Accra The Mensah Sarbah Hall Alumni Association of the University of Ghana would provide logistics to students who would volunteer to teach in the deprived areas during the long vacation.
The Association, in partnership with the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), had also set up an Endowment Fund to support the poor but brilliant students to complete their courses.
Mr Francis Nyonyo, the President of the Association, disclosed this at the end of this year’s ‘Mponsuo’ celebration at Legon in Accra, which brings the students together to clean their environment and strategise for the growth of their Hall.
He said the Association, in collaboration with Nyonyo Foundation,had put in place a scholarship fund for Political Science students, adding that it would also put up an office complex, complete the Annex ‘C’ Block, the Reading Room and refurbish the library.
Mr Nyonyo, also a Member of the Council of State, said plans were advanced to revamp the Association, which had been dormant for some time now.
He said the Hall had produced many great men including Professor Kwesi Yankah and Dr Ibn Chambas.
He urged the University Teachers Association of Ghana to use dialogue to address their grievances instead of resorting to strike.
Mr Nyonyo applauded the Government for the bold decision taken to make senior high school education free.
