Ena Foundation, a non-profit organization, has donated examination materials to over 800 Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) candidates in two districts in the region.

The beneficiaries, who hail from Bolgatanga Municipality and Kassena-Nankana West Districts, received the materials ahead of the BECE examination  that begins today, Monday, July 8, 2024.

The donation is expected to alleviate some of the financial burdens on the students and their families, enabling them to focus on their academic preparations.

The Ena Foundation, known for its commitment to improving access to quality education in underprivileged communities, has been actively involved in supporting educational initiatives in the Upper East Region. This latest gesture is a testament to the organization’s dedication to empowering young people to achieve their full potential.

Addressing some of the BECE students at the Paga Senior High School in Kassena-Nankana West district, Grace Mawuena Koveh, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Ena Foundation, said, “2024 marks the Foundation’s fourth anniversary since the implementation of the ‘Pencil Up Project’ targeting BECE Candidates in the region.”

Mrs. Koveh said, “The Foundation does not only focus on helping the underprivileged in communities in the area of education but also considers other important sectors of the economy.”

“On education, the Foundation helps the less privileged, making an impact and inspiring young people like you, and that is why we are here today. Here is a little about the Foundation: we work in four areas, which are Education, Health, Agriculture, and Skill acquisition.”

The examination materials donated include mathematical sets, pens, pencils, and erasers, among other essential stationery items.

The beneficiary schools include Yikene J.H.S and Methodist J.H.S in the Bolgatanga municipality. In the Kassena-Nankana West district, the schools are Kajelo J.H.S, Baloo J.H.S, St. Michael J.H.S, T.I Ahmadiyya J.H.S, Paga A J.H.S, Paga B J.H.S, Cambridge J.H.S, Frontier J.H.S, Premier J.H.S, Tedam A J.H.S, Tedam B J.H.S, Paga E/A J.H.S, Sakaa J.H.S, Zerga J.H.S, Roveca J.H.S, and St. Theresa J.H.S.

The Ena Foundation’s Board Chairman, Ahmed Ara, used the opportunity to urge the BECE Candidates to be motivated by the materials donated to them by the foundation and to come out with flying colors. Mr. Ara challenged the students to perform well in order to encourage the Ena Foundation to do more in the coming years for their juniors.

The candidates expressed their gratitude to Ena Foundation for the timely support, which they believe will contribute significantly to their success in the examination.

The move has been praised by education stakeholders at the various donation centers. They acknowledge the critical role played by organizations like the Ena Foundation in complementing government efforts to improve the educational sector.
