The six unit classroom block is expected to directly benefit over 200 pupils in Asikasu and its environs. Speaking at the commissioning ceremony, Mrs. Cynthia Lumor, the Executive Director of MTN Ghana Foundation said since the establishment of the Foundation in 2007, MTN Ghana Foundation has impacted the lives of about three million people through 102 projects in the areas of education, health and economic empowerment.

She said, “To us at the MTN Ghana Foundation, this is a demonstration of what corporate social interventions should be. MTN is happy to identify needs and help fulfill it in a way that is meaningful and sustainable.”
Mrs Lumor tasked both teachers and pupils of the school to adopt a good maintenance culture in order to preserve the facility.

The Headmaster of the school, Mr. Emmanuel Larbi Apraku expressed his profound gratitude to MTN Ghana for the new classroom block. He said the provision of the new classroom block will help motivate students to work harder to achieve excellent results. He also stated that the provision of the school block will also help in increasing admissions.
