Rotary Offers Computers, Furniture To St. Anne 

By Francis Tim Mbom — St Anne’s Girls College, Limbe, was, September 13, beneficiary of a consignment of computers and benches offered by Rotary Club of Limbe, a philanthropic NGO with branches worldwide. This was the second time that Rotary was coming to the assistance of this baby college that will be sitting in for the GCE Ordinary Level examination for their very first time in 2013.

Over a year ago, Rotary donated to them a 72-seat bus and books for their library. This time, they came with computers for the School’s Computer Lab and benches for the refectory. While offering the gifts, the Rotary Project Committee Chair, John Ndakwa, said; “Rotarians were reaching out to serve humanity with some vitals tools that (the) children will basically need for improving and developing skills.”

He said the gifts were the fruits of a partnership between the Limbe Club and a sister Club in Meaford, Canada. He said their Canadian Rotary friends, alongside their Past Governor from Congo, Fred Ne Tiabu, supported the project with a total of FCFA 15 million. It is with this amount, Ndakwa said, that the Limbe philanthropists have been able to furnish some six schools in Fako, Meme and Lebialem Divisions with equipment in a bid to ease studies.

“We feel honoured to be constant beneficiaries of your charitable donations. The textbooks you offered us, the school bus and now the computers and furniture, are all instruments to enhance our learning process,” the Senior Prefect, Stephaney Yankoua and Education Prefect, Nathalie Ngeh, said in a joint speech. Meantime, the Principal, Rev. Sister Elisabeth Ankiambom, said the “computers will help change their vision for the better.”

The Catholic Education Secretary, Rev Father Joseph Awoh urged the students should use the computers to do research and improve their studies. He remarked that the mission of the Catholic Church in offering education has been for ages and they have always been striving that students get the best. He thanked the Rotarians for their efforts. The occasion was witnessed by the PTA President, Peter Akote, who is a past President of the Limbe Rotary.
