Headmaster of Agomor calls on government to fix roads to increase enrollment.

The Headmaster of Agormor –Agado D/A Basic School, Mr. Degbey Augustine Yao is appealing to non –governmental organisations  (NGO’S) and Corporate Ghana to assist pupils and students  in the Agormor Circuit of the Akatsi North District in the Volta Region with learning materials that will promote quality education in the country.

According to him, the parents of his pupils and students find it difficult to raise money to buy exercise books among other learning materials for their wards because of the low source of income by the people in the community.

As a result of this, teachers end up using their capitation grants to provide the needy students with the  needed  materials that helps to enhance teaching and learning in the school.

In an interview with Universal Light Media (UNILIME) Foundation, an NGO committed to humanitarian activities during their fourth Annual Outreach Programme, Mr. Yao disclosed that, this has made  teaching and learning very difficult.

He said, although government is doing its best, , there is a need for other benevolent organisations and individuals to partner or support  government’s effort.

 

Challenges

Students are confronted with several challenges especially when it rains. The roads became muddy since they are not tarred while  these students walk long distances along the roads. As a result they  are compelled to stay at home.

Mr. Yao noted that, for most times, students have to stay at home for some weeks because their untarred  roads get flooded after the rains making the journey the school difficult.

“We are appealing to government to come to our aid to help construct good roads and bridges so that students can be easily transported to school from their various houses,” he appealed.

The headmaster indicated that, during election, politicians promise to construct good roads for them after they assume office but the story changes when they get the nod.

Akatsi North district is  one of the newly created districts in the country created in 2012. The district presented 375 candidates in the 2013 BECE and had a total percentage pass of 18 percent.

However in 2014, when the district presented 323 candidates to the BECE, there was a significant improvement to 38 percent.

Stakeholders of education in the district are optimistic that, their 426 BECE candidates presented this year,  will all come out with flying colours increasing the percentage of pass in the district.

Background

UNILIME Foundation has been in existence for four years with the aim of empowering ordinary individuals to become competent professional in all fields, unearthing and helping the less privileged.

The organisation has made several donations to  orphanages and has organized seminars to empower the youth to better their livves.
