Keta Business College (KETABUSCO) Old Students Association (KEBSOSA) is set to launch a historic Endowment Fund dubbed the “Game Changer” created by the Association to help in infrastructure and human resource improvement of the college.
The launch of the fund, meant to provide financial resources for development of the school to create a conducive environment for teaching and learning is slated for April 12, 2019 at the British Council in Accra from 5:00pm
Chairman of the Projects and Funding Committee, Dr. Simon Harvey speaking on the importance of the fund said the college needed alternative funding to undertake projects aimed at achieving the dream of transforming the school into one of the best in the country.
Dr. Harvey said the self sustaining fund would among other things, attract bigger projects and ease fatigue that has always characterised fundraising activities to support the school.
“The executive of the old students association, national, over the years made efforts to approach various donor (funding) bodies for support in improving infrastructure and human resource on our school campus. The efforts yielded some results, which are the projects we currently see on campus. Some of the donors requested the old students association to provide Counterpart Funding (a donee providing minimum portion of the total project cost).”
“The Endowment Fund is mainly to help meet the requirements of such funders and attract them to our needs. The Endowment Fund will also help initiate projects on campus in the name of old students,” he continued.
The Chairman added that the “Endowment Fund will help fund programmes aimed at inspiring teachers and as well, help sponsor brilliant but needy students to tertiary schools.”
He therefore called on all old students (Coronats) to support the initiative as according to him, “the fund is for all old students and it requires us to subscribe to any of the categories and contribute that amount every year for a period of five years.”
President of KEBSOSA, Dr. Seth Kwami Anani in an interview with Voltaonlinegh.com, described the Game Changer as “one of its kind in the region”.
According to Dr. Anani, “the fund is a new and innovative way of drawing support for the school” and appealed to citizens of the region especially Anloland who are interested in education to be present at the launch to support the noble cause.
