The World Vision organization, a Non Governmental Organization (NGO) has constructed a new primary school at Nyankpala South electoral area in Tolon District to ensure the education for the underprivileged children in that locality.
In an interview with Ghanadistricts.com the Assembly man for the area, Abdulai Yakubu stated that abject poverty has prevented most of the parents from sending their wards to school, a situation which is deeply worrying as there is the need for the children who will be the future leaders of the country to receive the best of formal education.
He said due to the poor financial strength of the parents most of the kids in the area end up dropping out of school.
Hon. Abdulai Yakubu noted that the citing of the school in the area will also save the pupils the unpleasant exercise of walking long distances to attend school in other villages.
He disclosed that the school also consists of a day care centre where parents can drop their babies off to well trained nannies to cater for infants and depart to their various places of work.
Abdulai Yakubu also appealed to the Assembly to connect the area to the national grid to enable students study their given notes and do their individual assignments in the evenings.
