The Rebecca Foundation has commissioned and handed over a newly constructed library in Kumawu to the Sekyere Kumawu District Assembly and the Ghana Library Authority in the Ashanti Region.
The library was built, furnished and resourced by the Rebecca Foundation, with the support of the Ghana Education Service, Ghana Library Authority and Book Aid International.
Recognising the role of literacy in education, the Rebecca Foundation has so far through the Learning to Read Reading to Learn initiative constructed, furnished, resourced and commissioned libraries in Wenchi in the Bono Region, Sefwi Debiso in the Western North Region, Moree in the Central Region, Daffiama Bussie Issah in the Upper West Region and Amansaman in the Greater Accra Region.
The soon-to-be-completed libraries at Bortianor in the Greater Accra Region and Dambai in the Oti Region will bring the total number of libraries constructed by the Rebecca Foundation to eight.
Meanwhile, the Rebecca Foundation has moved swiftly to support the sick and frail-looking 40-year-old woman, Georgina Yawa Ankrah, following a report on Tuesday.

Speaking to JoyNews, a representative from the foundation, Akua Asabea Kropa Maccarthy said when the First Lady saw the report by Ernestina Beryl Richter ''she was so sad to see her [Madam Yawa’s] situation.''
