The Bulk Oil Storage and Transportation (BOST) Company has donated books to 7 government schools in the Bolgatanga Municipality of the Upper East Region where the company’s Bolgatanga depot is located. The beneficiary schools are Anglican KG, Anglican Primary School, Anglican JHS, Tindonsobligo 31st December KG, Kalbeo-Tindonsobligo KG, Kalbeo-Tindonsobligo Primary Sch and Kalbeo-Tindonsobligo JHS. In all, 10, 000 books were distributed to the students with each student receiving 5 exercise books each. 

Yaw Antwi Dadzie, Government Relations, Corporate Social Responsibility, and Protocol Manager at BOST said the donation exercise was geared towards supporting education in the communities where BOST operates.

“A little over a year ago, we came to the communities to identify the government schools that are surrounding our depot. We believe that these are our immediate impacted communities should anything good or bad happens to the company. As a government institution that is doing something good in the communities, we believe that one of the best ways to help the communities is to impact the area of education”, he stated. 

He said the donation exercise which started at the beginning of the year covered areas such as Buipe, Savelugu, and Debre is part of a 100,000 exercise books donation project to all government primary and Junior High schools in the company’s operational area. 

The Government Relations, CSR & Protocol Manager was addressing students and staff of the Anglican Junior High School where the company started its donation exercise in Bolgatanga. In attendance were the Manager, in charge of Corporate Communications, BOST, Salifu Nat Achempong, and other key staff.

Mr. Dadzie mentioned that the company plays a priority on quality education and it will do all it can to improve the standards of education in the country, especially in communities it operates.

He revealed that 7 students in the Bolgatanga Municipality of the Upper East Region are part of 50 needy but brilliant students studying different engineering courses at the University of Mines and Technology under the company’s scholarship program.

 “These students are being given Ghc275,000.00 worth of scholarship per year and it is running for four years and so, that is about Ghc1.5 million. The other areas we are also looking at are the area of health, infrastructure development, and environmental support. We believe that we need to start from somewhere, we can’t do everything in a day. As we grow and the company does well and become more profitable, we believe there are more areas that we need to touch”, he added. 

Paulina Abem, the Headmistress of the Anglican Junior High School thanked the Bulk Oil Storage and Transportation (BOST) Company for the gesture saying it would go a long way to improve teaching and learning. 

She used the opportunity to appeal to the company and other corporate organizations to establish a computer laboratory to facilitate the study of Information and Communications Technology (ICT). Madam Abem also requested the construction of a toilet facility to replace two dilapidated toilet facilities that collapsed.
