Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints donates ultramodern classroom block to Odorgonno SHS


The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has reaffirmed its dedication to education in Ghana with a recent donation. In collaboration with Dickson Adomako Kissi, Member of Parliament for the Anyaa Sowutuom Constituency, the Church has presented Odorgonno Senior High School in the Ga Central Municipality of the Greater Accra Region with a modern 6-unit classroom block and a 10-seater restroom facility.

This donation aims to address the school’s inadequate classrooms and enhance the learning environment, providing students with essential facilities to excel in their studies. Elder S. Gifford Nielsen, President of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Africa West Area, emphasized the significance of education in individual and community development during the handover ceremony.

The Church has consistently contributed to various projects across the country, promoting social, economic, and spiritual well-being and empowering students. Flint Ekyem Mensah, Director for Temporal Affairs of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, noted that the new classroom block represents hope, opportunity, and the Church’s unwavering commitment to educating all children.

The initiative is intended to complement and support the government’s efforts in prioritizing education. The school’s headmaster, Patrick Mensah, expressed gratitude for the facility, which addresses overcrowding and provides accommodation for elective subjects. He also appealed to the Church to consider assisting with the establishment of a boys’ hostel and science laboratory.

Reverend John Ntim Fordjour, the Deputy Minister of Education, pledged to address the outstanding school requests, aiming to transform teaching and learning and improve access and quality education. The commissioning ceremony was attended by prominent dignitaries, including the Deputy Director-General of the Ghana Education Service, Dr. Kwabena Tandoh, and other regional and municipal education officials.
