Junior high schools in the Bekwai Constituency in the Ashanti Region have benefited from computer sets distributed by the Member of Parliament for the area, Joseph Osei-Owusu.

The sixty computer sets were his personal contributions towards the development and study of information communication technology (ICT) among school children to bridge the information and skill gap between those in his constituency and those from urban centres.

Additionally, Mr. Osei-Owusu also provided wireless internet connectivity to all 12-computers at the Bekwai Municipal Library so that access to the World Wide Web for information will be possible.

Other supports provided by the Member of Parliament included distribution of 200 sets of tables and chairs to kindergartens across the constituency. Mr. Osei said there is a need to access to early childhood development in the district with the aim of helping deal with the falling standard of education in the area.

More so, 20 teachers living far away from their schools have also received bicycles from the MP to facilitate their transportation to and from school. This is to keep them at post to spend quality time with the students without worrying about transportation.

Transportation difficulties usually compelled teachers to either absent themselves from school or leave early at any opportunity depriving the students huge instructional hours.
