FAVL/CESRUD vacation classes were today the 6th of September 2016 brought to a close. The closing ceremony was very well attended function by all FAVL librarians, teachers who supported the classes; students and pupils who participated in the classes and the executive director of FAVL/CESRUD Ghana. It was all joy and excitement on the part of the students on the arrival of the director (Mr. Rex Asanga).
I welcomed all and sundry for making it to the climax of the vacation classes in my opening remarks. I took the opportunity to brief the director again on all what we have been doing during the vacation classes; the number of story books been read, games played and the subject courses discussed. I reiterated that the mission of FAVL is that everyone should have the opportunity to pick up a book and read hence the need to always bring the young ones to read and learn together. I thanked all the librarians and teachers for their tireless efforts; they have indeed sacrificed their time to help these young ones for free.
One of the teachers by name Mr. Adea Nicholas spoke on behalf of the teachers and thanked FAVL/CESRUD Ghana for their efforts put in place (providing the libraries) for reading and learning, he also thanked his colleagues' teachers and the coordinator for their efforts made during the classes.
CESRUD director Mr. Rex Asanga on his part thanked the coordinator, librarians, teachers and all the students for a successful vacation classes. He told the teachers that God will reward them for sacrificing their holidays to teach the young ones, he advise the students to take their education seriously by reading at all times, going to the library and reading story books, also he advise the students to cut off friends that do not like education. He said he will continue to talk to other NGOs in education to come on board and assist these young ones in the communities. He hinted that if funds are made available, those schools that are far from the libraries, if they can get us a structure in their schools, we will open other libraries there so that those around that area would also have the opportunity to go there and read. Director Asanga did some presentation of books, pen, pencils and rules bought by FAVL Ghana to some deserving students
