MOTEC Project 9 Rolls Into Action

...

The class of 1983 of the University of Ghana Medical School Korle Bu in line with Motec Project 9 - ‘Diaspora's contribution to medical education through investment in human resources, provision of educational material and development of infrastructure’ - raised funds from members resident in UK in support of education. The doctors guided by senior members of Motec raised a substantial amount of funds to purchase computers for schools in the suburbs of Accra. The institutions included  St Mary’s Catholic Girls Basic School at Korle Gonno,  James Town Methodist Basic School, Korle Gonno Roman Catholic Boys School and Korle Gonno Methodist  ‘A’ Basic School. Pictures show the presentation of the computers to the Schools in Accra by representatives of the group.
 Sincere gratitude to the group especially the Motec members in helping support of schools around the teaching hospital in Accra. Bravo Christine and Sarah, executives of UGMS 83 and the class of 1983. Motec may approach the group to support the construction of a safe infrastructure for Abisim Nankese in the Eastern Region which is currently led by School and Health Foundation of Ireland.
