The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Geodrill, Mr David Harper, has presented a cheque for GH¢150,000 to the Old Achimota Association (OAA) for the purchase of equipment for the Achimota School science laboratory complex.
The President of the OAA and former Vice Chancellor of the University of Ghana, Professor Ernest Aryeetey, received the cheque on behalf of the association.
Also present at the presentation ceremony were some alumni of the school, the headmistress, teachers and students.
Importance of education
Speaking after the presentation, Mr Harper emphasised the importance of education to the students and expressed the hope that their education at the Achimota School, and particularly in science, would set them on the path to successful adult careers and to contribute meaningfully to the development of Ghana.
Mr Harper revealed a longstanding association with the school, where he used to play cricket, and encouraged other companies to take their environmental, social and governance (ESG) obligations seriously and support worthy institutions to fulfil their mission.
“Geodrill, a leading drilling exploration company in the mining sector, is committed to being a socially responsible company that actively promotes social causes such as the education of Ghanaian youth.
“The support for the laboratory complex is yet another purposeful outcomes-based Geodrill ESG initiative.
Support for the Achimota School science laboratory
According to Prof. Aryeetey, the science lab was constructed with the support of corporate sponsors who contributed about one-third of the total cost, and the remainder from Achimota alumni.
“The OAA and Achimota were still hopeful of receiving further contributions from other companies to sustainably fund the provision of science education and other programmes for the benefit of the students,” he said.
Prof. Aryeetey conducted Mr Harper around the science laboratory complex after the presentation ceremony.
