In line with the Vice-Chancellor’s vision to Support One Needy Student with One Laptop dubbed ‘SONSOL Project’, JOSPONG Group of Companies has donated Fifty (50) brand-new HP laptop computers to the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST).
The Director of research at JOSPONG Group, Dr. Kofi Sekyere Boateng explained that the kind gesture was as a result of the great collaboration that has existed between the two institutions over the years. He observed that KNUST has been a great partner of Zoomlion over the years and it was therefore, appropriate to support the university in times of need.
The Vice-Chancellor, Professor (Mrs.) Rita Akosua Dickson thanked JOSPONG Group for supporting brilliant but needy students targeted by the ‘SONSOL Project’. She said that the problem of students with financial challenges was real and appealed for more assistance from other corporate institutions. She added that corporate bodies should help mentor these needy students, and imbibe soft skills needed to make them employable in the competitive market.
Professor Dickson assured the delegation of KNUST’s commitment to ensure that genuine needy students who meet the required criteria would receive the laptop computers.
