Message from Odeefoo Oteng Korankye II, Chief of Berekuso, Twafohene of Akwapem
When I first became Chief of Berekuso, the existing school building leaked any time it rained, and the wind would blow off parts of the roof. Students and teachers suffered a lot. But together with the elders of the village, we acquired 17 acres of land for a new school compound and successfully lobbied the District Assembly for funding to build a new school structure.
As the school formed, a new challenge developed. With teachers having to commute from Accra to the school, they were often late or absent. So, several years later, I applied to the European Union and received funds to build teacher accommodation near the school. Over the years I have continued to work with the community to organize support for the school and pupils. We have provided classroom furniture and assistance with sports day, such as providing jerseys, transport, and prizes. For several years I have paid pupils’ BECE exam fees and provided transport to the examination center.
I believe that education is the path to a prosperous Bereksuo. In 2011, Berekuso welcomed Ashesi University to our community. Ashesi University shares my belief in the positive impact on development through quality education. However, in order for children from Berekuso and the surrounding area to earn acceptance to Ashesi university, or any tertiary institution, the quality of basic education in the town must improve, and bright but needy children from poor families need financial support to complete their secondary education. That is why I have founded the Odeefoo Oteng Korankye II Education Fund.
Please join me in supporting educational achievement for the children of Berekuso towards a brighter future for our community.
– Nana Oteng Korankye II
