The 2017/2018 National Service Group of the CAL Bank has constructed a five-bedroom edifice for the Royal Seed Orphanage at Kwao-Bondzie in the Central Region.
The NSS personnel took over the cost of the entire project using their monthly allowances.
President of the group, Donaldson Adu Gyamfi, explained that monies were deducted from the allowance of each personnel to fund the project.

According to him, they took this step after they visited the orphanage and realised it lacked the necessary infrastructure.
He said their decision to build the five-bedroom edifice is part of their service to “God and country.”
“When we came here for the first time, the disabled children at this orphanage were sleeping on a wooden structure, the rest of the Children had no place to sleep.
“It was very disturbing that’s why we decided to build this five-bedroom house for them as part of our service to God and our country,” Mr. Adu Gyamfi said.
The building has officially been handed over to the co-founder of Royal Seed Orphanage Naomi Esi-Amoah, and the queenmother of Awushie Tetteh, Naatse Ashorkor.
The project is estimated to have been built at a cost of GH¢70,000.
Naomi Esi Amoah expressed her gratitude to the service personnel and made a further call on institutions and individuals to support the orphans who have no family to cater for them.
Meanwhile, the Deputy Executive Director of National Service Scheme, Kwaku Ohene Gyan, also urged NSS personnel to serve the country with diligence.
“National Service is the time to contribute to the nation’s development by serving with the knowledge you acquired through the years of education,” he stated.
