CBE programme review meeting

The West Mamprusi District (WMD) Education Oversight Committee (DEOC) has resolved to supply school uniforms and writing materials to beneficiaries of the Complementary Basic Education (CBE) programme in the district to enhance their enrolment into formal schools.

The DEOC has also planned to facilitate the construction of more educational infrastructure to avoid overcrowding in classrooms as well as deploy teachers to adequately man the classrooms to ensure improved academic work.

Review meeting

The decision was arrived during a district review meeting on the implementation of the CBE programme in the WMD, organised by CARE International in Ghana at Walewale, the district capital.

The meeting was to enable participants, who included DEOC members, assembly members, and non-governmental organisations (NGOs), to appreciate the successes and challenges of the CBE in the district and outline practical actions to support the CBE programme.

CBE programme

The CBE programme provides out-of-school children, who are beyond school starting age (eight to 14), the opportunity to acquire basic literacy and numeracy skills within a period of nine months in their mother tongues to facilitate their enrolment into the formal school system.

Since 2014, CARE International in Ghana with funding from United Kingdom (UK) Agency for International Development (UKaid) and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) has been implementing the CBE programme in the WMD recording high numbers of learners some of whom failed to remain at the formal schools after graduation from the CBE programme.

Poverty, crowded classrooms and walking long distances to reach nearest formal schools have been identified as some of the factors accounting for poor transition and retention of CBE leaners in the formal schools.

A total of 5,348 out-of-school children have so far been enrolled for the CBE programme in the WMD since 2014.

The West Mamprusi District Deputy Director of Education, Mr Maxwell Atibire, said the directorate would ensure the provision of school uniforms to CBE learners upon their admission to formal schools to encourage them to remain in school.

Mr Atibire said his outfit would further ensure effective supervision of schools to improve academic exercise while sensitising parents to the CBE programme to help retain CBE graduates in the formal schools.

The Project Manager in charge of CBE at CARE International in Ghana, Mr George Appiah, said the organisation would continue to work with stakeholders in education in the WMD to provide the necessary support to ensure the success of the CBE in the district.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

West Mamprusi Assembly elects a new presiding member

The West Mamprusi District Assembly has elected a new presiding member after a long wait. This follows the endorsement of Hon. Lariba Abudu by assembly members after a contest between her and Hon. Yidana Peter left the sit vacant. This is the sixth time members of the assembly had to vote in getting a chairperson for assembly’s proceedings. Hon. Lariba Abudu is the first female to serve in the office of the presiding membership for the West Mamprusi District.

Hon. Lariba who in earlier meetings failed to get the required votes to be confirmed as the presiding officer was unanimously endorsed by her colleagues to becoming the first female presiding member of the assembly after Hon. Yidana Peter stepped down from the race.

The West Mamprusi District Assembly is the only district in the Northern Region without a presiding member to facilitate the meeting of the assembly. This has made the assembly unable to form various working committees to facilitate development in the area since the election of Assembly members in last year’s nationwide district assembly elections.

Addressing members of the Assembly Hon. Lariba Abudu appealed to members to put the interest of the Assembly first. She said the inability of the assembly to elect a presiding member was preventing the assembly from taking major decisions for the facilitation of development in the District.

Hon. Lariba also pledged to conduct herself in line with the laid down rules of the Assembly in other for the house to take best decision that would bring change to the inhabitants of the District.
