Atwima Kwanwoma MP commissions projects

Commissioned 16-seater toilet facility for Ampabame No.1 community

Lawyer Kofi Amankwah Manu, Member of Parliament (MP) for Atwima Kwanwoma, has commissioned a new classroom block for the Darko Roman Catholic School.

The three-unit classroom block, which replaces an old one, was funded by the Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints Charity.

Each of the three classrooms is equipped with a flat screen television and stocked with educational materials.

The MP also led a team to commission a 16-seater toilet facility built for the Ampabame No.1 and Gyekye communities.

He stated that the projects were executed based on the needs assessment of the beneficiary communities.

He disclosed that he begun the initiative a year ago when he brokered a partnership deal between his office and the Church of Latter Day Saints, which had yielded positive results.

He stressed that the good part of the deal was that the Church had promised more and massive projects in the coming months.

Elder Larry Woodbury, Area Welfare Specialist for the Latter Day Saints Charity, and his wife, Patricia Woodbury, inspected the projects.

Elder Woodbury indicated that humanitarian support was the very foundation upon which the Charity was established, hence, the support to communities over the years. He entreated the management of the schools to take good care of the facility.

In another development, MP Kofi Amankwah Manu has cut the sod for the construction of a 16-seater toilet facility and four-seater water reservoirs each for the Mmrewadwa and Tekyiman communities and their basic schools respectively, with yet another 16-seater toilet facility having being allocated to the Adumasa community.

The MP has also donated street lights to over 15 communities in the Atwima Kwanwoma Constituency, as a follow-up to the previous distribution of street lights to over 30 electoral areas through their Assembly members.

Mr. Amankwah Manu, who is also the Deputy Defence Minister, stated that improving the standard of the education system in Ghana was the shared responsibility of all stakeholders.

He said his vision was to complement the President’s education policy of providing equal opportunity for every Ghanaian child irrespective of one’s location, and charged every responsible citizen to contribute their quota to ensure that standard of education was improved upon.

The MP explained that he was seeking to bridge the urban and rural education gap, so that Atwima Kwanwoma could also produce high levels and responsible citizens to contribute their quota to the development of society, and the country as a whole.
