Multimedia Group Ltd, has always been big on to giving back to society, and as part of its commitment to the community started supporting brilliant but needy children with their Senior High Secondary School education in January 2007. The first corps of 10 beneficiaries were sent on its way with an initial seed fund of GHS 20,000.In 2011, the number of beneficiaries per year was increased to 20, a number that jumped again in 2013 to 50 students. In 2015, the Company registered a charitable foundation, The Multimedia Foundation which took over the administration of the MGL Educare Fund.
By the beginning of the 2017 academic year, over 600 bright, but needy students had benefited from the initiative.
With the introduction of the free SHS policy by the government of Ghana the Foundation recommended to the Board of MGL that it channel the fuds into the sponsorship of, again, bright but needy students in tertiary public institutions of learning. To date, 18 students have benefited from the decision to bring tertiary level students into the ambit of the MGL Educare Foundation’s sponsorship.
Following the implementation of the free SHS policy, there was a huge explosion in the number of applicants for places in the public SHSs, a development which threatened to overwhelm the existing facilities and human resources of the schools.
The Joy Learning Channel, a not-for-profit educational channel on the Multi TV platform that seeks to provide quality tuition and learning resources to Senior High School (SHS) students no matter where they are in the country by eliminating unequal access to quality education across Ghana was the Multimedia Group’s answer to this problem.
Through strategic partnerships and alliances with partners SES, KNET and Wolo Afric Ltd the channel Joy Learning was birthed. The channel was launched on Monday, 30 th December, 2019 with an initial focus on Senior High School educational content both as an extension of the original emphasis of the Educare Fund’s direction and to address the challenge of the extended periods between school terms that double track SHS students have to deal with.
