Keta Nursing and Midwifery Training College cries for support

The Principal of Keta Nursing and Midwifery Training College in the Volta Region, Ms Mabel Kafui Torku, has expressed concern over the school’s inadequate hostel facilities.

She said the school, with a student’s popula­tion of about 849, had space for only 100 students in the hostel, where “the rest of 749 students must find their own apartment in town making it difficult for on-campus early morning and evening teaching and learning.”

Ms Torku, who disclosed this to the Ghana News Agen­cy (GNA) during an interview, further explained that most stu­dents were scattered in many apartments within the Keta and adjoining areas causing discomfort to the students and others.

“The safety of my students is not guaranteed since they are exposed to all forms of risks such as rape, sexual assaults, and others,” she added.

Other challenges, she mentioned, included lack of computer laboratory, inade­quate teaching materials and lack of teachers’ bungalow, among others.

Mr Foster Gbedenya, Dean of Student Affairs, revealed that the school would continue to do its best regardless of the challenges they faced.

“Our main aim and target is to produce best midwives and nurses to serve mother Ghana, and that is what we have been doing over the years,” she said.

Mr Gbedenya appealed to government, philanthropists to support the school to solve the many challenges confront­ing it.
