The Adakura Primary and Junior High Schools in the Bolgatanga East District have received 60 pieces of furniture from the Silas Amoah Foundation to beef up their furniture situation. Headmistress of the Adakura primary school, Celina Baba, said the primary school had not received furniture for its population of 369 pupils for a long time.


She said the furniture that was in good condition for the entire primary school was just 62 pieces. And as a result, Madam Baba said “the children were suffering and they were lying on the floor because the was no furniture to study on.”

She said the 60-furniture donated by the Silas Amoah Foundation will facilitate smooth teaching and learning and improve the academic performance of the pupils.

“We are really happy today, even though it is raining. We are still in the rain because of what we have seen today. We pray to God that the donor, Mr. Mathew Silas Amoah that gave us this furniture, God will bless him”

Nsobila Alfreda, a student of the Adakura JHS, described how hectic the situation was without adequate furniture, which compelled, “some of us to study on the bare floor and others had to bring stools from home for studies.” She heaved a sigh of relief at the gesture and thanked Mathew Silas Amoah, founder of the Silas Amoah Foundation, for his benevolence.

Mathew Silas Amoah through his foundation, also supported the school with 5 desktop computers to improve the teaching of ICT. He also donated 2 footballs, and metallic poles to be erected on the school football pitch. Mr. Amoah also promised to provide the school with 2 sets of football jerseys, and 10 boxes of streetlight bulbs. 

Headteacher for the JHS, Safianu Yakubu was full of excitement and said he would have ordained the young politician for his benevolence if he had the mandate, “however, the Almighty Allah has ordained you already” 

Speaking to the media after the gesture, Mathew Silas Amoah, who hails from the community, said his attention was drawn to how students lie prostrate on their bellies to study.

“It is not proper for children to lie on their tummies at this age to write. So, as part of my foundation and being a son of this community, we decided to make this donation to them”, he said.

He added that he decided to improve the furniture situation for effective teaching and learning because development is a shared responsibility since “government alone cannot take the whole responsibility” 

Mr. Amoah said the Adakura primary/JHS is one of the oldest schools in the district that has produced many people who are doing well either in the public or private sector, “But it seems most of us are turning our back at the school but my foundation and myself will come to the aid of the school in the best way we can”

District Director of Education for Bolgatanga East, George Asira, thanked Mr. Amoah for his support to the sector. He entreated teachers, students, and community members to take proper care of the items.
