The District Education Observer Committee, DEOC chairman of the Huhunya Presbyterian Junior High School in the Yilo Krobo Municipality of the Eastern Region, Mr. Fuseini Ali Alhassan is already looking beyond DEOP II as he advocates for a DEOP III project.
This follows what he observes as a massive impact made by the project on so far in its targeted project schools including the Huhunya Presbyterian Junior High School which access to teaching and learning materials was facilitated through the intervention of the project.
Mr. Fuseini Ali Alhassan has attributed the provision of teaching and learning materials for the school to Rite FM’s District Education Observer Programme II project currently being ran in the municipality.
He said the DEOP II program being ran by Rite FM with the support of STAR-Ghana, the European Union, DANIDA and UKaid was a timely development which has led to the intervention of providing basic teaching and learning materials.
“Rite FM’s DEOP programme has solved the school’s previous challenges pertaining to teaching and learning materials,” Mr. Fuseini asserted.
The Huhunya Presbyterian Junior High School before the commencement of the program struggled with the non-availability of teaching and learning materials. However, the intervention of the program has occasioned the supply of these materials.
The project consequently coerced school authorities and the Parent Teacher Association to mobilize internally generated funds (IGF) to fund the provision of the teaching and learning materials.
The visibly delighted committee chairman of the DEOP II project while applauding the project for its tremendous efforts in the lives of the various communities, expressed glee in an interview with Edwin Larbi during a DEOP monitoring exercise intended to assess the school’s state of affairs.
Mr. Fuseini also commended Rite FM for the training and enlightenment offered the school and its staff and authorities and for transforming the state of the school from its difficulties to a more convenient situation.
He took the opportunity to express his gratitude to every community member for their commitment and contributions for the ‘life changing project’ while suggesting and pleading for a DEOP III project, aimed at providing more learning equipment in the school such as computer labs, libraries, among others as well as moral education for girls.
“If a DEOP III project will factor educating the students, especially the girls on desisting from waywardness and concentrate solely on their studies to realize a bright future, they will really appreciate it,” he added.
STAR-Ghana with financial funding from DANIDA, Ukaid and the European Union is supporting Rite FM in the ongoing District Education Observer Project (DEOP II) which seeks to help improve the academic performance of schools in the Yilo Krobo Municipality.
