1 Mins read

The Kalvio Basic School in the Kasena-Nankana West District of the Upper East region has received 30 more galvanized dual desks in addition to the 63 it received last November, following a collaboration between a community-based organization known as ‘1 Cedi 4 Change’, Impact Next Gen and Joy FM.

Hitherto, the school which is located in one of the most deprived communities in the Upper East Region, had no furniture and so, the pupils – numbering over 250 – were lying on the bare classroom floors or sitting on stones for lessons.

A campaign dubbed; the Sit a Child Project, was started by ‘1 Cedi 4 Change’, Impact Generation and Joy FM, to get furniture for the Kavio Basic School.
