The Rebecca Foundation which is run by the First Lady, Mrs. Rebecca Akufo-Addo has commissioned and handed over a newly constructed library in Kumawu to the Sekyere Kumawu District Assembly and the Ghana Library Authourity in the Ashanti Region.
The library was constructed, furnished and resourced by the Foundation, with the support of the Ghana Education Service, Ghana Library Authority and Book Aid International.
Recognising the role of literacy in education, the Rebecca Foundation has so far through the “Learning to Read Reading to Learn” Initiative constructed, furnished resourced and commissioned libraries in Wenchi in the Bono Region, Sefwi Debiso in the Western North Region, Moree in the Central Region, Daffiama Bussie Issah in the Upper West Region and Amansaman in the Greater Accra Region.
The soon-to-be-completed libraries at Bortianor in the Greater Accra Region and Dambai in the Oti Region will bring the total number of libraries constructed by the Rebecca Foundation, to eight.
Early this month, the Foundation donated hospital beds to the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital and Kumasi South Hospital in the Ashanti Region to support healthcare delivery.
