Earlier, we reported that the desks sponsored by Best of Both, British School of Brussels, were almost finished (read the article here). Trax Ghana is happy to announce that the first 130 desks have been delivered yesterday. Trax Ghana’s Schools Project Coordinator, Botozan Anane, has successfully handed over sixty dual desks to the Primary School in Daachio and seventy to the one in Duusi. We are certain that students will be very surprised and excited to see that they no longer need to sit on the ground when they return on 9 September. Today and tomorrow, another thirty desks will be brought to Duusi. The schools in Zuarungu-Moshie and Gaare-Gbani will also receive their furniture before the start of the 2014-2015 academic year.
Trax Ghana, together with the Best of Both (a charity run by students from the British School of Brussels and the Antwerp International School, Belgium) works to improve the educational facilities of schools in rural areas of the Upper East Region, Ghana. At the start of the project, the five schools have identified their most pressing needs. One of them was the shortage of classroom furniture, which forces some students to sit on the ground. Earlier, Best of Both, Antwerp International School has already donated more than 100 desks to their partner school in Pelungu.
