The North East Gonja District in the Savannah Region of Ghana is facing challenges in providing quality education for its children. In Kpalbe Islamic Kindergarten/Primary School and Kidenge Presby Kindergarten/Primary School, over half of the students lack furniture, and the situation is reflected in all 52 public basic schools in the district.

Due to congestion, students often sit on the bare floor, which can be uncomfortable and discouraging for them, and some parents take it as a reason not to send their children to school. According to the North East Gonja District Directorate of Education, the district currently has 224 classroom blocks and needs an additional 66 to address the challenge of congestion.

The district also needs an additional 150 teachers to effectively handle the children. This situation is negatively impacting the quality of basic education delivery in the area. The Assembly is collaborating with development partners to respond to the challenges.

For instance, it procured and distributed 500 dual desks to schools in the area and is working to procure and distribute 1,000 dual desks this year. Additionally, the Assembly has decided to commit more resources from the Gulf of Guinea Northern Regions Social Cohesion project to the construction of new classroom blocks and rehabilitation of dilapidated ones to address the issue of congestion in the classrooms in the area.
