Delali Adiamah, the CEO of Waya Money, has provided financial support to the PEC Institute — a non-profit organisation that focuses on education and mentorship in the rural areas of Ghana, to enable them to provide school bags for school kids in rural communities in Ghana.
The PEC Institute, as part of their activities, embarked on an outreach dubbed ‘The Before SHS Drive’ initiative in Ghanaian rural communities where they engaged JHS 3 students as they prepare for their progression into the senior high school level.
They teach the students on the various programmes, their respective core and elective subjects, as well as, the things to consider when choosing a programme. They also include lessons about personal hygiene.
During these outreaches, the PEC Institute shares items such as toothbrushes, toothpaste, shaving stick, and reusable PEC branded nose masks, which comes in paper bags.
The Institute, however, realised that the students reused the paper bags as their “school bags”. This, however, necessitated the provision of proper school bags for the students.
In support of this project, Mr Adiamah made a donation of GHC4,000. According to him, the mission of the PEC Institute aligns with Waya Money’s goal of supporting the education of kids in less privileged communities.
“At Waya Money, we believe in financial inclusion for all and inclusion starts with education. The PEC Institute is helping children from disadvantaged backgrounds with skills and toolkits that will improve their level of education. Their mission aligns with our goal of supporting local projects within the community and the education of children. We have supported similar projects in Nigeria as well,” he told Kuulpeeps.com.
The PEC Institute is, however, looking at providing a total of 300 school bags for school kids, during their next outreach at Afram Plains.
