Asoegoom (U/E), July 10, GNA – Ms Rukaya Abdulai, a Philanthropist, has donated furniture worth GHc 1,300.00 to the Sumbrungu-Asoegoom Primary School in the Bolgatanga Municipality of the Upper East Region.
The furniture, including four hexagonal tables and 24 chairs was to help solve the problem of furniture, hampering the effective teaching and learning at the Nursery level at the primary school.
The donation was in response to a request made by Mr George Gbenga Solomon, Head teacher of the school in a post on facebook depicting the plight of the children due to the lack of furniture.
Ms Abdulai stated that quality education at the nursery level on the academic calendar was very crucial to attaining skilled human resource that could contribute significantly to the development of the nation.
She said it was hurting to see the future of the innocent children being threatened as result of the lack of furniture when she could contribute to partly solve the problem.
The Philanthropist attributed the poor performance of pupils particularly at the Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) to the lack of quality education which is mostly due to the absence of enabling environment including furniture, books among others to promote effective academic work.
Ms Abdulai commended the Head teacher for his quality leadership and selfless service to create a better future for the children through the various means he employs to solicit support to improve conditions in the school.
She therefore, appealed to stakeholders including government, politicians, parents, religious and traditional authorities towards contribute towards nursery education, especially in rural Public schools.
Thanking Ms Abdulai for her kind gesture, the Head teacher indicated that the donation was a positive relief to the school and would boost academic work, especially at the nursery level.
