“Thank You Otumfuo For Being Mindful Of Us”; Beneficiary Of OAMLP

A student of the Essuowin Methodist Junior High School (JHS), Opoku Paul has conveyed a message of gratitude to Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, the Asantehene, Agroecom Ghana Limited, and players in the Otumfuo-Agroecom Mobile Learning Project (OAMLP) for making a stop at his school in the 2022 edition of the project.

In an interview after the two-week program came to a successful end at Essuowin in the Amansie West District on Friday, February 25, 2022, Paul noted that the challenges of his school, just like in many other rural schools, was capped with the practical lessons they obtained through the project.

Each student was fitted with the opportunity before a laptop and GES-recommended reading books.

“For the past two weeks that the Otumfuo-Agroecom Mobile Learning Project team have been here, they have been of great help to us. We have been taught reading strategies. Each student got a laptop for the practice”, Paul said.

In a heart-melting message to Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, he said, “Thank you Otumfuo for being mindful of us and coming to our aid. God bless you.”

Still, in the OAMLP team’s last point of call in Essuowin- the Essuowin Methodist Junior High School (JHS)- Anita Appiah, a JHS 2 student also indicated that the impact of the project was remarkable.

“We didn’t have the practical tools for ICT and we didn’t have reading books. Through the initiative of Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, we have been equipped with all the requisite knowledge. Thank you Otumfuo.”

Showing appreciation, the headmistress of the school, Mrs. Barbara Hephoza said, “We thank Otumfuo for giving us such a quality session. ICT has ever since been theory alone in this community but with this Mobile Learning Program, the pupils have gotten the experience in computing. The pupils have learned reading strategies and the essence of reading. We thank Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, Agroecom, and the players in this project. We hope this doesn’t be the last”.

The OAMLP is an initiative of the Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II Foundation, (OOTIIF), sponsored by licensed Cocoa Buying Company, Agroecom, with the aim of “bridging the gap between rural and urban education”. Last year the project reached 206 communities in the Ashanti region.

The outreach in Essuowin began on February 14, fetching students in the community the needed knowledge in ICT, Reading, and Community Cinema sessions.
