The Rotary Club of Wa donated medical books worth US$100,000.00 to Wa Nursing Training College (NTC) to help improve teaching and learning.

Dr George Yaw Segnitome, the headmaster of the school who received the books, said inadequate teaching and learning materials had been a major challenge for the school and the books would go a long way in addressing their challenges. .

Speaking at a ceremony at the school to receive the books, the headmaster hinted that despite limited teaching and learning materials, the school had been able to produce qualified health personnel to communities over the years.

The Rotary Club of Wa, in partnership with the Rotary Club of Windsor Canada, donated the books as part of the club’s commitment to help improve the health sector by improving maternal and child health, disease prevention and treatment, health education and literacy.

“Despite these challenges, the school’s performance had never fallen below 80%. We need your support to maintain this status or to improve it,” said Dr Segnitome.

The principal also identified the non-residential status of the school as another challenge and source of concern for students and staff.

He called for support to provide accommodation for students on campus to reduce their challenge of having to travel long distances between surrounding communities and the school every day, as the school was on the outskirts of the city.

Mr. Stephen Mwinkaara, President of the Rotary Club of Wa, expressed hope that the books would create the needed impact in nursing students in training qualified health service providers for Ghana.

“We are here because our interest in building competent and qualified human resources for our communities goes hand in hand with your aspirations as a health training institution,” he explained.

He expressed his gratitude to a certain Dr. Bachiyie, a member of the Rotary Club of Windsor Canada, for facilitating the partnership for the donation of the books as well as any other support he had provided to the club in the past.

Some of the students thanked the Rotary Club of Wa and its partners for the donation and said the books would help them improve their academic pursuits, but appealed for more support from the club.
