“Water is important to human life and that’s why we ought to do it. The project aims to provide a reliable water source for employees, students, or close-by residents on campus following the inconsistent supply of water in the Oduro block”, he said.
Highlighting on the importance of the relationship with TTU, the Director of Operations of AmaliTech said the MoU sign in 2019 is already bearing fruits.
“AmaliTech has been extremely pleased with the support that we've had with TTU. Without TTU, it would have been very difficult for us getting the talents that we need to train. As a result, out of our graduate training programme, we have trained 77 people from TTU, which is about 34% of the people that we've trained over the period. With National Service, we've had about 35 people from TTU which is about 25% of the people that we've actually trained for national service through our other programmes. In terms of offers that we've had or people that we've taken on from national service working with us, we have had 17 People from last year, which is 21% of the people that we've actually recruited“, he said.
