The Stay in School Foundation supports School Children in Ghana

stay-in-schoolThe Stay in School Foundation, non-Governmental organization based in the United States of America, has handed over school bags and some stationeries to children at Kaase in the Ashanti Region to help them in their schooling. Established in 2008, the NGO seeks to mentor young ones through career guidance and counseling, as well as solicit funds to award educational scholarships to children in deprived communities.

Addressing parents during a presentation ceremony at the Kaase Primary School, the founder of the NGO, Mr Thomas Osei, said it had always been his dream to assist the less privileged in  society and ensure that they stayed in school.

He said the decision to assist the Kaase community was to honor his late sister, who was once at the Kaase Primary School and also help reduce the high drop-out rate of children in the area.
He, in that direction, charges parents to devote more time for children and called on other corporate bodies and individuals to come on board to support government efforts in creating opportunities for these future leaders. Mr Osei urged school children to take their lessons seriously and see quality education as a way forward, adding that education is a powerful weapon; you can use it to change the world.

The NGO, earlier on handed over a fully stocked 50-capacity library to the people of Bokankye in the Atwima Nwabiagye District of Ashanti Region. Dr Bukari Ali, a retired lecturer at the Geological Engineering Department of Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology(KNUST), who spoke at the ceremony, commended the group for assisting the vulnerable in society, especially in the area of education. He underscore the need for children to have access to quality education in order to prepare them adequately to becoming responsible adults in future.
