Geodrill Ghana Limited, a drilling exploration company in the mining sector, has taken another giant step by presenting a cheque of GH¢150,000 to the OLD TAMASCANS Association (OTA) in Accra.
The kind gesture forms part of the company’s contribution towards equipping Tamale Secondary Technical School state-of-the-art science laboratory complex for the current and future students of the school.
Making the presentation, the Chief Executive Officer of Geodrill Ghana Limited, Mr. Dave Harper, noted that, as part of the Company’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) the donation was aimed at supporting schools in Ghana and also to give back to the people in the society.
According to him, the company chose Tamale Secondary Technical school, because of the good relationship with one Alhaji Dr. Ali, a prominent member of OLD TAMASCANS. And it was through their interactions that is why this offer came up.
Geodrill Ghana Limited President and CEO Dave Harper expressed his hope that their education at TAMASCO and particularly in science, would set them on the path to successful adult careers and contribute meaningfully to the development of Ghana.
He furthered that Geodrill Ghana limited, a leading drilling exploration company to the mining sector, is committed to being a socially responsible company that actively promotes social causes such as the education of Ghanaian youth.
However, he encouraged other companies to take their Environment, Social, and Governance (ESG) obligations seriously and support worthy institutions to fulfill their mission in any means.
The cheque, presented by the company’s CEO, David Harper, was received by the Interim Chairman of OLD TAMASCANS Mr. Beninett Yaw Quist Awume.
Receiving the cheque, the Interim Chairman of the OLD Tamale Secondary Technical school Association, TAMASCANS, Mr. Beninett Yaw Quist Awume, expressed his profound gratitude to Geodrill Ghana limited for coming to the aid of Tamale Secondary Technical school.
The donation came at the right time. “We are hopeful that this will not be the only type of intervention you do in the management of Tamale Secondary Technical school,” he added.
According to him, they will make use of the money and make sure the project will be completed on time. “It will come to completion and we will turn back and say Geodrill Ghana limited has helped Tamale Secondary Technical school to progress,” Mr. Awume stated.
