The Presby Farmers Training - Child Development Programme (PFT-CDP), an NGO, has inaugurated a block of three classrooms at Kpinchila in the East Gonja District to enhance education of the children in that community.

The facility, which will serve as an early childhood development center, comes with ancillaries including a dining room, three-seater toilet, rain water harvesting tank, play equipment and hand washing equipment.

Child Fund Korea, an international child development organization, sponsored the construction of the facility estimated at GHc73, 000.

Reverend Dr Martin Bugri Nabu, Chairman of the Northern Presbytery of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana, who inaugurated the facility on Tuesday described it as a model in the community and called on parents and teachers to do their best to educate their children.

Prior to PFT-CDP's intervention, Kpinchila had a dilapidated kindergarten structure, which was unattractive to the children making them to walk about six kilometers to the nearest school.

Rev Dr Bugri Nabu said with the new facility, parents had no excuse to deny their children quality education and called on them to make good use of the infrastructure to develop the potential of their children.

Mrs Rowena Sugay, Grants Projects Manager of Christian Children's Fund of Canada, an international partner of PFT-CDP, said early child care and development was important in the lives of children since "it is the first contact of children with education and leaves a huge impact on their minds for the rest of their lives".

Mrs Sugay said this informed the intervention and commended the government for developing an early childhood care and development policy, which promotes holistic early childhood development and programme packages that address the physical, mental, social, moral and spiritual needs of the child.

Mr Tanko Iddrisu, Exams Officer of the East Gonja District, assured that teachers would be posted to the facility.

Mr Iddrisu commended PFT-CDP for its continued support for education development in the district.
