Rotary Club of Kumasi East builds borehole for Ejisu R/C School

Ejisu (Ash)- The Rotary Club of Kumasi East, has inaugurated a 3,000 litre capacity mechanised borehole for the pupils of Ejisu Roman Catholic (RC) basic schools and the people in its immediate environs.

Mr Kwadwo Dei-Agyemang, President of the Club, speaking at a ceremony to hand over the project, said the borehole which costs USD$6,900 was constructed after a community assessment needs was done in the area.

The Rotary Club, he said, was committed to helping communities with sanitation, educational and other developmental projects to address some of the challenges facing the people.

He urged community members to become people of action with a communal spirit to move forward.

Mr Dei-Agyemang said plans were underway to form a Rotary Community Corps at Ejisu, which would be responsible for addressing communal issues and liaise with the parent Rotary Club for projects initiation and implementation.

He advised the school authorities and the community members to exercise good maintenance culture of the project.

Mr Peter Adom Agyemang, the Head Teacher, of the school, commended the Rotary Club of Kumasi East for the water project and pledged that it would be put to good use.

He stated that the provision of the borehole would not only help to provide the pupils with potable water, but would also improve the sanitary conditions in the school.

He called on other benevolent groups and stakeholders to assist the school with dual desks and computer sets to serve the over 800 pupils in the school.
