MCOTTLEY CAPITAL, an investment bank, through its charity arm, McOttley Empowerment Foundation, has constructed a three-seater modern bio-fill toilet facility for the pupils of the Nkawkaw Methodist Primary ‘B’ School.
The school, which has been in existence since 1973, had no toilet facility for the over 200 pupils.
The GHȼ18,000 modern facility forms part of McOttley Capital’s corporate social responsibility initiatives to meet the needs of members of the society.
In a brief address to officially hand over the facility to the school, the Managing Director of McOttley Capital, Mrs Happy Forson, said McOttley Capital, as part of its corporate social responsibility support scheme, decided to build the facility for the school.
“We believe in empowering our children and by so doing, we would want them to have access to these basic facilities which will enable them to stay in school during learning periods,” Mrs Forson stated.
She said McOttley believes that the best way to contribute to the progress of society or the country is to support projects in such communities even though “we don’t have offices in such locations.”
She urged the school and community to keep the facility clean in order to promote good hygiene.
The headmistress of the school, Mrs Rose Ahadzi, expressed her profound gratitude on behalf of the school and encouraged the children to practise good sanitation habits.
McOttley Capital has supported several projects such as donations to the June 3 flood victims, surgery of four-year-old hole-in-heart Abdul at the Dzorwulu Special School and recently supported the Joy FM Next-to-Die documentary.
