The commissioning of the ultramodern library and ICT center at New Juaben Senior High School forms part of the MTN Ghana Foundation’s 10th Anniversary activities. The facility can boast of full internet connectivity and Teachers’ common room.
Financed through the MTN Foundation, the facility which costs Ghc 602,000.00 replaces the poorly ventilated library that was stocked with obsolete books and gives the Students and Teachers the opportunity to enhance their digital knowledge.
The new library with a 200 seating capacity and the 20-seater ICT centre is expected to give both students and the teaching staff better learning and teaching environment.
Huawei Ghana, partners for the project, will bear the cost of the high-speed internet being provided at the facility for five years.
The commissioning of the facility brings to 144, projects funded by the MTN Foundation totaling Ghc 33 million. Of the 144 projects across the country, 82 are in the educational sector, 26 ICT centres and four libraries.
The Foundation is celebrating its anniversary under the theme “Celebrating Ten years of brightening lives, inspiring a brighter future.”
“I believe this would give you the opportunity to learn in a different way to expand your digital knowledge about how things happen in different parts of the world and be part of that revolution.” MTN CEO Selorm Adadevoh said in his speech.
Mr. Frank Obeng Wilson, Head of the school expressed his appreciation to the MTN foundation for the gesture. He promised to make good use of the facility and assured of the school's commitment to maintain it.
