As part of their commitment to complement government effort in promoting education in the country, PTN Services on Tuesday June 16th 2015, provided school materials including bags, books, pens, pencils, geometry sets and one year tuition fees for thirty six (36) pupils of the Thomlison High School worth millions of Leones at a ceremony held at their headquarters, No. 23 Adelaide Street, Freetown.

 

Presenting the cheque and the school materials to Mr. Mohamed Kargbo, the Bursar of the School, the Managing Director of PTN Services, Ponsford T. Nimneh admonished the pupils especially the girls to take their education seriously. He said for the past six years, his institution has been providing scholarships to deserving pupils of that school as part of their corporate social responsibility.

 

Mr. Nimneh said the Ebola outbreak has seriously affected business activities in the country but stressed that the donation shows that they are with the pupils.

 

Receiving the cheque and the materials, the School Bursar, Mr. Mohamed Kargbo lauded the institution for the donation describing it as timely especially when the Senior Secondary School is yet to be approved by government. Mr. Kargbo said PTN Services is the only institution that is supporting their school and pupils.

 

He further disclosed that over two hundred pupils have benefited from the annual scholarships provided by the institution within the last six years. He said the Company built an Ebola Holding Centre for the community last year as part of their contribution to eradicate Ebola out of the community.

 

SSS 3 pupils, Alpha Kamara and Doris Charles who are orphans thanked the Company for coming to their aid. They pleaded with Mr. Ponsford not to stop the scholarship project since they do not have people to support their education.

 

“If you decide to stop the scholarship project, it will seriously affect my education since I am an orphan. We are appealing to you to continue to support our education,” Doris Charles said in tears.

 

It could be recalled that this is not the first time the Company is undertaken such project. The Company rehabilitated the Adelaide Street Police station, find seed money for the construction of the new Lumley police division, supported the Milton Margai School for the Blind and the military in the Ebola fight among several other interventions.
