The Western North Regional Minister, Hon. Richard Ebbah Obeng has donated 60 dual desks to Asiedukuma D/A Basic School in the Bia West District.
The donation comes after viral video displaying on social media on the condition of students in the Asiedukuma D/A Basic School in the Western North region where students were seen sitting on blocks.
In the said video, the teacher who was concerned about the desk deficit in the Asiedukuma D/A Basic school and how that is affecting teaching and learning, shared his worries so with the motive of gaining some sort of assistance.
According to the Regional Minister the said video popped up at a time when the he had launched a campaign that sought to address the issue of desk deficits across the Western North region through the ‘1School Child 1Study Desk’ initiative and had even started distribution of desks to some schools in the region.
He indicated that Asiedukuma D/A Basic School has therefore received their share of study Desks of the Hon. Richard Ebbah Obeng’s policy and that is also to stress that, it will be a misinformation for a anyone to assume that what was in the video at the time is the current condition of the students.
Receiving the desks, the headmaster of the schools thanked the Regional Minister for his gesture.
“The School is pleased to receive these desks and we hope to receive more educational equipment that will add to the smooth learning and teaching in the school, “ he said.
