La-Amanfro school project gets help


Community members of La-Amanfro in the Adenta Municipality has initiated the construction of a 16-classroom school complex for the community to make education easily accessible to their children.

When completed, the school complex would have a kindergarten department, primary and junior high schools in addition to a library, sickbay, offices and computer centre.

The project which started five years ago was estimated at about GH¢ 50,000 over a one year construction period.

Community members however abandoned the 45 percent completed project due to lack of funds, shattering the dreams of pupils who currently travels to attend school at Amrahia, Oyibi and Adenta.

The Quaye-Nungua Foundation, an educational non-governmental organization on Friday presented an amount of GH¢ 22,400 to the community to facilitate the roofing of the school complex.

Mrs Beatrice Tsotsoo Adom, Spokesperson for the foundation said members of the foundation donated the amount upon the request of the community members.

Mrs Adom who is the Headmistress of Achimota School said the presentation was in line with her father's vision of providing education for the less privileged in society.

She said her father, Mr Quaye-Nungua single handedly built the Nungua Senior High School and the Quaye-Nungua Roman Catholic School for people of Nungua even though he never attended any school.

Mr. Adjetey Lomo, member of the Council of Elders of the community thanked the foundation for their support and promised to use the money for the intended purpose.
