THE ASHAIMAN office of the Ghana Education Service (GES) has taken delivery of some 500 furniture valued GH¢65, 000 in support of 13 schools in the municipality from Urban Development Grant (UDG).
Three hundred mono and 200 dual-desks, including 12 cupboards, 12 sheds and some teachers’ chairs and tables which were presented by the Ashaiman Municipal Assembly (ASHMA) are to help address the acute furniture problem in some schools in Ashaiman.
Presenting the items in a short ceremony held at ASHMA, Municipal Chief Executive (MCE), Ibrahim Baidoo, explained that the donation was meant to help create the right conditions for effective teaching and learning, adding, ‘We are developing a new modus of operandi where items are presented to needed organisation as a complete package. We are done with building of some schools in the municipality and we are presenting the furniture as a complete package for the schools to take off once.’
Mr Ibrahim indicated that his outfit was working harder to tackle the problem of congestion and inadequate furniture in schools in the municipality with the construction of some schools.
“On completion of these two projects, the problems of over-population and its resultant challenges will be permanently solved,” he explained.
Receiving the items, the Municipal Director of Education, Patty Assan, was grateful to the assembly for the donation.
