Some of the beneficiary schools include Teiman St. James Anglican Basic school, Otinibi Basic school, Danfa Methodist Basic school, Pantang Presby Basic school, and Presec Staff '3' & '4' primary school.
The Ghana Book Development Council (GBDC), in collaboration with the Ghana Association of Writers (GAW), has organised a creative-writing workshop for some selected senior high schools in the Greater Accra Region. The workshop which took place on February 14, 2020, at Accra Girls Senior High School, was geared toward generating interest in reading and creative writing among students in the senior high schools.
A team comprising staff of GBDC (led by Daniel Ofosu-Asamoah, the Literacy Promotion Manager) and the Ghanaian Centre of PEN International (led by Mr. Frank Mackay Anim-Appiah, the Executive Director of the Ghanaian Centre of PEN International), visited some selected schools in the Region to interact with the students, exposed them to the importance of reading and also form Reading and Creative-writing Clubs to serve as a platform for honing the reading and writing skills of the students.
