The African Institute for Professional Excellence donates laptops to KNUST College of Health Sciences



As part of the “Support One Needy Student With One Laptop” (SONSOL) project, championed by the Vice-Chancellor of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), Professor Christian Agyare, the provost of the College of Health Sciences, made a request to organisations to help needy students with laptops.

In response, The African Institute for Professional Excellence (TAIPE) has donated 10 laptops to the College of Health Sciences in KNUST to support the SONSOL project.

The provost who received the items was grateful to TAIPE for the kind gesture.

“We are happy to receive these laptops. The Vice-Chancellor is so keen about getting more laptops to be distributed to the needy but brilliant students, especially freshers.

“Unlike the olden days where you need your note book to take notes in class, students now receive notes in the form of soft copies so they have to be on the virtual space to aid them in their studies.

“We made an appeal to Jams Info Systems Ltd and they responded with 10 laptops. We are hoping that other organisations we have approached will also respond positively so that our students will get some of these laptops especially those who are less privileged, we are very grateful for this donation,” he emphasised.  

Presenting the laptops on behalf of TAIPE to the University, Dr. John Serbe Marfo, a lecturer at the Department of Supply Chain and Information Systems was optimistic the donation will enhance teaching and learning.

“To support the initiative by the Vice Chancellor, TAIPE decided to donate 10 laptops, 6 brand new ones and 4 refurbished ones along with their bags to the project to enhance the University’s desire to provide, especially, freshers with digital devices such as these, so that they can study smoothly given the fact that the world is getting more digital,” he stressed.
