Hollard Revamps ICT Centre at Nima Cluster of schools for gHS 70,000
Hollard Ghana together with its subsidiaries, Hollard Insurance and Hollard Life Assurance, as part of their social responsibility to the nation, have refurbished the Information Communication Technology (ICT) center at the Nima Cluster of schools.
The renovation which was to a tune of about GHS70,000 included repairing and replacing 46 computers, provision of up-to-date software, Wi-Fi cards, UPS, a projector and screen, and internet connection.
Structural works such as retiling the floor, ceiling replacement, painting, furniture repair, installation of air conditioning units, fans, and burglar proofing, among others, were also recreated to provide a conducive learning environment for pupils.
CEO of the insurance company, Madam Patience Akyianu, accompanied by the Director for Ayawaso East, Miss Adisa Tassa, Head of Marketing and Corporate Affairs at Hollard, Cynthia Ofori-Dwumfuo, the two headmistresses of Nima Basic 1 and 2, school officials, as well as a selection of pupils were present for the unveiling of the project.
Miss Akyianu said this project forms part of the company’s corporate social responsibility in order to help create an enabling environment for a better future.
“Our mantra at Hollard is ‘We Do Well By Doing Good.’ We aim to impact our community positively by treating them with care and dignity. We find fulfillment in ensuring that the communities we operate in are better off than before. We engaged the School Improvement Support Officer of the district, Mr. Alhassan, and the Nima Cluster of Schools authorities. We discovered that their ICT facility was appalling and incapable of serving the needs of the schools. It had only three barely functional desktops serving about 1000 students in a dilapidated space. As a responsible corporate citizen, we knew we had to act, and so we did.” she noted.
“These young pupils are the future of Ghana, with a right to quality education regardless of their background. By refurbishing the ICT center, we believe we support upgrading teaching and learning from theory to practice. With the added advantage of boosting students’ interest in ICT”.
Miss Adisa Tassa, commended Hollard Ghana for the quick support lent out to them by Hollard Ghana, especially considering the time frame they were given.
“We are very grateful to Hollard Ghana for embarking on this phenomenal project. I am stunned because of the volume of work done within three weeks of identifying the problem. The effort, time, and funding put into the project speak volumes of Hollard Ghana’s passion for supporting its community. I am even more impressed that the company has offered to provide internet connectivity for now and all through 2022. Through this kind gesture, my district can boldly boast of an ultra-modern ICT center,” she said
The headmistresses of the Nima Cluster of Schools made up of Nima Basic 1, and 2 schools, Miss Eva Edna Bani and Patricia Owusu Ansah respectively, expressed their profound gratitude to Hollard Ghana for their immense support to the school.
