The subsidiary in charge of social change and charity works under the Twellium Industrial Company, Twellium Foundation, has handed over a newly constructed two-unit classroom and washrooms to the people of Dzabukpo near Sogakope in the Volta Region.
In addition to the classroom unit was a cassava mile machine (for gari processing) to aid the community in processing their cassava farm produce since farming is a popular occupation and the main source of income for the residents of Dzabukpo.
Made possible by the Twellium Foundation in partnership with One For The Road; a charity organization that shares in the same vision of quality education and livelihood, the new structures are estimated to be worth thousands of Ghana cedis,
Twellium Foundation Managing Director and head of Marketing, Twellium Industrial Limited, producers of Verna Natural Mineral Water, Mr Ali Ajami said at the handing over ceremony that “We at Twellium Foundation believe in quality education, hence the construction of this facility. We are considering completing the primary block and constructing the JHS blocks in the coming months.
“We want to thank Verna Mineral Water consumers for choosing and believing in our products; as l keep saying, a fraction of money from every bottle water you purchase go into projects like these, thanks for choosing Verna, we promise to do more.”
The headmaster of the school established in 1961, Mr Gershon Dordor expressed profuse thanks to Twellium Foundation and On The Road for the facilities saying, “We are most grateful for this, as you know, structures play paramount roles for better education. The beginning of education is the kindergarten stage where they used to gather under a tree. Whenever there is a rainfall, we don’t have classes, so we are indeed grateful.”
The District Director of education, Henry Kwarshie Hevi commended Twellium Foundation for the facilities, appealed for educational materials and a vehicle to make officials of the school mobile and suggested to other corporate organizations to emulate Twellium Foundation’s shining example.
