Refurbishment of Oguaa SDA Basic School 2021


Refurbishment of Oguaa SDA Basic School 2021

Africa Women Rising (AWR) in partnership with Jehovah Jir-eh Ministries, a US
based church with a desire to support underprivileged children paid a working
visit to Oguaa SDA Basic School in the Ashanti Region on October 11, 2021, as part
of its Youth Empowerment strategy.

We at AWR believe the youth are the next generation of leaders and it is
therefore important for them to be impacted early so they are equipped properly
for future professions.

As custom demands, we started our visit from the Chiefs Palace to pay respects to
the chief of the town and to tell them about the intentions of AWR.

We then proceeded to the Oguaa SDA Basic School to meet the students, interact
and make donations to them. The donations were in two fold;

  • Cash
  • Kind

Cash donations were made to the Headmaster of the school, Pastor Robert
Adomako for the general upkeep of the school.

The donations in kind to the students comprised back-to-school packs. It included;

  • Books
  • Pens
  • Pencils
  • Erasers
  • Sharpeners
  • Socks
  • Rulers
  • Lunch boxes
  • Backpacks

After the presentation, the students were admonished to study hard as they are
the future leaders of this country and more especially to ensure they have a
better future.

AWR assured them of continuous support in the coming years in collaboration
with Jehovah Jir-eh and other organizations.

Finally, an anonymous benefactor decided to sponsor a girl age five (5) until she
achieves her first degree.
