The GreenPatures Tph Church has donated some items to the Opportunity Industrilization Cenre,OIC to support students with practical works. OIC which was established 50 years lack equipment students needed for practical work.
Being in the same community the GreenPatures Tph Church decided to donate to OIC as part of the Church’ s Corporate and Social Responsibility of giving back to society.
Items donated are Double Decker Fridge, Sewing Machine, Spade, wheel Barrow and Head pans. Others are helmet, Reflective Jackets, Straight edge and lines.
Presenting the items Public Relations Officer of Green Pastures Tph Pastor Kingsley Kumah explained that the donation forms part of the Church’s first Anniversary adding that the Church will continue to support the school.
“We are making a token as our initial deposit as contribution and quota to OIC. This will not be the last of it all. This is just the beginning. We pray that every year, so long as God give us life and GreenPatures increases, we will see more and more of these things you see here” Pastor Kumah stated.
The PRO indicated that even though OIC is a training and vocational school, it lack lot of things.
He called on government and individuals to support OIC since they can become their own bosses after completion.
For his part ,Head Pastor of GreenPatures Tph Church Rev Daniel Dake noted that even though the school is situated in an influential community, it has lot of challenges . Rev Dake explained that the donation is to highlight the need for churches and other institutions to look into their communities to see if there are interventions they can give to them.
Centre Manager of OIC Mawuli Sogbey thanked GreenPatures Tph Church and called on others to emulate the gesture since the school is hard pressed for money even though OIC is contributing so much to the society .
“Running technical and vocational school is not easy. we need to buy equipment for their practical works . The fees here too are subsidized. so the donation will really help” Mr Sogbey stated.
