Christmas has come early for two schools –Nkoranza Senior High Technical School (NSHTS) in the Bono East Region and St. Jerome Senor High School (SAJESS) in the Ashanti Region–following the inauguration of their computer labs after they were fully refurbished and furnished by Hello World Organisation, a non-profit organisation, with 30 sets of all-in-one computers and relevant peripherals for each school. 

The schools, in addition to the 30 sets of all-in-one computers, also benefited from a projector each, a printer, scanner and photocopier in one machine each, UPS power back up for each computer in each school and improved internet connectivity. 

Also, there was a complete refurbishment of the laboratories that saw the tiling of the floors, installation of air conditioners, replacement of fans, painting of the interior and exterior of the labs, installation of glass windows and doors, window blinds, enhanced security features including burglar proofing and a general improvement of the ambience for teaching and learning.

Hello World Organisation, the brain child of Ghanaian-born American software engineer, Evans Adusei Jr –son of Mr. Evans Adusei, CEO of Evans Timbers– seeks to empower Ghanaian students to compete with their peers across the globe in the sphere of emerging technology. The organisation’s founder explained that the name Hello World is a nod to programming; a discipline which he hopes the computers will help deepen. 

“At Hello World, we seek to ignite curiosity, foster creativity, and pave the way for a brighter future for Ghanaian youth through coding and artificial intelligence education. We are committed to democratizing access to cutting-edge technology by providing comprehensive learning experiences that empower the youth to not only code but also understand and harness the transformative power of artificial intelligence,” he explained. 

“By bridging the educational gap, we aim to equip these young minds with the skills, knowledge, and confidence to thrive in an increasingly digital world,” Mr. Adusei Jr. added.

This comes as a 2019 report by the International Finance Corporation (IFC) estimated that there will be 230 million “digital jobs” in Sub-Saharan Africa by 2030, with Ghana alone offering 9 million digital jobs and nearly US$4 billion in revenue potential; a figure analysts believe has grown as a result of pandemic-accelerated digital drive.

Twellium Ghana leads in environmental sustainability with a high-tech effluent treatment plant (ETP)

Published

on

The Twellium Industrial Company Limited, a Ghanaian-based manufacturing company, has taken a giant step to lead an environmental sustainability project by introducing a high-tech effluent treatment plant.

The Effluent Treatment Plant (ETP) is a specialized facility designed to treat and purify industrial wastewater before its safe discharge into the environment. This state-of-the-art facility ensures that all industrial waste the company generates is treated effectively, preventing any waste from being sent to the surrounding towns.

The plant processes up to 1,000 cubic metres of wastewater daily. All wastewater from the facility is sent to the ETP, ensuring that their effluent discharge parameters meet the GS 1212:2019 effluent discharge parameters for the food and beverage industries.

Speaking to journalists after a factory tour, Mr. Ali Ajami, Chief Marketing Officer, Twellium Industrial Company Limited, said the GHS3 million Effluent Treatment Plant (ETP) processes organic and inorganic pollutants, as well as all other impurities generated from the factory, before they are safely discharged.

Mr. Ajami said treated water from the plant could be used by neighbouring farmers to water their crops and for other domestic uses. He said the company was committed to environmental sustainability and would continuously explore innovations that would ensure that its operations did not harm the environment.

“At Twellium, we remain committed to environmental sustainability, and through this effluence treatment plant for waste management, we will ensure that all industrial waste the company generates is treated effectively, preventing any waste from being sent to the surrounding towns,” he said.

Mr. Ajami added, “This will also help mitigate potential environmental hazards and promote a clean and safe environment for local communities. This proactive approach underscores our dedication to preventing environmental havoc and maintaining high standards of environmental stewardship.”.

Mr. Ajami further expressed profound gratitude to the Government of Ghana for creating an enabling environment for businesses and providing incentives to support business growth.

He said the company, which has been operating in Ghana for the past 10 years, has expanded its production line to more than eleven and provided employment to more than 5,000 Ghanaians, among other interventions.

“The government gives incentives and encourages investors to come here. The government helps to export made-in-Ghana products outside the country, and this helps us,” he said.

Mr. Ajami encouraged businesses to take advantage of the conducive environment in Ghana to export their products to neighbouring countries to help boost Ghana’s economy and create more employment opportunities.

For his part, Ghanaian Afro-dancehall sensation Stonebwoy, who was crowned Artist of the Year at the just-ended Telecel Ghana Music Awards (TGMA), said industrialisation was the surest way to create employment opportunities and commended Twellium for investing in Ghana.

Stonebwoy, who is a brand ambassador for Bigoo Drink, said the company’s vision of providing environmental sustainability aligns with his personal agenda of safeguarding the community, adding that its “proactive approach”.

“Employment is going on here, and the number of staff is increasing. I am happy to find some of the people that I lived with in the same community with secure employment here,” he said.

The event also saw Twellium Industrial Company Limited announce the wife of Stonebwoy, Dr. Louisa Ansong-Satekla, as Brand Ambassador for Verna Mineral Water.
