SCHOLARSHIP SCHEME

The bank initiated a scholarship scheme to enable needy Junior High School (J.H.S) pupils to enter the Senior High School (S.H.S) in 1999. So far, 270 students have benefited, out of which 60% are females. This has helped improved girl child education. Again, the bank has put up a Community Library at Pakyi No. 2 to assist children in the area to read and research to enhance their education.

SUPPORT TO EDUCATION

The future of the country lies in the quality of education. Atwima Kwanwoma Rural Bank has been fighting ignorance since 1999 when a committee was set up to study the special needs of its community. The committee considered the role education plays in the human resource development and therefore threw its searchlight on the state of primary schools in the bank's catchment areas.

SUPPORT TOWARDS DISEASE PREVENTION

Atwima Kwanwoma Rural Bank has made the health concerns of its operating area a priority. The S.D.A Hospital at Dominase in the year 2000 was adopted and has since donated cash support of GH¢ 6,000 towards a construction of a nurses' quarters, five (5) hospital beds with mattresses, furniture for the out-patient department, one (1) colour television and a video deck and above all, health educational and outreach programmes to create awareness on health issues.

CONTRIBUTIONS TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF BANK'S AREA OF OPERATION

Atwima Kwanwoma Rural Bank maintains a large budget for community development and you will agree with me that, the bank is making giant strides to move Ashanti forward. The bank has developed a trademark of social philanthropy. Our impact can be seen in areas like Education, Health, Sanitation, Water Supply and Electricity. The bank is promoting war against disease, poverty and ignorance. Since 1995, the bank has spent GH¢ 215,000 on development projects in the locality.
