The Member of Parliament for Adansi Asokwa and some other philanthropists have pledged to provide some computers to the Volta region school that is planning some drastic measures to improve ICT education.

The donation follows a Joy News report about the Adidokpoe Methodist School in Battor in the Volta region that says it wants to fell about fifty trees on the school compound to burn enough charcoal to buy its first computer.

The school authorities believe this would halt the poor performance of the pupils at the BECE.

Peter Sarpong’s report captured the headmaster of the school as saying the students have to cut the trees on the school’s compound to burn charcoal, sell and raise money to buy a computer for the school.

The ICT teacher of the school lamented the difficulties in teaching the subject in abstract.

After the report was aired, the Adansi Asokwa MP, one of several philanthropists, came forward to offer some help.

KT Hammond told Joy News he will provide the school with three computers. He says he is touched by the commitment of the pupils and teachers.
