Michael Okyere Baafi, the Member of Parliament for New Juaben South in the Eastern Region of Ghana, has donated 150 tablets and other Information and Communications Technology (ICT) equipment to three basic schools within his constituency. The gesture is aimed at encouraging pupils to study ICT, particularly the practical aspect of it. The presentation ceremony was held last Tuesday, and the beneficiary schools, namely Nana Kwaku Boateng Basic ‘B’, Sarkodee M/A Basic ‘A’, and Nana Oware Agyapong M/A Basic School, each received 50 tablets, a computer, a projector, a charging cabinet, and other electronic gadgets.

According to Mr Baafi, the provision of the equipment was necessary because of the vital role ICT played in the learning process. He hopes that it will enhance the study of ICT within the constituency and enable the pupils to become ICT-inclined. All other basic schools within the constituency will also benefit from similar ICT equipment in the near future. The MP’s target is to cover all basic schools in the constituency to enable the pupils to have practical knowledge of ICT, which will help them build up their skills when they eventually attend senior high schools.

The New Juaben South Municipal Education Director, Alhaji Mustapha Haruna, expressed gratitude for the donation and said that the availability of ICT equipment to the pupils would put them at par with others using such equipment. This is because all pupils writing the Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) must have both the theoretical and practical knowledge of ICT. The headteacher of Sarkodee M/A Basic School, Elizabeth Owusu-Domfeh, who received the ICT equipment on behalf of her school, said the equipment had come at the right time.

Computer literacy has become the norm of the current changing world, said the Mawerehene of Nyamekrom, Nana Kwasi Adinkra Kosopre, who also commended the MP for presenting more of such equipment to other schools in the area. One of the pupils from Sarkodee M/A Basic School, Ebenezer Djabatey, a form 3 student, praised the MP for his gesture, which, he said, would go a long way to promote the teaching and learning of ICT in the school.

For the most part, the donation of ICT equipment by the MP will contribute significantly to the pupils’ knowledge and skills in ICT. It will also encourage and facilitate the learning of ICT in basic schools within the constituency, enabling the pupils to become better equipped for senior high schools.
