Today is Valentine, 14th of February 2020. A day many people ordinarily will shower love on their loved ones.
However, the International Students Association (ISA) of KNUST did not only think of themselves but thought of the welfare of others in a bid to honour this day of love.
The 2019/2020 International Students Association executives led by the President of the Association Mr. Enyindah Ovuakwu Increase, reached out to the pupils of the KNUST BASIC SCHOOL.
The donation which happened at about 8:20 am today was themed “ The friends of St. Valentine”, this was an initiative brought by the 2017/2018 International Students Association executives led by Mr. Kenechukwu Egbue in a bid to reach out and improve the host community.
Items such as toiletries, sets of stationery, mathematical sets, cleaning equipment, and dust bins were donated to the Basic School.
ISA President, Mr. Increase tells hypercitigh.com the reason for opting to donate at KNUST Basic School. “Charity begins at home and international students have found a home in KNUST”, he said.
He further stated that as Student leaders, part of the focus should be on driving towards achieving the Sustainable development goals which include quality education.
