GOtv Ghana Limited and MIH support Meyah Preparatory School

DSC02216The Meyah Preparatory School was established in Medie in the Ga West Municipality of Greater Accra region of Ghana in the year 2004 after the retirement of principal Moses Emerson from the army in 2000 and subsequent relocation to Medie.

A majority of inhabitants of Medie are settler farmers whose farm lands have been badly degraded by the activities of sand winning. Presently most of their livelihood depends upon either cracking stones at the quarries or buying and selling of fresh corn brought in by middlemen from other farming areas

For a few years after they established the school, Mr. Agbodra and his wife, taught ten children between the ages of one and five on benches under a tree. Currently the student population is one hundred and fifty four (154) and occupies four classrooms.

Mr. Kobus Bezuidenhout, West & Central Africa Regional Director of MIH West Africa Limited, and his wife, Mrs. Daniel Bezuidenhout have salvaged palettes used for the shipment of GOtv Ghana’s DVB – T2 transmission equipment and donated it to the Meyah Preparatory School to be used as a deck infront of a container which has been converted into a library. Additionally, the platform created with the palettes will be roofed and will serve as an outdoor reading area for students as the library has limited seating.

In line with its corporate social responsibility policies, GOtv Ghana Limited has been involved in several initiatives aimed at contributing to the nation’s social development agenda as well as providing an exciting television viewing experience to its subscribers. This includes the sponsorship of the 2013 Springboard Road Show, Hot FM’s Homowo Soccer Gala, Hitz FM’s screening of the 2013 Champions League finals as well as organizing The Digital Dialogue Workshop, a digital migration workshop for stakeholders in collaboration with the National Communications Authority.
