They said the facility is to enhance teaching and learning in the community.

Commissioning the KG block, the DCE said the government prioritizes education, especially at the basic level.

According to him, in the last four years, more than 40 classroom blocks have been constructed in the Akontombra district with sponsorship from the District Assembly Common Fund (DACF), GETFund, and the One million dollars per constituency initiative.

"Teachers and pupils are not motivated to teach and learn in dilapidated structures so the government and the assembly will continue to ensure better educational infrastructures are provided he added.”

He further commended the government and GETFund for giving the Akontombra district its share of the national cake and promised them that he will continue to engage the various communities on their priority needs and provide them accordingly.

The MP announced that the new KG block was the sixth GETFund funded kindergarten block to be constructed in the Akontombra District in the last four years and commended GETFund for the projects.

He pleaded with the school management committee to take very good care of the facility and all government buildings so that the District Assembly would not have to use additional funds to maintain them.

Nana Krobea Asante, Chief of Ackaakrom, expressed gratitude to the MP and DCE for the number of projects in the District of which Ackaakrom was not left out.

Mr. Nicholas Anim Amoako, Ackaakrom School Improvement Support Officer (SISO), who represented the Akontombra District Director of Education, lauded the Government for the construction of the kindergarten block, which he noted would help increase enrollment in the school.

The project, funded by the GETFund at the cost of Gh300, 000 comes with an office, store and washrooms, furniture, storage tank, and kitchen for the schools feeding programme, among others.
