GNPC Pledges Educational and Infrastructural Support to Apeatse Community

GNPC Pledges Educational and Infrastructural Support to Apeatse Community

The Ghana National Petroleum Corporation (GNPC) has through their social corporate responsibilities, tied down plans to construct 6-unit and 3-unit classroom blocks to serve as Primary and Junior High schools respectively, to support the rebuilding of Apeatse community, a suburb of Bogoso in the Western Region of Ghana.

The community which was declared a crime scene by the Ghana Police Service now lies in ruins after it was hit by an explosion caused by a vehicle reportedly transporting explosives last week.

This was made known by the Executive Director of the GNPC Foundation, Dr. Dominic Kwesi Eduah, when he visited the chiefs and community leaders to assess the current state of the community and its people with considerations on possible areas of intervention to help rebuild the community.  

The GNPC Foundation which spearheads the Corporation’s CSR mandate has said that it will also, under a special dispensation program, support families in the area by enrolling qualified students from Apeatse unto its scholarship program to lessen the financial burden of parents in the area.

To support the lives of the people, Dr. Eduah indicated that despite the tragic incident, the education of children in the community could not be put on hold and hence the decision to facilitate the quick return to academic life and also support their wards who are qualified to study in various disciplines at the undergraduate and postgraduate degree levels.

The engagement with the community’s leaders also revealed that the community lacked a befitting toilet facility and used a dilapidated mud structure to serve that purpose. The GNPC Foundation will also, therefore, construct a new 12-unit sanitary facility to improve health and hygiene conditions.

Dr. Isaac Dasmani, the Municipal Chief Executive of Prestea Huni Valley, on behalf of the chiefs and people, thanked GNPC for the support and pledged his office’s collaboration to ensure the community is rebuilt and survivors supported to regain their livelihoods.
