In week four of The Literacy Challenge by Citi FM, the team on Tuesday, June 28, 2022, had interactive sessions with two schools at Achimota.
The first stop of the day was at Achimota Basic School, where the students learned about the competition.
The team then went to Paradise Children Academy, a school at Dome.
The students were not too familiar with the competition and were taken through the technicalities and details of the challenge in an interactive session.
The project lead, Magdalene Williams, explained the entire process to the students and answered their questions.
Vodafone Ghana, a sponsor of The Literacy Challenge, also introduced the Instant Schools project to the students.
“I am glad Citi FM staff are here, as I have been hearing about this challenge for a very long time. I think I understand the details and I want to show Ghana what my school is also made of, so yeah, I will write and make sure I make it to the top 50,” a female student at Paradise Children Academy stated.
“I am looking forward to the top 50 already. I believe in myself and I know at the end of the challenge, I will be a winner,” a male student at Paradise Children Academy said.
This year’s competition is sponsored by Vodafone Ghana Foundation as part of the Kindred Partners, Prospectus Ghana Ltd, Dext Technology, InvestCorp Asset Management Ltd and Alife Soap.
