Nmai Djorn gets modern kindagarten (Saturday, May 22, 2010, Back page)

A GH¢55,000 kindergarten classroom block has been inaugurated at NmaiDjorn in the Adenta municipality.

The project, which was initiated by the Assembly Member for the area,Mrs Gladys G.N. Tetteh, and financed by Trassaco Estate Development Company Limited (TEDCL), has an office, a storeroom, a sleeping bayand a toilet facility.

Speaking at the inauguration ceremony, the Minister of Local Government and Rural Development, Mr Joseph Yieleh Chireh, said education remained the pillar on which the nation could progress,hence the need to provide the needed environment to promote quality teaching and learning.


He urged parents to complement the efforts of teachers not only by way of instilling discipline in their children but also inculcating the spirit of scholarship in them.

He commended the assembly member for the initiative, saying, “Women have a special place in the development of this nation and, therefore, we need to empower more women like you in the decision-making
process.”

Mr Chireh advised the pupils to study hard in order to be successful in life.

The General Manager of the TEDCL, Mr James Frempong, stated that the company was of the conviction that the enhancement of the living conditions of people was the collective responsibility of the government, the private sector and “the resolve of residents to live in a community devoid of litigation and other social vices that impede development”.

He noted that while the government’s Capitation Grant increased enrolment, there was the need to ensure that teaching and learning wasdone in a peaceful and conducive environment.

Mr Frempong said the company saw its social responsibility project as a long-lasting partnership with the community, adding that the TEDCL had other projects for the community, including the fencing of the Nmai Djorn Cemetery to prevent the land from being encroached upon and the construction of another kindergarten at Adjiriganor.

The Adenta Municipal Chief Executive (MCE), Ms Nubyl Kakra Vanlare,called on the chiefs in the municipality to facilitate the development of the area by giving out land when the need arose.

She commended the TEDCL for its contribution towards the development of the area.

The Chairman for the occasion, Nii Okpelor Sowah, who is the Chief of Nmai Djorn, advised chiefs in the area to stop the indiscriminate sale of land in order to preserve it for generations to come.
