KPMG, the oldest auditing and consulting firm in the country has donated 20 new computers to the Dzorwulu Junior High School in Accra.
The donation is the second phase of a three year partnership which began in May, 2016, to support the school by improving some of the teaching and learning facilities.
For the phase one of the project, KPMG provided items including chairs and tables, formica boards for the JHS 1 Classrooms and a formica board for outdoor teaching.
It is to compliment government’s efforts to make the school one of the convenient and safe environments for teaching and learning.
“This partnership is in line with our value and commitment to support our communities,” Managers of the company said in a statement.
KPMG, in July last year, renovated a classroom to be used as a computer lab to provide the school with a state of the art ICT centre.
“Information technology is key in our nation’s development and it is of essence that our children are given the firm foundation that they require in their early formative years,” the statement said.
The provision of the brand new desktop which is the second phase of the project was achieved through voluntary contributions from partners and staff of the company.
The total cost of the project was close to GHS100,000.
“We believe that our support will go a long way to improve standards of facilities in the school to enhance teaching and learning,” the statement said.
