The Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT), in collaboration with the Canadian Teachers Federation (CTF), has donated a quantity of educational materials to two basic schools at Kaleo in the Nadowli-Kaleo District of the Upper West Region.
The items, worth almost GH¢5,000, including textbooks, exercise books, chalk, footballs, pens and pencils, were donated to the Kaleo District Assembly and Kaleo Roman Catholic Primary schools.
A third school in the Ashanti Region also benefited from a similar donation.
Over the past 56 years, GNAT and CTF make such donations to three selected basic schools in the country, every year.
Presenting the items, the Manager of GNAT Resource Centre, Mr Ernest Asamoah, said the donation was made to the two schools in Kaleo in remembrance of the former GNAT Officer in charge of Administration and Labour Relations, the late Mr Charles Kala, who hailed from the area.
Receiving the items, the Nadowli-Kaleo District Director of Education, Mrs Mary Assumpta Mwinsigteng, expressed her profound gratitude to the donors and said the teaching and learning materials would be put to good use.
