Community builds school block through self-help

The chiefs and people of Muramura, a farming community near Ahyiresu in the Asante-Akim South District, through self-help are building a block of classrooms for the local Junior High School (JHS).

They are contributing both labour and financial resources towards the project.

It will replace an old classroom structure that has developed cracks and gaping holes on the floors with the roofing hanging perilously on weak walls.

Mr. De-graft Forkuo, the District Chief Executive (DCE), on Tuesday joined the people at a durbar held to raise funds in support of its implementation and saluted them for taking the right step.

He said it was refreshing that they had taken the initiative to complement government’s effort at ensuring that every child had access to quality education.

He pledged the assembly’s backing and said it would supply 50 bags of cement towards the project.

Nana Amo Gyekye, the chief of the town, said they would do everything to ensure that the project was successfully completed to provide academic-friendly environment for the school children and their teachers.

He described the present state of affairs as completely unacceptable and said that could not be allowed to continue.
