A scheme to assist teachers and health workers in rural areas to acquire motorcycles as a means of transport has been launched in the Volta region.

The Better Ghana Motorcycle programme, is targeting 30,000 rural teachers and health workers nationwide, to purchase and pay for the motorbikes on monthly installation basis, without interest charges.

Mr. Gershon Adeklo, Coordinator of the programme said the scheme is a private initiative to help tackle the transportation challenges of public servants in rural Ghana.

According to him, “teachers and health workers, especially those in rural areas have peculiar challenges with transportation, that’s why we can put with this motorcycle programme, so that they have the peace of mind to deliver services to their communities.”

The programme which is being piloted in the Volta region, will be deployed nationwide in the coming weeks, Mr. Adeklo noted.
