In a joint effort to promote quality education, Empower Playgrounds and the Interact Club of Tema International School (TIS) have donated 10 equipped desktop computers and Rachel plus router to Obosono D/A Basic school in the Akuapem South district of the Eastern Region.

“We want to ensure that the equipment is used effectively and efficiently, so we will be exploring measures to ensure their durability and extend their lifespan.” The country director, Mr. Isaac Darko-Mensah stated.

A representative of the Interact Club of Tema International School said, “This presentation aligns with our values of community development, and we are proud to support the educational journey of these students. We believe that education is the key to unlocking potential, and we are committed to supporting initiatives that promote quality education.”

The teaching staff, proprietors, and students expressed their gratitude to Empower Playgrounds and the Interact Club of Tema International School for the support.

According to the students, “The equipment will encourage us to pursue and explore more in the field of technology. We call on entities, individuals, and the government to provide sustainable learning materials and equipment.”
