Headmistress of Ghanian primary school
Georgina Donkor, headmistress of the Nsata Subriso community’s primary school in Ghana, explains what a difference new desks made to her community.
“Before ICI provided our school with desks, children were stacked on their old benches by four or five. Sometimes they would even fall from their seats because it was so tight. Since we have the new desks, the school attendance has increased and the pupils can focus better. The teachers can also move through the classroom and go from child to child. In the future, we would like to construct an additional classroom, install a school library and also provide laptops, so that the children can learn about computer sciences.”
