Tigo Ghana has presented its fourth school block to management of Dimabi

Nursery and Primary School in Tolon Kumbumgu of the Northern Region.

This forms part of Tigo Ghana?s new Corporate Social Responsibility programme

dubbed ?Shelter 4 Education? where six deprived communities in the country

without good educational infrastructures are given the opportunity to own

one. The renovated edifice at Dimabi Nursery and Primary School includes six

classrooms, a headmaster?s office, staff common room and public place of

convenience.

The poor state of education in the community is mostly attributed to lack of

good educational facilities. A situation that has not only affected the quality of

education, but also served as a disincentive for parents to send their wards to

school.

?Parents in this farming community prefer to have their children assist them

with farming than allow them to learn under what they describe as horrible

structures?, said the headmaster Issifu Abubakari.

Due to poor educational structures in the area most teachers assigned to the

village by the Ghana Education Service are quick to turn down the offer. This

development has had negative impact on the community and thus contributed

to the migration of young school children to major urban centres in the

country for greener pastures.

Tigo passionately believes that education holds the key to success for every

nation. The Shelter 4 Education project initiative in deprived communities is

Tigo?s way of contributing to the lives of children who are potential future

leaders of Ghana and the world.

The Director of Corporate Communications and CSR, Gifty Bingley, said helping

children get quality basic education is important because it is the foundation to

shaping their dreams and ensuring they help build a better Ghana.

?We hope that by providing them with a conducive learning environment, they

can concentrate on their studies to ensure a brighter future?, she said.

The provision of the new school block by Tigo Ghana for the people of Dimabi

will enable children in this farming community to work towards their dreams.
