Cement producing giant, Dangote Cement Ghana Limited, has donated over one thousand of its branded exercise books to the Sakumono Primary and Basic School located in Tema West. The donation made on Friday, October 4, 2019, formed part of the 2019 edition of the company’s annual Sustainability Week Celebration.
This year’s celebration was launched on Wednesday, October 2, 2019, at the company’s premises in Tema, under the theme: “Our Communities, Our Passion. The Dangote Way.”
Managing Director of Dangote Cement Ghana Limited, Brice Houeto, presented the books to the school on behalf of his outfit.
The pupils were overwhelmed with joy as they received the Dangote Cement Ghana team led by Mr. Houeto.
Mr. Houeto and his team had interaction with the pupils and educated them about Dangote Cement Ghana’s operations.
Headmistress of the School, Patricia Boadi, received the books on behalf of her Institution.
She thanked Dangote Cement Ghana for its generosity.
In a typical Oliver Twist fashion, she appealed to the company to donate cement to the school to enable it complete its fence wall.
