Cal Bank PLC Supports Classroom Modernisation Project

A delegation from Cal Bank PLC has presented a cheque of one hundred thousand cedis (GHS100,000.00) to the management of the University of Ghana, to support the Vice-Chancellor’s classroom modernisation project.

The classroom modernisation project, which falls under the Vice-Chancellor’s Programme for Enhancing the UG Student Experience through Digitalisation will among other things, have selected lecture halls on all campuses of the University, redesigned to accommodate ICT equipment which will support learning technologies, provide students with easy-to-access information, as well as interactive software for use by faculty.

Mr. Bernard Sarfo Dikoh, Senior Associate, Cal Bank, in brief remarks expressed joy at the opportunity to support a cause that will benefit numerous students. He applauded the management of the University for constantly following up to ensure the timely delivery of their commitment to the project.

Mr. Dikoh assured the Vice-Chancellor that the amount donated is the initial contribution from the Bank, and that there will be additional support to the project. He was hopeful that Cal Bank PLC will continue to have a fruitful partnership with the University.

She noted that their commitment shows their involvement and interest in the University’s digitalization drive. Prof. Amfo maintained that the amount will greatly augment the funds for the project and that she looked forward to receiving the additional support as indicated by the Cal Bank team.
