According to the Director of United Purpose Madam Juliet Lampor, in other to support quality education in the deprived communities they have formed club in the schools known as (Youth for Change) with the aim of “Breaking poverty chain in Ghana”, she therefore, advised parents to encourage their children to go school rather sending them to farms during school hours.
The head teacher of Chambah Akura D/A primary school Alexander Gidisu expressed his profound gratitude to the organizations, ‘I believe the school bags given to them will help them a lot because most of them don’t have it and we the teachers find this situation very worrying since they can’t keep their notes for long periods especially during raining season, the books easily becomes damaged. Now, the books can be well protected’. He said.
