The Board has Mr Edwin Barnes, a retired civil servant, as chairman, with the members including Mr Emmanuel N.O. Laryea, the Member of Parliament (MP) for Amasaman, Mr Moses Anim, the MP for Amasaman-Trobo, Mr Addo Dankwa Akuffo, the Amasaman Municipal Director of Education and Madam Beatrice Agbalenyo, Assemblywoman.

Mr Sam Atukwei Quaye, the Ga West Municipal Chief Executive, said Ghanaians owed it a duty to enroll their children in school despite the challenges they went through.

He said education was critical in the development of any nation and that it did not only develop the intellectual and social skills but broke socio-economic barriers and created opportunities for children.

Mr Quaye said many children of school-going age remained at home, particularly due to poverty, and called on parents and guardians to enroll them so as to benefit from the Fund.

He said the Fund would ensure that the gap between the rich and poor was closed to give hope to current and future generations.

“Thomas Jefferson, the third president of the United States of America, once said the children of the poor must be, thus, educated at common expense,” Mr Quaye said and asked the members of the Fund to manage it well to give hope to the needy and brilliant students.

The Municipal Assembly is providing GH¢50,000 as seed money for the Fund while the two MPs pledged to donate GH¢25,000.00 from their share of the common fund to support it.

The MPs assured the Board of Trustees of their continuous support to the Fund to ensure that the youth had good education.
