Mrs Georgina Mensah, Krachi East Municipal Director of Education, has inaugurated two makeshift schools at Okuma-Akura and Adakope, near Dambai , for continuous teaching and learning.

She told parents and other stakeholders that education was the best legacy and inheritance that could be given to children; and it should be a joint effort of society to give adequate education to children.
Mrs Mensah appealed to both local and International not-for-profit organisations to support the makeshift schools and provide infrastructure, desks books, pencils, erasers, sharpness, and other teaching learning materials in the school.
Mr Emmanuel Ahiador, Circuit Supervisor urged parents and guardians to pay adequate attention and monitor their wards academic progression.
