Ananse Foundation Refurbishes Sunyani Children’s Library

Ananse Fundation (AF), a
non-governmental organisation, on Saturday volunteered to paint the Sunyani
Children’s library.

 The Library, which
serves thousands of pupils in the Sunyani municipality, had been in bad shape
for some years. It looked dirty while some part of the roof had damaged and needed
to be fixed to save the scant materials in it. 
Kweku Ananse Mansoh, the
CEO of the foundation, told journalists that it was “a benchmark midyear
project” for the foundation which he and a few friends who support
him with funds   slated for every republic day as a way of given back to
the society. 
He said the painting of
libraries, which started last year at the Bibiani Community Library in the
Western Region, was to make the facility attractive and also imbibe
reading habits in school- going kids.
The CEO bemoaned the
dying out of volunteerism in the country and underscored the need for Ghanaians
to develop love for community work which tackles problems the government has
not solved. 
“We should not wait
for government to solve problems we can help solve by ourselves.  I am
from Bibiani, my friends with me here traveled from different parts of the
country to come and get this work done”, Mr Mansoh added. 
Isaac Armah, the
librarian in charge of the facility, commended the foundation for their
kindness and appealed to the community and other philanthropists to assist them
with furniture and books.
