Mpraeso Methodist JHS Building

MTN?s Corporate Social Investment vehicle, the MTN Ghana Foundation is refurbishing the Mpraeso Methodist Junior High School block as part of MTN?s activities which marked this year?s Easter festivities at the Kwahu Ridge.

The 3-unit-classroom block built in 1958 has not seen any renovation for almost three decades and as a result is in a deplorable state. The refurbishment will be at a total cost of twenty eight thousand cedis (?28,000) and will include the replacement of the roof, doors and windows as well as the renovation of walls and floors.  Additionally, the Foundation will be providing new dual desks, tables and chairs for teachers. The project is scheduled to be completed in one and a half month?s time.

Announcing the refurbishment, Commercial Head-South Eastern Business District of MTN, Mr. Samuel Adjei-Sah said, ?over the last 6 years, the MTN Ghana Foundation has found innovative ways of giving back to communities. MTN?s support of Kwahu?s Easter festivals has contributed to the development of the area and also created employment for some indigenes in Kwahu.?

He noted that this was one of the ways in which MTN had embedded Corporate Social Investment (CSI) into the festival which MTN is associated with.

He recalled the donation of the ultra-modern neonatal incubator to the Kwahu Government Hospital during the Easter celebrations in 2011.

Mr. Adjei-Sah also reminded the people of the challenges encountered in MTN?s business operations, such as fiber cuts and power outages that affected and interrupted quality service delivery. He appealed to the Chiefs and opinion leaders to support in creating awareness in preventing fiber cuts. In delivering his speech, he brought to the fore MTN CSR initiatives in the Eastern Region and new products and services available for customers.

On his part, the Member of Parliament for the Mpraeso Constituency, Hon. Seth Kwame Acheampong expressed his appreciation and that of his constituents to MTN for the interest in the project and the prompt response to undertake the renovation.

The Chief of Mpraeso, Nana Ampadu Daaduam II, and his elders expressed their profound gratitude to MTN for their continuous support to Mpraeso and the Kwahu Traditional area in general. He later symbolically painted a small portion of the building and inscribed the letters ?MTN? to signify the commencement of work.

In addition to the refurbishment, MTN also made a total donation of GH ? 5,600.00 cash, recharge cards valued at GH ? 1,400, assorted drinks hampers and souvenirs to Kwahu Traditional Council towards the celebration of 2013 Easter Festival. During the donation at Abene, the Kontihene of Abene, mentioned that the Easter festival was not their annual Traditional festival and will be grateful if MTN could support their annual festival. Also he appealed to MTN to provide scholarships for their children.

Other activities sponsored by MTN  during Easter activities included the entertainment event dubbed ?MTN chill zone? at the Mpraeso school park featuring Samini, 4*4,  Naterial of MTN Hit Maker season 1 and the Shabo crew,  with Bola Ray as the MC. There were also pockets of entertainment experiences at varying locations in Kwahu.
