The Member of Parliament for North Tongu Constituency, Honourable Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, has initiated voluntary teaching for students across affected camps in his constituency.
The North Tongu MP’s Special Teaching and Learning initiative for students in all 21 displaced camps was initiated in collaboration with the National Union of Tongu Students and Associates (NUTSA), a student union in the three Tongu Districts (North, South, and Central).
Volunteer teachers, university, and College of Education students have been mobilized to help the amazing children make up for lost academic time and get back on track with their peers across the country.
Teaching and learning started on Monday, 23rd October 2023, across the camps each day (Monday to Friday) at exactly 8 am.
A 5-member committee was formed and led by Agboni Nicholas Kelvin to coordinate the North Tongu MP’s Special Teaching in the area.
The Member of Parliament, who has been touring the camps and spending time with volunteer teachers and amazing pupils across the 21 displaced camps, is pleased with the progress of teaching.
He noted that resettlement must be urgently addressed so that children can have their classrooms back.
“God bless our dynamic 86 volunteer teachers. We are in this together, rising together. We shall make up for lost academic time,” Okudzeto Ablakwa said.
