Asene (E/R), April 18, GNA - The District Chief Executive (DCE) for Asene, Manso, Akroso District, Mr Alex Incoom has presented bags of cement, iron rods and other building materials to the Asene Salvation Army Primary School.
The donation is for the commencement of work on a two-unit kindergarten (KG) block with an office and a store room.
The initiative was to encourage the communities in the district to undertake their own projects while the Assembly also provide them with the needed technical and material support.
The DCE following his tour to educational facilities to access infrastructure deficits in September last year, observed the deplorable wooden structure that was accommodating the KGs of the school and promised to assist the community to use self-help initiative to construct a befitting KG block to replace the deplorable structure.
Mr Incoom presenting the items, charged the Parents- Teachers Association (PTA) and other stakeholders in education to support the educational policies of government to accelerate the production of the required human resources for transformation of the economy for the long term vision of building a Ghana Beyond Aid.
Mr. Incoom encouraged the public to revive the spirit of community self-help in undertaking their own projects while the Assembly supported them with the needed technical and material support.
According to him, the time was due for people to show interest in the development of their own communities by undertaking self-help projects to complement the efforts of government.
Receiving the items on behalf of the school, the Head teacher, Mr Emmanuel Osei, thanked the government for the free education policy.
He bemoaned the continued resistance of parents to support the school in times of difficulty and hoped that the pupils would pass whatever message they have had from the DCE to their parents to encourage them have a change of mind.
Mr Osei appealed to the Assembly and the Member of Parliament for the Area, Mr George Kwame Aboagye to assist in catering for the labour cost of work on the construction of the KG block.
