Disabled Shoe Maker Uses His N.g.o To Present Educational Materials To School.

Considering the challenges he has underwent through as a disabled young man following his parents inability to give him the necessary education or trade, and in his quest to ensure that such unpalatable challenges never confront other children, Mr. Eric Andoh a citizen of Nyankomase Ahenkro in the Central Region has make a move forward to solve the canker


And to realize his noble mission, he is using his Non Governmental Organization (N. G. O) dubbed, Support For Needy Foundation to champion the cause.


On Monday October 4, 2021 the organization presented educational materials, sweets and undisclosed sum money to the God's Glory Preparatory School at Assin Jakai in the Assin South District in the Central Region.


Making the presentation, the Chief Executive Officer of Support For Needy Foundation, Mr. Eric Andoh said his organization was founded about three years ago with the aim to give both social and financial support to the needy especially school children whose parents cannot afford their education, the less previleged who intends to learn employable skills and among others, orphans.


Andoh said as a disabled person who works as a shoe maker, he knows what life entails if one is not supported from the infanthood, hence the idea for the formation of the Foundation to give support, believing further that since the children are the future leaders their initial development cannot be underrated.


He cited that since the establishment of the Foundation, the outfit has been able to offer free apprenticeship training to thirty young boys and girls in the areas of dress making, decorations and soap making after which machines or seed monies are given to the graduated apprentices to start up their own small businesses.


He said his current challenges are financial to expand his workshop currently occupied by thirty apprentices, and was hopeful that government will come to his aid to encourage him to do more


On his part, the headteacher of the school, Mr. Benard Sam (aka Shark) expressed his gratitude to Mr Andoh for the gesture indicating that the items have come at the right time where the pupils needed them most.


Shark promised to share the items equally in line with the mission in which the goods were donated, and appealed to philanthropists, Non-governmental and other well meaning Ghanaians to emulate the shining example of the Support For Needy Foundation by a way of extending aids to the school to realize its agenda.
