A GHC 170,000.00 fully furnished kindergarten block (KG) has been commissioned for the Addonkwanta Anglican Basic School in the Akuapem North Municipality of the Eastern Region.
The school block has three classrooms, with an office, store rooms, cardboards, 50 tables and 100 chairs.
The project is a partnership between St Augustine Development Centre, a development arm of the Anglican Church in Akropong and Compassion International Ghana, a Non-Governmental organisation aimed at equipping the less privileged in their catchment area and ensuring that the vulnerable had a good study environment.
The project is expected to benefit close to 50 children, who currently attend classes in a deplorable wooden structure.
The school currently has a student population of 240 from the kindergarten to the Junior High School level.
The Akuapem North Municipal Chief Executive (MCE), Mr Dennis Aboagye, who joined in the commissioning of the project said, there were 43 deplorable school structures in the municipality that needed urgent attention.
He commended the two organisations for helping to reduce the deficit of deplorable structures in the municipality.
Mr Aboagye indicated that, there were a lot of religious organisations in the municipality and the assembly would be calling on them and hope that they would come out to complement the efforts of government.
He advised the community and the school authorities to periodically maintain the structure so that it can stand the test of time to benefit the majority of the people.
