......to the Presbyterian University of Akropong

The Kwakwaduam Association of New York has donated a set of 10 Brand New Laptops, Computer Tables and Chairs worth about $7,500 to the Akropong Presbyterian University in Ghana as part of their global outreach program. The presentation was done on behalf of the Kwakwaduam Association by Dr. Kwame Aniapam Boafo a Consultant to the Organization and a past President. He stated that Kwakwaduam is determined to support Tertiary Education in Ghana and the donation of the computers to the University was a result of a fundraising effort of the Organization during its last year’s Dinner Dance. He thanked all Donors who made this possible and noted the critical role one Mr. Asare Manteaw plays in executing projects on behalf of the Organization in Ghana. Dr. Boafo traced his education from the humble beginnings of Akropong to where he is now and indicated to the students that with a dream, determination and hard work, anything was possible and that the computers were to facilitate this process. He sent greetings from the President of Kwakwaduam, Mr. Mark Saforo and the entire membership of the Kwakwaduam Organization and relayed the commitment of the Organization to continue to support the University. He said the Leadership of Mr. Mark Saforo was instrumental and germane in achieving this. Receiving the Computers on behalf of the school, The Assistant Registrar, Rev Kingsley Kumi Yeboah indicated his gratitude to Kwakwaduam for its foresight and noted that the Organization was one of the few Diasporian Organizations that consistently support programs at home. He indicated that the computers will be used for the benefit of the students and that it came in handy since the University was launching programs in Nursing and Education that were likely to attract more students. The Head of the IT Department was equally grateful as well the President of the Student Council who was elated and thanked Kwakwaduam immensely Kwakwaduam Association Inc. is a Non Profit Organization whose mission is to organize activities aimed at the educational, cultural, financial, socio-economic and health enhancement of its members and to extend the same to the community at large as well as engage a global outreach for the benefit of mankind.
