More than fifty (50) communities in the Garu-Tempane District, one of the newly established districts in the Upper East Region are to benefit from educational and other basic facilities.
Most schools in the district are mostly administered under trees. In view of this, efforts are under way to eliminate all schools under trees, a programme government is pursuing with all seriousness across the country.
The Chief Executive David Adakudugu stated that more than 49 selected communities identified as having infrastructural difficulties will benefit from construction of new classroom blocks to halt the ordeal of having classes under tress.
He said the project is ongoing in earnest where six and three classroom blocks are under construction while others are yet to be awarded for work to commence on them.
Susude, Bimpila, Buwia, Takar, Akara and Binwoko are but few of the communities benefiting from the educational package.
Since water is also very essential to human and animal lives hence a number of boreholes are also being drilled in the various communities to offer not just water but clean water that will not be a source of waterborne diseases.
Additionally, Community-based Health Planning Service (CHPS) compound with boreholes will also be constructed to house trained nurses.
“The communities to benefit from these chips compounds include Kongo, Saneyabrogo, Kpata, Aloko, Kugri, among others” he stated.
Mr. David also made it known that this is just the beginning and that new projects will be awarded to contractors very soon.
