The United Clergy International Association (UCIA) has set out to enhance dilapidated and unsightly basic school buildings.
UCIA announced the initiative during her 8th Global Achievers’ Awards ceremony held at the St. Louis College of Education in the Ashanti regional capital, Kumasi.
This year’s awards is under the theme Being an ethical leader in an unethical world.
Apostle Stephen Asante, Principal at the Higher Heights Theological Seminary, who announced a fundraiser to help the initiative revealed that UCIA has decided to focus first on schools in the Volta region of Ghana as many schools there have been found to be in bad condition.
He explained that they will mainly paint the schools and make the buildings nicer and more appealing in order to boost the morale of the pupils in such schools towards academic work. “We all know that even colour has a great effect on the mind” he recounted.
He called on all well-meaning Ghanaians to reach out and contribute to this initiative to help keep kids in school and help them fall in love with teaching and learning early in life.
