Basic pupils numbering about 180 in five selected schools in remote communities in the Bawku West District have received mathematical sets and other learning materials.
The initiative, according to Lawyer Maxwell Ziyerley Agbambilla a native of the area, is geared towards assisting the beneficiaries to adequately prepare themselves for the Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE).
Speaking to A1 Radio, Lawyer Agbambilla stressed further that the learning material deficit in the schools was particularly worrying.
“I believe in inclusive education and after I visited some of the schools, I realized that some of the final-year pupils were not having mathematical sets to practice hands-on. This really hurt me, and I said to myself, though I do not have the resources to provide for all the schools, the 5 most deprived basic schools, I can do something, [the] reason for these books and mathematical sets. And I must say that this is not all, I’ll mobilize myself in the coming days to see how I can provide for as many as I can.”
The beneficiary basic schools are Widnaba, Tilli, Lamboya, Kansogo, and Kukuruzua Junior High Schools.
Lawyer Agbambilla used the opportunity to call on natives from far and near to assist in giving back to society by assisting these deprived schools with basic learning materials.
“…with collective efforts, as natives living far or near, we can bring smiles to these little ones who just want an exercise book or a mathematical set to learn in school yet do not have.”
