Hon. Queenstar Maame Pokuah Sawyerr, Member of Parliament for Agona East, has promised that she will take care of students who are in need of financial assistance to further their education.
Hon. Pokuah Sawyerr, affectionately called ‘Obaatanpa,’ made the promise at the first graduation of the Salvation Army Basic School at Agona Duakwa in the Central Region.
Hon. Sawyerr was in her constituency last Thursday, July 27, to perform basic functions required of her.
She was at the school to grace the occasion, and, as a mark of her concern for the welfare of the children, Obaatanpa provided educational materials, as well as packaged lunch of jollof rice and chicken for all the 527 children.
She also donated a handsome amount to the school and promised financial assistance to the needy children who will excel.
It is worth mentioning that a modern six-unit classroom block is currently under construction for the children at the initiative of the MP.
Again, Obaatanpa was at the Duakwa Islamic School in fulfillment of a promise to spend time each year with school children during their “Our Day” period.
Maame Pokuah interacted with the children close to 300 and provided them packaged lunch of jollof rice and chicken, plus educational materials to support learning.
The parents of the children were present in their numbers to welcome and cheer up Obaatanpa in recognition of her hard work.
To round up the programme, Maame Pokuah inaugurated new members of the Mahama Ladies Club, gave them words of encouragement and made a cash donation to support their activities.
