The Volta River Authority Resettlement Secretariat is building accommodation for teachers in communities that were resettled during the construction of the Volta Lake.
To this end, the secretariat has handed a six-unit bungalow to teachers in Wusuta in the North Dayi District in the Volta Region, one of the communities which were relocated during the construction of the dam.
The project, which was funded by the Volta River Authority Resettlement Trust Fund (VRA RTF), would make teaching and learning easy for both teachers and students in the community according to Mr. Tony Anthony Agblevor, Technical Officer of VRA RTF.
He said to maintain the facility, the beneficiaries were supposed to pay a rent of GH₡20 a month.
He assured that VRA RTF would continue to support communities that were resettled during the construction of the Dam.
“The Trust Fund Secretariat is ready and committed to respond to the cries of the re-settlers as several projects are currently ongoing in most of the resettlement communities in the country,” he added.
On his part, Mr. Geshon Konglo, the Headmaster of the Wusuta Community School said the frequent exit of teachers posted to the community due to poor accommodation in the area would soon be a thing of the past.
