The Coastal Development Authority (CODA), under the $1 million per ward initiative, has commissioned four school projects in three central region wards to complement the education projects being built by the government.
Commissioned projects include; a 2-unit kindergarten block with ancillary facilities at Edukrom in Agona West constituency; a 6-unit classroom block with ancillary facilities at Osedzi in Ajumako Enyan Essiam constituency; a 3-unit classroom block with ancillary facilities at Breku in Assin North constituency; 3 unit class block with ancillary facilities in Assin North constituency.
CODA’s Managing Director, Jerry Ahmed Shaib, explained in his speech that the projects are funded under the Infrastructure Program for the Eradication of Poverty (IPEP).
He further disclosed that several educational projects are being constructed in the coastal development zone and will be put into operation soon.
He advised parents to make sure they invest in their children’s education as it is the only way to empower them for a better future.
According to him, most of the developed countries such as Malaysia, Singapore and South Korea have come so far in terms of development thanks to their committed efforts to invest in the education sector.
Agona West Constituency MP Cynthia Mamle Morrison thanked the President for the good initiative in establishing the Development Authorities.
According to her, the Coastal Development Authority has bridged the development gap by completing several projects in the area with more underway.
She also expressed her gratitude to the leaders and people of the communities for their support and commitment to the development program.
She further called on teachers and school authorities to manage the facilities well to encourage CODA and the government to bring more projects to their doorsteps.
