The Member of Parliament for the Keta Constituency, Hon. Richard Quashigah has built new classroom block for Atsime community.

The four unit block with an ICT centre comes as additional block to reduce the infrastructural deficit faced by the school.

It was in fulfillment of his promise to the community to help provide comfortable place for the students to study.

At the commissioning ceremony, Mr. Richard Quashigah commended the contractor who doubles as the Chairman of the Atiavi Development Association, Mr. Gershon Pele Yakawonya for his contribution towards successful completion of the project.

According to him, though the initial project was for three unit block, it was through the benevolence of Mr. Yakawonya that he added additional classroom to be used as the ICT centre.

Mr. Quashigah said he was aware there was need for more classroom blocks but added that what has been accomplished was a good beginning.

The MP who also commissioned 10-seater toilet facility built by the people through the Atiavi Development Association lauded the self-help spirit of the people.

He said the facility which is aimed at ending open defecation in the area is in the right direction and will help keep the community away from preventable diseases like cholera.

He noted that accelerated development cannot be realized if communities do not take pragmatic steps to address some of the challenges facing them.

The MP also stated that problems confronting the area are not new but will take some time to address but he will not give up on them but keep pushing and lobbying for them to be addressed.
