Bechemboi, a farming community in the Sissala East District, is benefiting from the construction of a Two-bedroom semi-detached Teachers’ Quarter under the Integrated Rural Development Project (IRDP) which is being implemented by the Social investment Fund. The construction of the facility had raised the moral of the teachers in the local community school who are saddle with acute accommodation challenges. This was revealed by Mr. Amidu Tuko, the PTA Chairman, during a monitoring visit to the community on October 20, 2016 by the SIF and the District Chief Executive and staff of Sissala West District Assembly.
In a meeting with the community, Ms Cynthia Serwaah, a teacher, expressed the sincere gratitude of the teachers of the community for the construction of the quarters and appealed to the SIF to expand the facility to accommodate more teachers. The District Chief Executive, Hon. Johnson Saborh, disclosed that the District Assembly intends to build 12-unit compound houses to accommodate teachers in the near future. He further revealed that the District Assembly had paid an amount of GHC 689,000.00 as counterpart fund obligation for all the IRDP sub-projects in the district. He asked the community to take the sub-project as their own and make good use of it when completed.
