Meanwhile, Mr Isaac Miezah Kodwo has charged the students to lift high the image of the Ellembelle District and in Ghana as a whole.
Since they say education is the key to success, Mr Isaac Miezah reiterated that the NGO’s utmost priority was in education and would, therefore, give its best to ensure high literate population in the Ellembelle District.
He explained that the effort by the Chief Executive Officer, Mr Clement Clinton Blay was a way to complement the District Education directorate efforts in ensuring every school-going child in the district to have access to quality education.
Some of the schools that benefited includes; Nyame Bekyere D/A at Menzizor, Akoto D/A JHS, Kanokware D/A JHS, Kikam Methodist JHS, Eluku, Ayawura, Adubrim, Aiyinase Catholic JHS and others.

Mr Miezah again advised the candidates to take away fear, be focused and study hard to justify the investment made on them by the NGO and their parents and come out with good results.
Studying in rural areas he said, should not impede their future educational success hence, he encouraged the students to apply perseverance and hardworking to help them attain their goals.
