REACT DONATES TRICYCLES TO CHILDREN
By kind courtesy of SAGE Publishing REACT has presented Tricycles worth £450 to some of our beneficiaries in Ghana.
The equipments which were locally manufactured by REACT’s local partner; Mak-D Metal Works enabled REACT to reduce procurement and shipment cost of supplies from the UK to Ghana in the long term while supporting local businesses. This year’s donations went to 13-year-old Emmanuela Sarpong and 19year old Sandra Ohui Adjargo who could not benefit from our supplies last year due to limited.
The items were presented to the beneficiaries at school to the delight of their peers. Receiving the items the Headteacher of the Old Ningo Presbyterian Basic A primary; Mrs Paulina Gyane expressed her delight for the support, particularly for Emmanuela whom she said has been struggling commuting to school in her dilapidated wheelchair. She said this donation will cut Emmanuela’s journey time to school, sustain her 100 per cent attendance and improve her overall academic performance. REACT director Prince Osei Akowuah said he was delighted SAGE Publishing made these donations possible and urged the beneficiaries to put them to good use in other to maximise their determination to seek knowledge. He said REACT will continue to monitor the impact of the tricycles on their well-being and academic performance to learn lessons and be able to support other children in need in the future.
