Their report highlighted the deplorable state of the school’s infrastructure, and immediately, the leadership team at AGROCROWN adopted this as a project”, she said.
“We must recognize that this project is not just about walls and roofs but about the potential that lies within these walls. It is about the knowledge that will be acquired, the dreams that will be nurtured, and the leaders who will emerge from these classrooms in the next few years”, she added.
Madam Pearl Gborglah, while calling on the staff and community members to pay good attention to the facility and ensure it is put to good use, also encouraged the pupils in the school to take their studies seriously to enable them secure a better future.
On his part, the Tolon District Chief Executive, Honorable Salifu Issifu Moshei, whose speech was read on his behalf, expressed appreciation to Agrocrown West Africa for its diverse assistance, especially in the area of supporting and enhancing quality education in the district.
