Effia MP donates 100 dual desks to Al-Azharia Islamic school
In his quest to reduce the numerous challenges faced by schools in his constituency, Member of Parliament for the Effia Constituency of the Western Region, Hon. Joseph Cudjoe has donated one hundred pieces of dual desks to the Al-Azharia Islamic school in Efiakuma.
The desks which were procured through the MP’s common fund, is meant to increase enrollment and also offer students a sound environment to study. It is also to reduce the challenges where students are compelled to sit in pairs. A situation which makes learning difficult for the students. Authorities of the school were appreciative of the gesture, and described the donation as timely, since the school needed furniture to enhance teaching and learning.
“Lack of desks remains one of the biggest challenges in our school. We have written a lot of letters, and we are happy our MP has come to our aid. This will go a long way to enhance teaching and learning. We really appreciate what the MP has done for us.
“There are other challenges we face here, and this include the frequent reports of thieves invading the school. We have told the MP, and he has even started building a wall for us, which we are hoping it will be completed on time,” Headmistress of the school, Nana Ama Serwaa noted in an interview with Skyy News’ Nana Yaw Kumi.
Hon. Joseph Cudjoe, who is also the Deputy Minister for Energy, indicated that, the donation was part of his policy to ensure the delivery of quality education to students in his constituency. He said the Akuffo Addo government remains resolute in making sure every Ghanaian child is educated, at least to the senior high school level.
“Education is everything, that is why the NPP government is very concerned when it comes to education. We are bent on ensuring every Ghanaian child is educated in the next 20 years to enable them compete with the world. Most Ghanaians could not have the opportunity to receive education under the NDC administration that is why Nana Akuffo is spending millions of Ghana cedis to ensure every child receives free, quality education. These kids are the future of this country and so we have to support them with serene teaching and learning environment. We are working to ensure every school in this constituency benefits from this gesture,” Mr. Joseph Cudjoe noted, after handing over the furniture to the school.
