School Supplies Donations

My name is Ernest O. Agyeman. I was born and bred in the Republic of Ghana, West Africa. I moved to the Midwest of the United States in 1996 and then to Columbia in 2000. I have worked for the Harper’s Choice Community Association at Kahler Hall since that time.

I was schooled in four different countries: Elementary through high school in Ghana; undergraduate work in Nigeria; post-graduate work in Israel; and I received my doctorate in Public Health with a concentration in Epidemiology in the United States.

Last year, I visited my home in Ghana and went to several primary and middle schools in the communities where I began my education. I was sad to see that most of the classroom work was done on chalk boards. In fact, schools often have nothing more than a single computer, if they’re lucky.

I came away from my visit wanting to do something to give back and thus, the reason for this drive. I am seeking the following items for the schools: Computers/calculators, books (through middle school), backpacks, and sports equipment.

The drop-off locations are at Kahler Hall in Harper’s Choice and Claret Hall in River Hill. Items can be dropped between the hours of 9:00 am and 5:00 pm from February 13 through March 5.

If you have any questions about this drive, please contact Dr. Agyeman at 443-319-3920.
