Kobby Kyei Throws Light On The Plight Of Oduman Asuaba M/A Basic School

Better education they say is a right not a privilege but the current condition of children at Oduman Asuaba near Obom in the Ga south municipality, Greater Accra region is a direct opposite of this saying.

It’s so disheartening to see a basic school not in a remote area but in the same region that has the capital city of the country in such a state. In this school, children have to sit or sleep on the floor read or write — no tables and chairs for these students which does not affect only their academics but also their health.

As children in some parts of the world are learning and preparing themselves in better environments for a brighter future, children in the 67 year old country are lacking basic amenities and other items to ensure better education.

Headmaster of the school,Emil Osei is calling on non governmental organizations, corporate bodies and individuals to come to their aid to support the children.

Parents of these innocent children also told the team the stress they go through to have them in this school. Check the video below
