Member of Parliament for Ayawaso North, Mr Yussif Jaja, has donated Gh¢2000 to Achievers Education Ghana, a charity organisation in his constituency.
The young NDC law maker made the presentation on Tuesday in support of the organisations’ aim in providing education for about 350 girls.
The organisation, through its aim, had launched a campaign for the 2018/2019 academic year dubbed “back to school supplies to Girls in need”, a project Mr Jaja described “a step in the right direction”
“This project is in the right direction as it prioritizes girl education in this constituency of ours,” he said.
“As the Member of Parliament for Ayawaso North, the Girl Child Education project has my full support since it will alleviate the suffering of parents.
“This will go a long way to promote the education of the girl child in this constituency.”
He commended the management of the organisation for taking the initiative to improve education and pointed out his readiness to assist them in any way he can to uplift the image of the community and the constituency as a whole.
“This Gh¢2000 donation is only for the 2018/19 academic year which we hope to give more in the subsequent years.
“I am delighted to present amount as a token of my support to ensuring that we train these pupils to become useful citizens in future’’,
Mr Jaja urged the school children to take their studies seriously in order to be useful to their family, community and country in the future.
According to Mr Jaja, the donation adds up to what has been given out in cash and stocks to a range of charitable causes.
He said scholarship had been awarded to 100 students in the Ayawaso North Constituency prior to this donation as well as other education facilities such as desks and mathematical sets to some schools.
He has initiated and sponsored an ongoing gala tournament with the aim of unearthing talents for the nation.
All these, he said forms part of his plans to “develop the constituency through education and Sports”.
