Afriwave Telecom refurbishes Teshie Orphanage Library

The faces of the management and children of Teshie Orphanage were beaming with smiles and joy as Afriwave Telecom Ghana Limited refurbished their library to a modern standard.

Afriwave Telecom refurbished the home’s library and resourced it with a thousand space bookshelves, six (6) desktop computers with one year internet subscription.

 Teshie Orphanage is a private organization (non- governmental) which provides shelter and homely atmosphere for orphans and vulnerable children within the Teshie community and managed through the assistance of individuals and organizations to educate and care for these children to equip them to face the challenges of the outside world.

Mr. Francis Poku, Deputy Chief Executive Officer of Afriwave Telecom, explained that the refurbishment of the library was part of Afriwave’s initiative at making a sustainable impact on the lives of these children, who need it most.

He reiterated that ‘’when we (Afriwave) provide support of any kind, our focus is to look at how sustainable and impactful the support is; there is no better way of ensuring the sustainability of an initiative than to invest in the education of our future leaders,” he added.

He revealed that Afriwave Telecom will soon launch its SMS platform which would create a single point for all Value-Added Service (VAS) providers to gain access to the Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) from one place.

Throwing more light on the SMS platform, Mr. Poku said, Afriwave’s SMS platform would help expand the communications need of every customer that route through the ICH.

He further noted that the SMS platform will not only expand the communications need of customers but will also experience seamless messaging and transparency in billing which would enable the customer to stay in control of cost and make an informed decision.

He urged VAS providers, Banks, Corporate Organizations, and the Telecom industry players to take advantage of the platform for their messaging needs.

Currently, the ICH is fully connected to all the telecommunication providers in Ghana, and already carrying all interconnect voice traffic in the country.

Mr. Francis Poku urged the orphanage to continue to nurture these young children to restore the confidence they need as children to grow into better adults.

Mr. and Mrs. Parker, founders of the home, thanked Afriwave for their generosity at such a crucial time of the year. They further expressed her gratitude to the entire management and staff for nominating the Home to be recognized in such a manner.
