Adesuapa Foundation, a Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO), has built and commissioned a modern classroom block for the Agyeibikrom community in the Ahafo Ano South West District of the Ashanti Region.
The project comprises a two-unit Kindergarten (KG) block and a three bedroom teachers quarters.
Mr. Joseph Frimpong Bonsu, District Chief Executive (DCE) for the Ahafo Ano South West Assembly, expressed gratitude to the organisation for the project, noting that the process of development was a shared responsibility.
He pleaded with other stakeholders to emulate the shining example of the Adesuapa Foundation to complement the government’s efforts at improving the standard of education in the country.
The DCE disclosed that through the effort of Mr. Johnson Kwaku Adu, Member of Parliament (MP) for the Ahafo Ano South West Constituency, the Agyeibi community had a six-unit classroom block, funded by the Ghana Education Trust Fund (GETFund).
He charged parents to be responsible as far as the education of their wards was concerned.
DCE Frimpong Bonsu noted that the government had made education free at the Senior High School level, and for that matter, there was the need for parents to ensure that all their children of school-going age enrolled in schools.
Mr. Justin Kwesi Botor, District Education Director, also pleaded with teachers and the residents of the community to cultivate the maintenance culture to ensure that the facility lasted to serve the intended purpose for the benefit of future generations.
Christen Muller, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Adesuapa Foundation, commended the residents of the community for their support for the successful implementation of the project, and advised the school children to make good use of the facility.
She urged the community members to always adopt a good maintenance culture to protect the project, and promised that her outfit would provide the same project in other areas of the District.
Nana Ahenkan, Queenmother of Agyeibikrom, appealed to the DCE, MP and the government to assist with other developmental projects, including their roads and electricity.
Mr. Elvis Owusu, Headmaster of the Agyeibi D/A Basic School, on behalf of the school management, expressed their gratitude to the Adesuapa Foundation for the project.
