The Non-Formal Education Division (NFED) in the with the Gomoa West District Assembly, has registered 59 out of school children, between eight and 15 years, to complementary Basic Education programme at Apam.


The Gomoa District Coordinator of the NFED of the Ministry of Education, Mrs. Emelia Turkson Nduom, at a sensitisation programme, at Apam, told fishermen to enroll their children in school in order to better their lot in future.

Good education, she said, would enable the children to play meaningful roles in society in the near future.

Mrs Nduom also stated that the children being registered would not require any special uniforms, sandals, books, and school kits and would not pay school fees or make any financial payments like other public schools.

The District Coordinator told the fishermen that with education, they stood the chance of acquiring more fishing techniques, increasing their knowledge and thereby improving their daily catch and income.

Opanyin Kwesi Botwe, a fisherman, complained that some of the basic needs of children from the area were not being met by parents and as a result, teenage pregnancy was rife among young girls.

He, therefore, called for strict measures to be instituted against such parents.
