PICTURE REPORT OF KONKON - TX SCHOOL INAUGURATION COMMISSIONING OF KINDERGARTEN AND JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL BLOCK ON 7TH DECEMBER, 2017 AT KONKKON, GA SOUTH, GREATER ACCRA
DONOR: TZU-XING FOUNDATION, TAIWAN
In July 2017, Tzu-Xing (TX) Foundation, a philanthropic organisation based in Taiwan, signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with ActionAid Ghana to fund the construction of a Kindergarten and Junior High School block at Konkon in the GA South area of Greater Accra. After a groundbreaking ceremony in July, ActionAid immediately commenced the construction of the two facilities.
With regular monitoring and supervision by the Greater Accra and Volta Regional Programme team of ActionAid Ghana, the two facilities were completed in December, complete with the installation of playground equipment, furniture and other facilities to promote quality education for the children of Konkon and surrounding communities. To ensure effective learning, teaching aids such as toys and reading objects were provided for the children.
The facilities will benefit about 450 children and pupils of the Konkon M.A. Basic and Junior High School (JHS) who had been studying under difficult conditions where lack of good classrooms hampered the quality of teaching and learning.
Tzu-Xing Foundation wholly sponsored the construction of the two facilities at the cost of $105, 307. ActionAid shares the vision of TX Foundation–that every child deserves to learn under healthy conditions in a friendly and quality and progressive learning environment. TX believes in Kindness Walking for Education and they walked the talk in their philanthropic activities in many developing countries.
ActionAid Ghana has been working in the Konkon community in the Ga South District for over 15 years, implementing development interventions in education, women’s rights, youth empowerment and community development.
