Multichoice Ghana supports GJA award for education

On the 21st of August 2010, Multichoice Ghana sponsored its first Ghana
Journalists Association (GJA) award for best Journalist for Education at
the 15th journalist /media awards competition. The Award was won by
Isabella Owusu-Oppong of the Ghana Broadcasting Corporation.

At the event, the President of the GJA, Mr. Ransford Tetteh, reminded
members of the GJA that the awards competition was instituted to promote
high journalistic standards, as well as motivate members who excelled in
their work.”The GJA constitution charges the association to promote high
journalistic standards and reward excelling members. It is for this
reason that the annual GJA awards were instituted,” he said.

Multichoice Ghana’s decision to sponsor this award was influenced by
Multichoice Africa’s commitment in Corporate Social Investment (CSI)
programmes, with a particular focus on education. This focus is one of
leveraging and making the best use of the assets we have. For us that
means using our platform of top class technology and a wide range of
channels to empower others, nurture talent, harness skills and expand
opportunities. Another deciding factor is the strong and positive media
relations that MCG has with many media houses in Ghana and in
recognition of the support they have given over the years as they
tirelessly report on issues, events and stories that revolve around our
industry.

The birth of the first MultiChoice Resource Centre (MRC) in Nigeria in
2004 marked the beginning of an invigorating journey of development,
education and enlightenment. Over the last six years, the programme has
grown substantially, with more than 800 MRCs being established across
Africa.
With the support of the Ghana Educational Service, MultiChoice Ghana has
invested in 20 Ghanaian High Schools by. The installations are part of
a broad MultiChoice community development strategy to leverage company
assets and expertise toward development and growth of communities in
which the company operates. The company will be investing in 20 more
resource centre in Ghana this year, which will bring the total to 40
schools – four in each region.

The programme provides participating schools with resources such as
televisions, VCRs/DVD-Rs, digital satellite decoders and the DStv
Education bouquet. The bouquet comprises of eight premium educational
channels: National Geographic, Discovery World, History Channel, BBC
World, BBC Knowledge, Nat Geo Wild, Animal Planet and Mindset Learn.
Together these channels are able to combine the sensory experience of
television with premium global content to support the teaching and
learning process.

We partner with local communities and governments to establish resource
centres in the areas that need it most. Teacher support is provided in
specialised training sessions, delivered by external consultants and
service providers, focusing on integrating these resources into lessons,
to enhance learning in a practical way for teacher and student alike.
