Republic Bank Ghana, a subsidiary of Republic Financial Holdings Limited, has handed over an ultramodern primary school block, Berase A.M.E Zion Basic School, to the chiefs, school leadership and people of Berase in the Komenda Edina Eguafo Abirem (KEEA) District of Cape Coast, Central Region.

The ultramodern school block was built by Republic Bank Ghana, as part of its ‘Power-to-Make-a-Difference’ initiative.

Republic Bank, in 2019, took on the project following a report by visiting staff of the dire need to reconstruct the local school which had fallen into a dilapidated state and posed a huge risk to pupils and teachers.

The newly-constructed School comprises a 6-classroom block fully furnished with dual desks, fully-furnished headmaster’s office, teachers’ common room, toilet facilities, sports changing room and a fully-stocked library.

Speaking at the handing over ceremony, the Managing Director of Republic Bank Ghana, Farid Antar, expressed his appreciation to the people of Berase for the opportunity given to the bank to serve them.

According to the Managing Director, Republic Bank believes in its ‘Power-to-Make-A-Difference’ initiative, which is built on four pillars; the Power to Care, the Power to Help, the Power to Learn and the Power to Succeed.

“For us at Republic Bank, there is no greater joy nor reward than making fundamental differences in people’s life. We have the power to make a difference and today, we are glad that we have made this contribution to the development of the good people of Berase”, the Managing Director added.

Also present at the handing over ceremony, was the Chairman of Republic Bank Ghana Board, Mr Charles W. Zwennes.

He encouraged the leaders of the community to utilize the school block as a centre of excellence to provide quality education to the children.

“This facility should be seen as the beacon of hope. The Hope that these future generations will be thought in a conducive facility, have access to quality education and given the opportunity to become good valuable human capital for this community and mother Ghana”, the Chairman added.

The chiefs and leaders of the community commended the management and staff for the kind gesture and timely intervention. They assured the management of the Republic Bank of their commitment to maintaining the state of the school.
