PARDA Executive Director, Dr Michael Wombeogo expressed concern about the several broken pieces of furniture in basic schools in the community even though PARDA supplied furniture to them on a yearly basis. He called on stakeholders, especially management of schools, to take steps to ensure that broken pieces of furniture in various schools were fixed, so that NGOs could channel sources into different areas of need to improve quality education in schools.

The Executive Director described as an eyesore, a heap of broken pieces of furniture packed in one dilapidated block of the Chuchuliga Old Primary School while stakeholders looked unconcerned, and called on the Municipal Assembly and GES to take immediate steps to fix them.

In conclusion, it is important for stakeholders in the Chuchuliga Traditional Area to take responsibility and ensure that educational infrastructure and basic teaching and learning materials are available to pupils to improve their quality of education.
