We Just Don't Sit In Accra, We Go To Where The Need Is & We Help - Afia Pokuaa

Michael Owusu Afriyie, popularly known as Teacher Kwadwo has taken upon himself to go into remote areas where basic schools have challenges with infrastructure and show how Ghana Education Service (GES) is not supporting basic schools in Ghana. Some rural basic schools do not have classrooms; they learn under trees, others do not have enough teachers. Some pupils also walk a long distance before they can get access to education.

The Ghanaian sensational journalist of UTV, Afia Pokuaa aka Vim Lady has also joined this campaign with the little assistant she can offer. Reports indicate that the Northern Regions have more these schools under trees than any region in Ghana. Apart from learning under trees, some of these school pupils are compelled to bring their own chairs because the schools do not have desks. Others used packed blocks as desks.

In view of this, Vim Foundation has stepped into some of these issues and provide desks for some of these schools in the Northern and Savannah Regions under trees. According to her, where she is standing now is a town called Yoriyire in the Sawla Tuna Kalba District.

There are some Ghanaians who always lament about the poor nature of these schools but are not doing the little that they can to help. Always descending on the government for poor infrastructure in basic schools but doing nothing to help.

As for Vim Lady, she said "I'm just doing my bit. You can do the same from your hometown or village near you".
