Karpowership Ghana Company Limited has supported 102 brilliant but needy students from the Tema Manhean Community.
This forms part of the Company’s commitment to contribute to the communities within which it operates.
The beneficiaries were selected across five different schools: Manhean Presbyterian Primary A and B, Manhean TMA JHS 1 and 2, and the Manhean Community Primary School.
Speaking at the presentation ceremony, Corporate Communication Specialist for Karpowership Ghana Company Limited, Sandra Amarquaye, said the company’s commitment to the society goes beyond the provision of efficient and affordable electricity.
This year in addition to offering Scholarship, the company introduced a mentorship program for the community school, where students were taken through various subjects including financial literacy, the job market and its requirements, as well as gender equality.
The headmaster of Manhean TMA JHS 1, Ransford Nunoo said, “we are pleased with Karpowership’s move to support education in the Manhean Community.
“There exist the proclivity of some brilliant students falling through the cracks and not completing school because of the lack of funds and the absence of guidance and purpose.”
He awarded that the scholarships coupled with the mentorship program are a move in the right direction in terms of its impact on the student community.
Since the beginning of Karpowership’s operations in Ghana, the company has consistently supported the Tema Manhean Community in the areas of community development and education.
The company would relocate its 450MW Karadeniz Powership Osman Khan to the Sekondi Naval Base in order to utilize the gas resources in the Western enclave, next year in accordance with the Ministry of Energy’s project schedule.
Karpowership is committed to supplying Ghana with efficient, reliable and affordable energy.
