As part of its corporate social responsibility to its operational area, Sunon Asogli Power (Ghana) Limited, an independent power producer in the Republic of Ghana, on Thursday, donated some items to St. Mary’s Primary & JHS at Kpone, near Tema, to promote education in the area.
The items included quantities of bags of cement, 90 variety of paints, four desktop computers and about 150 cement blocks.
Sunon Asogli, which was established in 2009, has installed capacity of 560 MW, but currently generates about 350MW of power.
The company, which is a subsidiary of Shenzhan Energy Group Limited, has supported its operational area in diverse ways with the latest being the St. Mary’s Primary & JHS school.
At a brief ceremony to present the items, which coincided with the ‘Our Day’ of the school, Chairman of Sunon Asogli Power (Ghana) Limited Mr Qun Yang, in a speech read for him by Mr Kojo Wang , deputy General Manager said the gesture was to motivate and reward the efforts of the proprietress and management of the school and to encourage them to do more for the kids. He said management would not only give items to the school but invest in the future of the children.
“Children are the key to a successful future and it is very important they have a safe and comfortable space where they spend most of the early stages of their lives.
“Sunon Asogli Power has been in this community for over 10 years and we are committed to our corporate social responsibility,” he added.
According to him, the company has made it a point to collaborate and support individuals and institutions who are positively impacting lives within the community, stressing that it is for this reason “we are donating some items (paint, cement and other building materials) for the renovation of the classroom blocks and computers the children can use to improve their IT skills.”
Mr. Yang commended the efforts of the teachers and asked the children to take advantage of their time to study in order to secure a brighter future.
“You must learn to listen to your parents and teachers. You are the future leaders of this great country Ghana, and we believe in you. It is our prayer that you will grow to become good and responsible citizens in the society and the world at large,” he advised.
Municipal Chief Executive for Kpone-Katamanso, Solomon Appiah commended management of Sunon Asogli Power (Ghana) Limited for always responding to the needs of the people in the Kpone community and beyond.
He used the occasion to charge the children to eschew bad practices such as excessive play and disrespecting the elderly especially their parents, and instead focus on their education.
Proprietress of the school, Elizabeth A. Ako-Nai thanked the management of Asogli Power Ghana Limited for responding to her request.
