Reconstruction of the primary school
The village of Brodi is located in the Tain District in the Brong Ahafo Region of Ghana. It is about 35 kilometers from Nsawkaw, the district’s capital, and the population of Brodi is about 13,000 people. The main activity is agriculture. Brodi has both public and private schools with nursery schools, primary schools, junior high and senior high schools. The total number of pupils and students is about 2,300.
The Roman Catholic primary school in Brodi, which was supported by Madamfo Ghana with school equipment and throughout the construction of the nursery school, was badly damaged by heavy rainfall. The school block, which was built 25 years ago by members of the Roman Catholic Church of Brodi, collapsed on 14 June 2019 due to heavy rain and storms.
More than 125 school children are now without a school building. Teaching and learning takes place under trees. The main aim of the project is to rebuild and reconstruct the three classrooms for the school and a teacher’s office.
The land on which the school block will be built belongs to the school and is therefore free of unforeseen land disputes. Once the project is completed, the school will be owned by the community, the district school council and the district assembly.
In addition to that, the community is ready and willing to provide any type of labour, especially unskilled labour, at any level of the project when needed.
Thanks to the generous donation of druckerpatronen.de the reconstruction of the school could be started in december 2019!
