One of the world’s long-serving stationery to many students in different parts of the world has presented 100,000 pieces of pens to the GES to be distributed to the Junior High School students who are preparing for their final exams, BECE. They are to be distributed to deprived communities in the country.
The Business Development Manager, Mr George Nkansah for Ghana, Togo and Benin said the BIC International output had presented 100,000 pencils to the USAID Partnership for Education; Learning Activity in collaboration with the GES in support of an Early Grade Reading Programme implemented in 100 districts across the 16 regions.
The USAID Partnership for Education; Learning is part of an integral project designed to support the Ministry of Education and the GES to improve reading performance in public schools in the country. He said one key intervention of the programme was to increase the availability of quality materials to improve teaching and learning in over 7,200 schools.
Prof Kwasi Opoku Amankwa, the Director-General showed his appreciation to BIC International for the donation, saying the gesture would go a long way to encourage the students to learn more and perform better in their final exams.
