Donation Library

 

The Evangelical Presbyterian Church and her partners in the United States of America have donated assorted books to the Nunya Library of the Ho Technical University to beef up the stock of materials for academic work in the University.


The books which cover varied fields of knowledge were part of donations from partners of the E.P Church in the United States namely the United Church of Christ, Global Ministries and Church of the Brethren. Some schools at the first and second cycle levels in the Volta Region were also beneficiaries in the consignment.


Presenting the books on behalf of the Moderator of the General Assembly of Evangelical Presbyterian Church, Reverend Ken Dzotefe said that there were more of such initiatives the partners will be extending to other areas such as the provision of electronic gadgets including computers to organizations and schools that more require them to function properly in today’s fast changing technological world.


Receiving the books on behalf of the University were the Interim Pro-Vice Chancellor of the Ho Technical University, Dr Ben Honyenuga and the Interim Registrar, Dr. Christopher Amehoe. In his remarks, Dr. Amehoe noted that the extension of a hand to the University through the donation of the books can be likened to reliving the missionary efforts of the Evangelical Presbyterian Church and her partners especially missionaries in planting the early seeds of formal education in Ghana.


The Interim Pro- Vice Chancellor, Dr. Ben Honyenuga commended the donors for their efforts. He reiterated the fact that the gesture was so timely at a time the University was celebrating its Golden Jubilee and from the Church whose Moderator, Rt Rev. Dr. Seth Senyo Agidi is an Alumnus. He also assured the donors that the books will be put to good use. ‘’It couldn’t have been a better time than a 50 years Anniversary’’- Said Dr. Ben. Honyenuga.


The Interim Pro-Vice Chancellor also applauded the EP Church and her partners for complementing missionary work with education, the resultant effect of having many people in the Volta Region formally educated for close to two centuries. He also praised Judith Agboka, a lecturer in the Department of Hospitality and Tourism Management of the University for playing a liaison role by connecting the Librarian to the donors and the EP Church, an effort which fruit has been realized by the donation to the University.


The donation is an initiative led by Rev. Patrick Morris of the United Church of Christ, whose parents were missionaries who lost their lives here in Ghana during their missionary work and were buried at the EP Church Cemetery in Ho.
The Interim Liberian, Mrs. Hanatu Abue Kugblenu-Mahama expressed the joy of the staff of the Library to have such a variety of materials to work with.
