Plan Ghana and the Korea International Co-operation Agency (KOICA) have handed over a GH¢259,163 six-unit classroom block, to the Kwabea Asasehene District Assembly Primary School, in the Upper Manya Krobo District of the Eastern Region.
The block replaces the school’s dilapidated structure and is part of the “Quality Education” programme, which seeks to increase enrolments and improve education at Kwabea Asasehene.
The six classrooms are all furnished, with the block also containing a staff common room, a store, a library and a five-seater girl-friendly KVIP toilet facility, with a hand basin.
The Country Director of Plan Ghana, Prem Shukla, hoped that the project would enhance teaching and learning, and benefit the community as a whole.
He promised that the organization would reach out to more rural communities, to enable the pupils there to get access to quality education, and called for effective monitoring and supervision to improve the pupils’ academic performance, and advised them to make maximum use of the facilities.
Mr. Philip Odonkor Agmor, who represented the District Director of Education, lauded the contribution of Plan Ghana towards reducing the number of “schools under trees” in the community and commended the community for providing the labour and some of the materials for the project, as well as KOICA, for the funding. According to him, school infrastructure is lacking in the district, and thee are dilapidated school buildings which need to be replaced.
Mr. Agmor tagged the pupils of Kwabea Asasehene as fortunate in having the new building and was confident it would boost their morale, to learn. He entreated the community to maintain the block, even for the use of future generations.
He further appealed to the two organinsations to put up structures for the kindergarten department. The head teacher, Mr. Stephen Narh, expressed his gratitude to Plan Ghana and KOICA and requested the Ghana Education Service to post more teachers to the school to meet the academic needs of the pupils.
