The Government of Japan, under the Japanese Grant Assistance for Grassroots Human Security Projects (GGHSP) scheme, is funding the construction of a boy’s dormitory at the Winneba Senior High School.
Naoto Nikai, Japanese Ambassador to Ghana, who initialed the contract, said the project costs $235,400.
The project, being implemented by Row Education and Programmes, shall witness the construction of a 13-room dormitory block with sanitary facilities.
After completion of the entire block, an estimated number of 160 students are expected to benefit whilst pursuing their secondary level education.
Since its establishment in 1949, Winneba Senior High School has over years seen progressive academic performance and patronage.
With its strategic location in the Central Region, the school has also attracted many students from various regions in the country.
Although, it is highly recommended for pursuing secondary level education, the institution has unfortunately been put under pressure due to the limited facilities to accommodate all the students admitted.
Currently, the boy’s dormitory faces immense overcrowding and its bed capacity of 360 is currently accommodating male students up to about 700.
