Presbyterian Church of Ghana donates GHC50, 000 to Kwamang PRESEC for clinic project.
The Presbyterian Church of Ghana, (PCG) has donated an amount of fifty thousand Ghana cedis (GH₵50,000) to the Presbyterian Senior High School, Kwamang in the Nsuta District of the Ashanti Region for the construction of a clinic for the school.
Presenting the cheque to the Chairperson of the Sekyere Presbytery of the PCG, Rev Dr. Daniel Osei Bediako-Akoto on Tuesday 25th February 2020 at the school, the Moderator of the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana, the Rt. Reverend Prof. Joseph Obiri Yeboah Mante, reiterated the Church’s commitment to its educational institutions and promised that other institutions of the Church would also receive similar financial support in due course.
The Moderator was in the school as part of his pastoral visit to the Sekyere Presbytery of the PCG to acquaint himself with the mission work in the area.
Addressing the students of the school, the Moderator advised them to take advantage of the many educational interventions by the Presbyterian Church of Ghana and the Government’s Free SHS policy to build a good future for themselves.
The Moderator asked the students to exhibit a high level of discipline which is a core value of the PCG and eschew all forms of social vices.
He urged both the students and staff to live a Christ-like life and look up to God for support and enablement.
Rt. Rev. Prof. Mante assured them that, God would empower anyone who looks up to Him just as the sun empowers the eagle.
The Moderator touted the contribution of the Presbyterian Church in Ghana’s education, saying, “the Church was the first to establish formal education in the country”.
He said the PCG currently has over 2,400 basic schools, about 30 Senior High Schools, 5 Colleges of Education, 3 Vocational Schools, 4 nursing and midwifery training colleges, A University, Two Research Institutes, and five Training Centers.
Rt. Rev Prof. Mante noted that apart from the Presbyterian University College, the Church also has the Akrofi Christaller Institute for Theology and Missions which is the first private university to get a Presidential Charter to award Doctorate Degree.
The Headmistress of the school, Madam Margaret Twum expressed appreciation to the Moderator and the PCG for the intervention.
She promised to invest the money in the project for which it was given in order. She also pledged to adopt a good maintenance culture of the facility when completed.
The Moderator used the occasion to cut sod for the start of construction works of the clinic project.
