The Chamber joined United Way Ghana to launch of the Nyansapo Literacy Project at the Ayebeng A &B Memorial Basic School in the Greater Accra Region of Ghana.
The Nyansapo Literacy Project is a United Way Ghana initiative which is sponsored by the American Chamber of Commerce, Ghana, to promote childhood literacy at the Ayebeng Memorial Primary School in Accra. The launch will kick start a weekly literacy engagement of students in lower primary and make reading books available in every classroom to encourage reading among students.
Speaking at the event, AmCham Ghana Executive Secretary, Simon Madjie, said the Chamber exists to promote investment between Ghana and the United States but also takes a keen interest in educating the future businessmen and women who will take charge of these investments. He said the Chamber is pleased to sponsor the Nyansapo Literacy Project and will be willing to offer further support in the future.
A major component of the project – ‘Library In A Box’ was presented to the school. Each class in the school was given a box of books to make materials accessible & inspire reading culture in pupils.
