support to the university and prayed that the company would even double its contribution in the future to enable more deserving students to access the fund.
