Over 6,500 beneficiaries of the Livelihood Empowerment Against Poverty (LEAP) programme in the Kadjebi District have received payment for the 81st and 82nd cycles. The disbursement of a total amount of GH₵318,812 was made to 2,159 male and 4,386 female beneficiaries from 2,037 households. This initiative is aimed at empowering the people economically, reducing poverty, and improving their standards of living.

In addition to the LEAP programme, 866 beneficiaries from nine communities have also been enrolled onto the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS) to enable them to access healthcare. The District Chief Executive (DCE), Mr. Wilson Agbanyo, revealed that 40 new registrations had been completed, with 17 males and 23 females receiving their NHIS cards. Also, 826 people, comprising 406 males and 420 females, have had their NHIS cards renewed.

To improve the learning outcomes in the education sector, the Ministry of Education has selected two schools – Kadjebi E.P and Pampawie D/A Junior High Schools – to benefit from the Smart Classrooms project. The project aims to equip existing classrooms with a teacher laptop with learning management classroom system, 50 tablets, projector, content access point, storage unit, virtual library, coding robotics A1 kit, and curriculum and teacher 4.0 curricula and training. The project will promote the use of audio, video, animations, and images to enhance the teaching and learning process.

However, the DCE disclosed that an attempt to meet cattle farmers to discuss ways to quell potential conflicts between indigenous farmers and Fulani herdsmen failed. Also, the two factions in the Dodi-Atta Kofi Muslim community Chief Imam Succession case did not help to resolve the case. The District Security Council (DISEC) is currently monitoring the situation and taking steps to ban Friday prayers at the mosque.

For the most part, the LEAP programme has been instrumental in reducing poverty and improving the standard of living of beneficiaries in the Kadjebi District. The enrolment of beneficiaries onto the NHIS scheme and the selection of schools for the Smart Classrooms project will further improve the lives of people in the district. The DISEC’s efforts to quell potential conflicts are commendable, and it is hoped that the situation will be resolved amicably.
