Education is key for development. However, access to good, quality education hasn't been the lot of many people in most parts of Ghana. Unfortunately, my trip on the Reach Beyond Outreach program has revealed to me that there still exist some ''schools under trees''. Jangbaragayili is a community in the Central Gonja District of the Northern Region located about 29 km away from Tamale heading to Kumasi on the Kumasi-Accra road. The community is faced with a lot challenges and education is no exception. The school currently has a two-room structure with a third been a tent made out of straw. During the raining season, teachers and students have to scramble for the little space available.In an interview with the assistant headmaster, he revealed that this structure accomomdates pupils from class 1 to class 6. Student without furniture have to lie on their belly to read and study. He made a passionate appeal for urgent help to salvage a situation which he describes as has no end in sight.(If you read this post and you are interested in helping please contact me and i would be glad to assist with further details)
