General News | UNICEF distributes 2,040 bicycles to school girls

Thu, 18 Jan, 2018

Kayera (E/R), Jan 18, GNA – A total of 2,040 bicycles have been distributed to school girls in four districts – Afram Plains North, Afram Plains South, Krachi East and Nchumuru, under a project launched to promote girl-child education in these areas.

Dubbed “Complementary Basic Education (CBE) Program” it is being implemented by the Afram Plains Development Organization, an NGO, with support from the United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund (UNICEF).

 

Mr. Modoc Omoro Awudu Yakubu, Executive Chairman of the Organization, said the goal was to get every girl child, not in school, enrolled.

 

He expressed concern about the situation where many children had to make daily round trip of about nine kilometres to attend school and said the situation should not continue.

 

He added that every effort should be made to ensure that education was made accessible to everybody, regardless of the location.

 

He announced that 3,668 children had been enrolled in school under the CBE Program and out of this figure, 2,040 were girls.

 

The bicycles, he noted, were meant to aid the beneficiaries to get to school early and advised that they took good care of them.

 

Madam Irene Ayenoh, the Afram Plains North District Education Director, applauded the NGO and UNICEF for what she labeled as “the wonderful gesture” and said it would boost efforts at raising the quality of education.

 

The five-year CBE Program is focusing priority effort on education promotion in deprived communities in the Eastern and parts of the Volta Region.
