In a remarkable gesture of generosity and community commitment, the Conference of Heads of Basic Schools (COHBS), Sekondi-Takoradi Metro Chapter, unveiled a pivotal project on Wednesday, 22nd November, 2023.
A gleaming 2-unit toilet facility, constructed within a swift two-month period, was donated to the Sekondi-Takoradi Metro Education Directorate.
Led by Mr. Clement Afrane, Chairman of COHBS, STMA Chapter, the initiative addressed the challenge faced by officers who previously had to trek approximately 1.5 kilometers to access essential facilities at the Takoradi-CapeCoast lorry terminal from the Education office.
The formal handover ceremony was a moment of unity and appreciation.
Mrs. Sally Nelly Coleman, the Metro Director of Education, graciously accepted the facility.
In her acknowledgment speech, she lauded the visionary leadership of COHBS and commended the collective effort of all Basic School headteachers within the Metropolitan Authority for their thoughtful contribution.
With a keen eye for sustainability, Mrs. Coleman entrusted the responsibility of the facility's upkeep to Mr. Samuel Ackah, the School Health and Environment Program (SHEP) Coordinator.
Emphasizing the importance of a meticulous maintenance schedule, she underscored its role in ensuring the longevity of the project.
Moreover, the event witnessed an additional act of generosity as the Kindergarten Teachers Association within the Directorate seized the opportunity to donate an assortment of essential sanitary materials to the office, further enriching the support provided.
The significance of this gift extends beyond its physical presence, symbolizing the spirit of collaboration and dedication toward enhancing the working environment for educators and staff within the Sekondi-Takoradi Metro Education Directorate.
This charitable endeavor by COHBS serves as a beacon of community-driven progress and exemplifies the power of collective goodwill in addressing local needs.
