Council on Persons with Disability receives computers, accessories
The National Council on Persons with Disability has gotten a few computers and accessories to help their regulatory works following two years of spontaneous creativities.
The Council hired a workforce quite a while back to increase their staff strength yet needed to depend to a great extent on the staff’s very own PCs to do everyday office obligations.
The things they received were ten personal computers, two laptops, and a multipurpose scanner that does scanning and printing.
The items worth over Ghc 80,000, were given by the Good Causes Foundation, a foundation wing of the National Lottery Authority (NLA), to the Executive Secretary and Board Members of the Council.
The National Lotto Act, 2006(Act 722) commands the NLA “with the object of providing care and protection for the physically or mentally afflicted, the needy, the aged, orphans and destitute children.”
Madam Amma Frimpong, the Deputy Coordinator of the Foundation, in a meeting with a journalist, said they recognized the Council as one of the organizations that required equipment to work with, in their day-to-day administrative works after a certain commitment.

” If you don’t have the necessary tools to work with, it makes the work difficult. We are in a technological world, and they need to transfer information and these gadgets would help their work,” Madam Frimpong added.
She said the Authority is thinking about plans to give out grants to people with disabilities to work on their field of interest and help those into business with new businesses.
Madam Esther Akua Gyamfi, the Executive Secretary of, the National Council on Persons with Disability, said the things would help the Council in their strategy detailing and execution and in contacting the 26 classifications of people with handicaps.
She guaranteed the Foundation that the things would be effectively utilized.
Madam Mawunyo Yakor-Dagbah, a Governing Board Member, said, she was grateful the Council had gotten the equipment, adding that they would help in organizing handicap issues all over the nation.
She said they wouldn’t just get help from the NLA but also help the Authority in further developing disability considerations in their work environments and make structures disability cordial.
