Education is the foundation of National development.
Several challenges impede the delivery of quality education to many, especially, those in hard to reach and underdeveloped communities. The prevailing Covid-19 pandemic has presented new challenges in the provision of quality education.
The Volta River Authority (VRA), in an attempt to bridge the educational inequalities has donated educational materials to 30 Schools in five Regions through the use of drones. The first batch of presentation was at Nkwakubiw in the Asuogyaman District of the Eastern Region.
The Volta River Authority (VRA), was birthed 60 years ago to provide the nation’s power. In line with the anniversary, CEO of VRA, Emmanuel Antwi Darkwah was optimistic the educational materials and Covid-19 materials will go a long way in making a difference in the lives of the students.
The DCE for Asuogyaman, Samuel Agyekum, said government is bent on ensuring that no child is left behind in the area of education. He praised VRA for keeping the nation lighted these past six decades.
It is expected that 16,000 will benefit from the educational supplies.
