Amanfi East receives educational support


six-unit classroom block Source Trust Ghana Limited has received US$118,000 to construct a six-unit classroom block and two-unit urinal for Aserewadi Primary School in the Amanfi East District of the Central Region, under the Japanese Grant Assistance for Grassroots Human Security Projects (GGHSP) scheme.

The classroom block is expected to accommodate 200 pupils.
Mr. Naoto Nikai, Japanese Ambassador, said the facility will create a conducive learning environment for the children in the community and surrounding areas.

He said the embassy provided the facility with the hope that it would become an outstanding place of learning that would generate school children who would go on to become great educationists, medical doctors among others.

?Our intention with this assistance is to support Aserewadi Primary School to overcome the current challenges in carrying out their academic activities.?

He said the school currently has an old dilapidated three-unit structure which is partitioned with wooden panels to serve seven classes, including a kindergarten.

He added that during school hours, class activities interfere with each other, as neighboring classes are heard loudly over the wooden partitions.

?Apart from its deteriorating structure, the overcrowded condition of the school has also discouraged many children from pursuing their basic education within the community,? he said.

He said it was his hope that the school becomes the centre of excellence for basic and primary education not only in the Amanfi District but throughout the Central Region.

He urged the leaders of the community and other stakeholders to commit themselves to do all they can to ensure that the facility enjoys constant maintenance.

The GGHSP scheme was set up in 1989. Since then, it has funded a total of 238 projects country-wide.
