The University of Ghana Business School’s Level 300 Management of Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs) students together with the Head of Department of Public Administration and Health Services Management who doubles as the course lecturer, Prof. Justice Nyigmah Bawole, donated to the Drug and Alcohol Free Awareness and Rehabilitation Centre (DAFAREC). The exercise which took place on Friday, October 13, 2017, was in fulfilment of an annual ritual.
The donation consisted of assorted items and a cash amount of Two Thousand Four Hundred and Seventy Ghana Cedis (GH ₵2,470). Presenting the items and the cash to the beneficiaries, Prof. Bawole stated that the gesture has been inspired by the academic demands of his students who are currently studying a course on Management of NGOs. This, he said, will inculcate in the students the need to give back to society as well as help them understand the practical managerial rudiments of NGOs.
According to Prof. Bawole, “The contributions of NGOs cannot be underestimated since their operations cater for sectors of the society which have not been covered by governmental interventions”. “The donation would go a long way to help the association because of its timely intervention”, he added. He thanked the Management of UGBS, his students from both the Management of NGOs and Green Business classes, the Master of Public Administration programme and individuals who contributed to make the donation possible.
Receiving the items and cash on behalf of DAFAREC, the Director, Mr. Emmanuel Agyapong, thanked Prof. Justice Bawole and his students for donating to the upkeep of the Centre. He also expressed his gratitude to the students for the kind gestures extended to them. He then made a passionate appeal to the students and the general public to help the Centre rent a separate apartment to house and rehabilitate females as well.
