Indian Association presents 4-unit classroom to Santeo School

The Indian Association of Ghana, with support from the RSKC Foundation and SEVA Group of Ghana, has handed over a four-unit classroom block to the Power House International School at Santeo in the Ashaiman municipality.

The association constructed the school block at a cost of Gh?425,000 for the underprivileged as part of a social responsibility.

At a ceremony to hand over the block, the Director of the school, Reverend Joseph Kyei-Baah said the school was started at Adjirigano in East Legon in 2007 to offer free education for the less privileged.

He said the school currently has a population of 250 pupils, 12 teaching and three non-teaching staff.

Rev. Joseph said the school's biggest challenge was lack of classrooms for the pupils and commended the Indian Association of Ghana for coming to its aid.

The President of the Indian Association of Ghana, Mr Rajesh Thakker said the construction of the school block was one of many projects the association has undertaken across the country and added that it was determined to do more.

The Deputy Minister of Education, Barbara Asher Ayisi commended the association for the donation and said the free senior high school education policy being implemented by government was not a mere political talk.

She lauded the India Association of Ghana, RSKC Foundation and the Seva Group of Ghana for the gesture and charged the school authorities to ensure the structure was duly maintained.
