This is a rural school in the Eastern Region, running largely on the goodwill of its dedicated staff. Our representative, Patrick Nyante, visited the school and was impressed by the efforts made and the good relationship with the community. We received a request for funding for teachers’ tables and chairs, cupboards and pupils’ desks, with detailed cost estimates. We allocated £1240 towards this project.

Here is part of a thank you letter from Solomon Kwabena Gyimah on behalf of the school: I, on behalf of the staff, PTA executives of Siawkrom D/A Primary School and the entire community write to express our profound gratitude and appreciation for giving us a grant of GHC 6,800 for furniture in the school. the grant has made a significant impact in the social and academic life of the pupils. The memory of your organization will forever linger in the hearts of the school as you are the only organization that has extended an arm to the school. […] The furniture has made teaching and learning very effective, comfortable and conducive. […] The desks have solved the problem (of copying) and now comfortability, independent work is a hallmark. The pupils’ handwriting is now improving as a result of their new sitting arrangements. Teachers can now sit in the comfort of their chairs to mark pupils’ work and other related classroom tasks, which was not so in the past.
