The Agona East District Assembly has received a shipment of 250 dual desks, which will be distributed to schools to improve the effectiveness of teaching and learning in the district.
Mrs Paintsil emphasized the importance of providing educational infrastructure to enhance the quality of education. She expressed the Assembly's commitment to supporting the education directorate in its efforts to function effectively.
The Assembly has undertaken various projects in the district to promote quality education. Notable completed projects include a 3-unit classroom block for Tawora Basic School, a 12-seater W/C toilet facility for Nsaba SHS, and the distribution of sanitary pads to girls in 10 schools across the district. Additionally, laptop computers were provided to the Agona East Education Directorate to facilitate their work.
Mrs Paintsil also highlighted the efforts of the Environmental Health and Sanitation department of the Assembly in screening and sensitizing food vendors to prevent the spread of communicable diseases. She urged the Assembly members to encourage food vendors in their communities to undergo voluntary screening to ensure the provision of wholesome food to the public.
In collaboration with the Environmental Health Department, Zoomlion, and the Regional Coordinating Council, the Assembly has initiated a monthly clean-up exercise, starting in Agona Nsaba, the district capital. Mrs Paintsil stated that this exercise would continue on a monthly basis and urged the Assembly members to support the team when it reaches their respective electoral areas.
Furthermore, the DCE mentioned an ongoing house-to-house environmental health inspection known as “Samansama.” This initiative aims to improve sanitary conditions, ensure the supply of clean water, and promote healthy practices in households throughout the district.
