As I Grow, a non-governmental organisation which is based in Larteh- Akuapem in the Eastern Region has decided to support, educate and provide a lifeline for the deprived communities and schools in the area.
Exclusive information disclosed to YEN.com.gh indicates that barely two weeks ago, the organisation visited some schools in the Akuapem North municipality.
The schools are, Behenase R/C Basic and Atabui M/A school where all students both primary and junior high schools were given face masks.
This gesture, according to the leader of the organization, Debrah Bekoe, is mainly because the deprived communities are usually left behind in terms of educational, social amenities, and infrastructural development.
He added that although the government has done a lot, more needs to be done on the side of the citizens, that is parents, opinion leaders, stakeholders, and other organisations.
Samuel Larbi, the vice secretary of the organisation has also pleaded with individuals, stakeholders, and institutions to come in to support AIG to embark on other projects that will free the deprived communities of poverty.
