MTN Schools Pupils of Ankaful Mental M/A Basic School

Telecommunication giant, MTN has organized a day’s ICT training for pupils in Ankaful Mental M/A Basic School in the Komenda Edina Eguafo Abrem Municipality of the Central Region.

The training forms part of MTN’s 21day Y’ello care, which is a staff voluntary activity, which takes MTN staff to communities to provide resources including Information Communication and Technology (ICT) training among other activities.

This year’s Y’ello care is being held under the theme; “empowering communities for Economic Recovery”. Hence, the training aims at empowering the pupils in basic ICT skills to complement teaching and learning.

The Western and Central Regional Human Resource Partner for MTN, Regina Arkaifie speaking to the media, stated that “the MTN team presented a laptop to the School to encourage the students to take keen interest in the learning of ICT”.

She called on the students to take advantage of the training and make good use of the knowledge acquired.
The Head Mistress of Ankaful Mental M/A Basic School, Rosemary Woode disclosed that “the school cannot boast of even one computer, though the school teaches ICT”.
“We teach the children in abstract, sometimes, the ICT teacher brings his laptop, other times we draw the things on the board”.
