A non-governmental organisation, Pencils of Promise is putting up a new classroom block for the Avekpordome Basic School in the Ketu North District of the Volta Region.
Pupils of the school have been studying under trees and other precarious structures like shades made of palm fronds but the intervention of the NGO will bring a lot of relief to the school.
Pencils and Promise is currently constructing a five and six unit classroom blocks with auxiliary facilities for the school.
Speaking at the ground breaking ceremony to kickstart the commencement of the blocks, the headmaster, Mr Patrick Dotsey Ahiave said the new blocks would go a long way to improve academic work in the school.
He was also confident that the new structures when completed would now make the school one of the preferred choices for pupils and teachers who seldom patronize it.
Safe in mind that education is the surest way to defeat poverty, ignorance and inequality, the Country Director of Pencils of Promise, Mr Freeman Gobah said his outfit will continue to fund school projects in the country to enhance quality teaching and learning.
Torgbey Avadada Esu IV, Chief of Avekpordome also expressed his gratitude to Pencils of Promise for deeming it right to select the school for the project with regards to other surrounding community schools adding that the community as a whole will put in their best to see a successful completion of the project.
