The Member of Parliament for Bantama constituency, Francis Asenso-Boakye has, as part of activities to mark this year’s Easter celebrations presented scholarship packages to one hundred and six (106) brilliant but needy tertiary education students from various communities in his constituency.

He also presented financial assistance to thirty-nine (39) petty traders, who are mainly market women operating within the area. This happened at a brief ceremony held at the forecourt of the MP’s constituency office in Bantama, in the Ashanti region.

Addressing the beneficiaries at the event, Mr. Asenso-Boakye highlighted that, the package is part of initiatives being undertaken to address challenges facing the vulnerable in society and giving them a helping hand.

He reiterated that, the gesture will go a long way to offset the academic fees and expenses of the students, and will enable the beneficiaries focus on their studies and pursue their fields of interest without any financial burden.

Additionally, under the MPs Livelihood Support Scheme, thirty-nine (39) market women operating in the area were granted financial assistance to help support their businesses.

The purpose is to facilitate the growth of entrepreneurship in the community and support the livelihoods of the beneficiaries.

It was an occasion of great joy and gratitude, as constituents praised Hon. Asenso-Boakye for his selfless gesture towards the growth of education in the constituency.
