Ghana: Presby Church launches community education fund

One critical issue confronting the youth in the Sakumono community is the inability of some parents to give their children secondary and tertiary education, mainly because they cannot afford it.

As a result, a number of children drop out of school after completing basic education and those who do not have employable skills engage in petty trading with some of them getting exposed to antisocial activities.

To help the youth in the area realise their dreams and aspirations, the Anointed One Congregation of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana has launched the Anointed One Presbyterian Church Sakumono Community Education Fund to provide a platform to mobilise individuals, churches and corporate bodies to raise funds to support the education of brilliant, needy children in the Sakumono community and its environs.

The fund, which will operate as a non-denominational and non-profit making set-up has an 11-member board of trustees to act as a supervisory organ of the fund.

The Member of Parliament (MP) for Tema West, Ms Irene Naa Toshie Addo, who was the Guest of Honour, commended the church for its initiative to support less privileged persons in the community.

The Minister in charge of the Anointed One Congregation, Rev Emmanuel Adu Tetteh, said education was important because it added value to the life of a person and advised parents to invest in the education of their children and desist from spending money on unnecessary things like buying funeral cloths for different funerals.
