The Ashanti Regional branch of the Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT) has procured a 6.9-acre land at Ampabame in the Ejisu-Juaben Municipality for the construction of a hostel and offices.
According to the Ashanti Regional GNAT Administrative Representative, Mr Alex Debrah, who conducted newsmen round the land site at Ampabame, the project will commence immediately after its 5th Regional Biennial conference scheduled between August 7 and 9 2017.
It will be financed through the grants from its headquarters and also investments made by the regional association.
He said the idea to acquire the land for that viable venture was mooted by its development-oriented Regional Chairperson, Mrs Lucy Amanda Asamoah.
Mr Debrah further disclosed that the completion of the project would definitely boost the morale of the members and also bring more returns which could then be used to improve the welfare and development of its members.
That, he stressed, could serve as a necessary tonic to galvanise them to work assiduously to enhance effective management of teaching and learning in their various schools.
The Regional Secretary of the association, Mr C. K Adum-Ntih, praised members for their outstanding contributions and assured them that their contributions would definitely yield the needed results.
