Dr. Emmanuel L. Shaw II, Chief Executive Officer of Synergy, Resources Inc., and Founder of the Emmanuel Shaw Foundation, has donated a 21-seater air-conditioned bus to the ED-U-CARE Academia of Learning on Duport Road.
Dr. Shaw presenting the bus expressed hope that the bus would bring some relief to the children of the school in terms of their daily attendance and their field trips. The donation of the school bus is the second benefit that the school has received from the Emmanuel Shaw Foundation.
Last year, the Foundation donated one year of internet broadband connectivity to the school to enable the students to have access to the World Wide Web for reading and research. In remarks, Dr. Shaw said that he established the Foundation to bring order and structure to the many charitable contributions he has customarily made to the Liberian society.
He stated that the main focus of the Emmanuel Shaw Foundation is education and health. He added that dozens of students have benefitted from the Foundation’s scholarship program over the years, which include scholarships to elementary, secondary, college, and graduate schools.
Receiving the keys to the bus, a representative of the school, Mr. M. Harrison Whennie, lauded Dr. Shaw for the donation, and said that the bus will greatly alleviate the many difficulties being faced by the students, faculty, and school administration.
