The Regional Advisory Information and Network Systems (RAINS), a Tamale based non-governmental organisation dedicated to providing humanitarian services to deprived communities and people, has given Savelugu School for Deaf with GH=A2 12,260 (122.6 million cedis) for infrastructure development. The HOPE for Children, a UK based charity NGO working in partnership with RAINS, provided the funds.

Speaking at the presentation ceremony at Savelugu in the Savelugu/Nanton District at the weekend Mr. Musah Alhassan, Projects Manager of RAINS, appealed to other stakeholders in education to pay attention to special education in the country. He said RAINS was doing everything possible to bridge the gap between boys and girls in the education sector in the Northern Region particularly in rural communities and gave the assurance that the NGO would source funds and use it to provide school uniforms for all the girls at the Savelugu School for the Deaf. Mrs. Azara Mahamadu, Ghana Country representative for HOPE for Children, said HOPE believed in a world where everybody was valued hence the need to give special attention to deaf and dumb education in the Northern Region. She said HOPE for Children also raised funds to support orphaned children, support development projects and institutions that sought to improve the lives of individuals in society. Mrs Mahamadu said the NGO had spent 460 million cedis in the first quarter of this year to support special education, institutions and individuals in the Northern Region. Mrs. Immaculate Atoriyah, Headmistress of the school who received the cheque, enumerated problems facing the school and appealed to other NGOs and corporate bodies to assist in solving them. She mentioned transportation and water as the major problems facing the school and appealed for assistance.
