Zenith Bank Strengthens Educational Ties; Donates Laptops to KNUST

In a significant move to support education and technological advancement, Zenith Bank (Ghana) Ltd has donated 20 laptops to the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) and 10 desktop computers to Ho Technical University (HTU). This donation underscores the longstanding relationship between the bank and the two institutions and forms part of Zenith Bank’s corporate social responsibility to give back and positively impact communities where it operates.

The donation event saw the participation of the Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of Zenith Bank (Ghana) Ltd,  Mr. Henry Onwuzurigbo, who led the bank’s delegation to KNUST. Mr. Onwuzurigbo highlighted that this gesture aligns with the bank’s commitment to advancing ICT education in institutions.

He noted that the initiative is anchored on the bank’s three pillars: People, Technology, and Service, reflecting its mission to continuously invest in the best people, technology, and environment. “We are committed to strengthening and fostering even more robust relationships with universities.

This commitment reflects our broader strategy of fostering educational partnerships to drive innovation and academic excellence,” Mr. Onwuzurigbo stated. He emphasized that such partnerships are crucial for equipping the next generation with the necessary skills and resources to thrive in an increasingly digital world.

The Vice-Chancellor of KNUST, Prof. Rita Dickson, expressed her gratitude, noting the timeliness of the donation. “Many students have applied for laptops through the school’s online request portal and are eagerly waiting for their requests to be honored.

This donation is very timely, and we will ensure that the students receive these laptops for their learning needs,” she said. This initiative not only underscores Zenith Bank’s dedication to corporate social responsibility but also its vision to be a catalyst for positive change in the education sector.
