Mampong School for the Deaf appeals for support

The headmaster of the Mampong Demonstration School for the Deaf, Mr Solomon Busty Kwashie, has called for assistance to help revive the once vibrant school’s poultry farm that served as the school’s only source of Internally Generated Fund(IGF) for and supporting their activities.

Speaking to the Ghana News Agency(GNA) , he said, the poultry farm had existed for the past 20 years and through the revenue generated , the school was able to build four staff bungalows.

However, in the past six years, the farm has been at the verge of collapse.

Mr Kwashie explained that when revamped the poultry project would supplement the protein intake of the students and also help to train them in poultry farming as their future vocation.

He indicated that said setting up the students in viable ventures on graduation was one of the major challenges because after completion of school, the students needed to establish their own businesses to utilize the skills they had acquired in the school.

Mr Kwashie, therefore, appealed to organizations and philanthropists to go to the aid of the school and also appealed for sewing machines, hair dryers and other needed equipment to support vocational training in the school .

He also appealed for the completion of an ongoing dormitory block to help ease the congestion at the existing dormitories and provide the opportunity for more students to be enrolled.
