Firm Foundation, Bolgatanga

This school has changed its name to PLATO ACADEMY, BOLGATANGA.

The school was founded in 2010 and is personally known to GSA supporter Sylvia Lynn-Meaden.  Sylvia and GSA combined to send £1400 to the school for the construction of a new classroom block.  Dorothy Abaah sent this report and pictures:   ” I write to inform you of the progress made in the building of the classroom block.  — The contractor advised that once the building is a store-building, it was technically unwise to put up the rooms piece by piece. I therefore used the money to buy materials which were used to cast 32 pillars. What is left is the casting of the lintel which materials are available. Our problems are the roofing of the building and the partitioning of the classrooms.  However, I was able to construct a decent room to accommodate class 6 pupils. The work is not progressing fast because the contractor is caught up with Government contracts far away from Bolgatanga.  Thank you. “                                                             img007 img008 img009
