Primary Education


The queen mother of Kpando Gadza prioritizes education.

Mama Kodzogasi II, the newly enstooled Queen mother of Kpando Gadza in the Volta Region, has committed to prioritize education as part of the community's long-term development goal.

Every child in the community will be able to read and execute basic arithmetic by Primary Three, and will have gained practical skills in information communication technology (ICT) before graduating junior high school (JHS) under the queen mother's direction.

In an interview with the Daily Graphic after her installation as queen mother of Kpando Gadza, Mama Kodzogasi II, who is also the President of the Accra Supreme Lions Club, a humanitarian organization, outlined her developmental intentions for the village.

Mama Kodzogasi, who described education as the bedrock of development, promised that she would utilize her position to mobilize the necessary resources and engage key authorities on a regular basis to promote access to high-quality education in the area.

"Traditional rulers are thought to be development agents. One of the main things I would focus on if I were to take up this mantle is education.

“We need to provide a strong foundation, and my goal is for every kid to be able to read and do rudimentary arithmetic by the end of Primary Three," she said.

"We have a lot of smart students here," she continued, "and I feel that if we gave them the necessary push and created a conducive learning environment, they would excel."

The Accra Supreme Lions Club is looking to build an ICT center at Kpando Gadza as part of its "high impact projects" for the 2021/2022 service year.

Mama Kodzogasi gave an update on the project, saying that the organization was currently mobilizing resources to get it started.

She urged corporate entities as well as successful Kpando Gadza citizens in the country and overseas to back the project.

Ms Joan Joyce Osai, the new queen mother, took over from Mama Kodzogasi I, who died last year after reigning for 30 years.

She urged for harmony and togetherness among the people to foster the community's development in a speech given at her coronation.

"I'm going to call a meeting with all of the elders to discuss all of the issues that are bothering us, and then we'll attack them one by one. I am convinced that my term would be effective with your help and advice "Mama Kodzogasi II said herself.
