The Member of Parliament for Manso Nkwanta, Professor Joseph Albert Quarm in support of the government’s efforts to enhance and make education more accessible to the people has established 5 unit classroom blocks for some disadvantaged communities in the Manso Nkwanta Constituency in the Amansie West District in the Ashanti Region.
The beneficiary communities are Abodom Brofoyedu, Pakyi Camp, Keniago, Nsiana, and Mpatuom.
Each of the school blocks is furnished and has at least a toilet facility, with an adjoining mechanized borehole and a poly tank to frequently provide water to the schools.
Professor Joseph Albert Quarm, last Thursday, accompanied by some dignitaries, unveil the 5 unit classroom blocks in separate events at the various communities.
Also present were the District Chief Executive of the area, Nii Lantey Oleenu, and some officers of the Ghana Education Service (GES).
The Member of Parliament speaking at the opening ceremony said the facilities were funded through the Ghana Education Trust Fund (GETFUND) and retell the government’s commitment to making education more accessible to the people, particularly in disadvantaged areas.
He expressed gratitude to the Minister for Education, Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh, for his enormous contribution towards the realization of the projects.
Professor Joseph Albert Quarm entreated the school authorities to ensure that the facilities were put to good use.
The District Education Director, Mr Kwabena Owusu, in a speech read on his behalf, commended the government for its numerous infrastructural projects in the district.
He said with the new classroom blocks in place, it would help eliminate the shift system in the schools, which was the case due to insufficient infrastructure.
