The Kwaebibrem district education directorate has launched an information communication technology (ICT) centre at Kade. The centre was funded by the Ghana Investment Fund for Electronic Communication (GIFEC).
Inaugurating the centre, the District Director of Education, Mr Godwin Amoako, said the directorate was happy with the initiative and expressed optimism that the facility would equip teachers to teach the subject efficiently.
He, however, said looking at the number of schools in the district, more computers would be needed and, therefore, appealed to non-governmental organisations, the assembly and all stakeholders to come to the district directorate’s aid.

The District Chief Executive, Mr Reginald Emmanuel Osae Aboagye, advised children to use the Internet positively for learning and avoid the negative use of the facility to promote immorality.
He added that as part of the government’s better Ghana agenda on education, a number of schools under trees had been eliminated, in addition to the provision of free school uniforms, free exercise books and school feeding.
He said the government would do everything possible to improve upon education in the district and urged the teachers to adopt a culture of maintenance in order to prolong the centre’s lifespan.
The Communication Manager of GIFEC, Mr Badu Andor, said the aim of the organisation was to assist schools and organisations to have access to ICT, adding that GIFEC had helped a lot of institutions such as the Prisons Service, the Ghana Police Service and the Ghana National Fire Service, as well as the Ghana Armed Forces in that respect and also offered training to some individuals and other organisation free of charge.
