The Member of Parliament for the Asuogyaman constituency, Hon. Thomas Ampem Nyarko spent time reading with Basic 3 to 6 pupils of Anum Presby Primary A, Anum Presby Primary B, Anum Anglican Primary, and Anum Anglican D/A Schools in the Ausugyaman District.
“Children are more than we think they are; they can do more than we think they can do. All they need is a vote of confidence from grownups, whom they will ultimately replace anyway. Their dream today will become the realities of tomorrow.” ― Wess Stafford
According to Hon. Ampem Nyarko, it is in this spirit that, he launched the “Let’s Read Together” project some three weeks ago to help develop the reading ability and public confidence in our little children.
In company with him were, the Asuogyaman District Director of Education; Madam Augustina Adwoa Owusu, the District Pastor of the Presbyterian Church; Rev. Isaac Ababio and the Chaplain of Anum Presbyterian Senior High School; Rev. John K. Atta-Donkor who also doubles as the second minister of the Anum Presbyterian Church. We took turns to read a passage titled “Kwaku Ananse and Abebe the Grasshopper” written by S.Y Manu together with the children, after which they were made to answer questions and awards given to them.
The team was accompanied by officials of “Worldreader”, an educational NGO. The officials said, they had heard of the reading program and think it’s consistent with their aim of operation, so they’re interested in supporting it.
From the reading program, the lawmaker visited Anum Presbyterian Vocational and Technical Institute to donate to the school five(5) pieces of Street Lights to help reduce the poor lightening situation the school currently faces.
He expressed his sincere gratitude to all that have been supportive of this program so far especially the District Director of Education, Madam Augustina Adwoa Owusu, and all teachers across Asuogyaman District.
Finally, he called on the constituents to come together to build Asuogyaman.
