GSA sent a grant to complete the teachers’ quarters. Here are extracts from the Headteacher’s letter of thanks, dated 28 August 2018.
“The entire Gurugu community, staff and pupils wish to express their profound gratitude for your immense support towards their Teachers’ Quarters Project. The project was started in 2015 by the community members, and was stalled due to inadequate funds for its completion. This adversely affected teacher attendance, since the majority of teachers commute from Tamale to Gurugu. Your timely intervention has improved teacher attendance to 80% as compared to previous attendance. [… This has resulted in a] 60% increase in pupil enrollment. We will not relent on our efforts to say thank you.”
signed Yakubu Abdul-Rahman, Headteacher.
