Ghanaian actress, Moesha Boduong, has donated a set of desks and stationery to some needy students at Tebu M/A Basic School.
Tebu M/A Basic School which is in the Ga South Municipality of the Greater Accra region was in the news last year for sitting on the bare floor to write with others using their laps as tables to write on.
The younger ones in Kindergarten also lie on the floor which some of them complaining of back and spinal aches.
Some of the pupils also sit on stones and plastics chairs. The pupils also risk contracting various types of diseases due to the lack of a proper water system in the school. This was disclosed by the head teacher of the school Emmanuel Bagut in an interview with TV3 who indicated that “the school lacks enough classrooms, potable water, tables and chairs as well as basic learning tools for teaching and learning”.
The lack of infrastructure forces some of the pupils to sit under sheds which leak whenever there it rains.
Emmanuel Bagut said “the only block building in the school cannot house all the students so then some have to go outside and sit under a shed and learn” adding that ever since the collapse of the old school block, some of the students have to move to the library and others under an old shed in the school.
Moesha’s donation to the school serves as a response to the school’s cry for aid.
