Mr. Samuel Ledo, a philanthropist has donated two industrial sewing machines and their accessories to Clef Technical Institute on Saturday to fulfill his promise to the school.
According to the beneficiary the machines worth GH¢10,000 were part of his widow’s contribution to promote teaching and learning at the school.
He said that his aim was also to revive the patriotic and communal feeling among the indigenous people of the region and he promised to maintain this spirit as things got better.
Mr Ledo assured that an electrical tool kit would be distributed among others at the earliest.
Mr. Isaac Yaw Amisah, Principal of the Institute, who received the machines on behalf of the Institute, thanked the donor for his kindness and described the gesture as timely, forward-looking and supportive of knowledge.
He said lack of equipment and infrastructure is his major challenge for the 12-year-old institute with a current student population of 65 and an expectation of around 120 freshers.
The principal said there was an urgent need for classrooms, workshops and hostel facilities as the school operates from a five-unit classroom block and appealed for support.
The Deputy Volta Regional Director of Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET), Mrs. Perfect Aku Fikwadzo, said that TVET is important as the engine of the country’s industrialization agenda, which demands that citizens have practical skills and the ability to rapidly build up their economic self. skills for the development of entrepreneurship. Adequacy, everyone needs to adopt.
The Institute’s Board Chairman Mr. Prosper Enevu said that Mr. Ledo has shown commitment as a genuine citizen of the region and urged others to follow his example.
Present were Very Right Rev. Japhet Yao Ledo, former Moderator of the General Assembly of the EP Church, Ghana, staff and students of the Institute, who expressed their gratitude to the benefactor.
