An ultra-modern world class children park, is set to be constructed by the Rotary club, Ho, to serve as playground for children in the Volta region and beyond.
The President of the Rotary Club in Ho, Rev. Dr. Cyril Fayose, disclosed this during the presidential ball and fund raising dinner of the club held in Ho, over the weekend.
According to the President, the designated space for such activities in Ho, has become a den of drug addicts and robbers, thus the club intends to partner the municipal Assembly and the Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Protection to equip the Ho Children’s park
“We are inviting all of you to join us provide a safe environment for the wholesome growth and development of our children through your spiritual, moral and financial support,” Rev. Fayose stated.
Rotary Club, Ho, according to the President is endowed with committed and dedicated members who have defiantly executed some marvelous humanitarian service projects in the past and also, the club has made great strides in the recent past especially in the last three years.
The Managing Director of the Ghana Commercial Bank (GCB) Ltd, who was the guest speaker for the occasion in his speech, said test driven education mandates often do not emphasize children’s emotional and social needs.
According to Ernest Mawuli Agbesi, this limits the development of unique talents and fulfillment of individual lives and also deprives society of practical, problem solving opportunities for creativity.
Mr. Agbesi, indicated that childhood was a holistic process different for each individual child, emphasizing the need for alternatives, hands-on learning environments to march their varied learning styles.
The GCB boss, however, called on stakeholders to join hands with Rotary Club to serve humanity through service to the community.
