Rural Impact Foundation supports rural education (pg 30)

he Rural Impact Initiative/Eno Birago Charity Foundation has donated second-hand clothing and shoes worth GHC 700 to the Regent University College to support the school’s Rural Educational Empowerment Project(REEP).
The donation, which was in response to the university’s appeal, would be distributed to school children in the Kyenkulabi L/A Primary School in the Kraboa-Coalter District of the Eastern Region to motivate them stay in school.
Donating the items, the Chairperson of the Rural Impact Initiative/Eno Birago Charity Foundation, Mrs Yvone Birago Sasu, said her outfit was touched by the plight of the children in that community who had to go to school sometimes barefooted and sometimes wear tattered clothes.
She said the foundation currently supports children who are deprived in the Dansoman community by paying their fees and providing them with clothes.
She said even though there were a lot of children under the foundation’s care, a lot more needed to done to ensure that children of schooling-age “who are at home“ go to school in order to secure their future.
She appealed to corporate institutions, individuals and groups to support the activities of the foundation so “it can bring smiles to deprived single parents and children who need one help or another to survive”.
Receiving the items, Dr Justice Appiah-Kubi, the Co-coordinator of the REEP, said the donation would go a long way towards sustaining the interest of the children to “stay in school”.
He said the REEF formed part of the school’s corporate social responsibility to improve upon the infrasture in the Kyenkularbi town, as well as promote education in the area.
Dr Appiah-Kubi pledged to use the items for the purpose for which they were donated and expressed appreciation to the Rural Impact Initiative/Eno Birago Charity Foundation for its prompt response to the school’s appeal, adding “we would continue to work with you to bring hope to those who need it”.
