The Karaga District Assembly will soon establish an Education Endowment Fund to cater for needy but brilliant students in the area.
An amount of GH 10,000 cedis has been set aside as seed capital for the project to make it function properly.
Hon. Sulemana Hussein Issah, the District Chief Executive announced this at the opening ceremony of a two day stakeholder’s education forum sponsored by a Non Governmental Organization called Ibis Ghana under the auspices of the Alliance for Change project.
The Karaga DCE reminded parents of their responsibility to educate their children.
“I wish to caution that parents should not toy with their children’s education as it would be at the peril of our own future and the future of the district,” he stressed.
Hon. Sulemana Hussein said as part of the assembly’s commitment to improve educational infrastructure in the district, the assembly in 2009/2010 constructed 30 news classroom blocks and several teacher bungalows.
On teachers’ enhancement, the DCE said the assembly sponsored 180 teacher trainees to undertake top up programmes at the cost of GH 21.085.00 cedis.
He commended Ibis Ghana and other development partners for helping to improve the standard of education in the district.
The Alliance for Change is an education project funded by DANIDA which targets at improving the quality of teaching and learning through the increased use of pupil-centred, gender-sensitive and context adopted teaching methodologies in schools.
