Ms. Helen Awurusah, Head of the GNAT Gender Desk, said it had led to significant improvement of the quality of teaching and learning as deprived schools, which hitherto recorded zero pass in the Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE), were now scoring good grades.

She was speaking at the closing ceremony of a three-day GNAT/CTF Gender Nkabom Project workshop in Koforidua.

The project aims at mobilizing local resources to create the right environment for effective academic work in schools in deprived communities.

Ms. Awurusah indicated that teachers, who had benefitted from the project in the Upper East and Brong-Ahafo Regions were leading the front the effort to get new classroom structures built for the communities.

Some of them in the deprived schools had also won scholarship to pursue for further studies.

Ms. Abena Gyamera, First National Trustee of GNAT, called on the participants to share their experience with their other colleagues.

The participants were selected from six deprived schools in the Akuapim North, Suhum, Ayensuano and Yilo Krobo Districts.
