The District Director of Education for the Talensi-Nabdam District in the Upper East Region, Mr Francis Ayaba, at the weekend said, the Gbeogo School for the Deaf in Tongo near Bolgatanga needs more support and attention. He made the appeal when, a Dutch Non-Governmental Organization, "Meet Africa", donated a computer and it's accessories and mosquito nets to the School. "If a person cannot hear, speak, or see does not mean he or she should not be taken care of. They could contribute significantly to national development if well cared for," the District Director said. He explained that there were many of such people who had climbed high on the educational ladder and were contributing positively to the development of the country. Mr Ayaba appealed to NGOs and other Philanthropists to come to the aid of the School by providing educational materials and to help build more dormitories, which were the basic needs of the students and pupils. The Country Director of "Meet Africa", Madam Namawu Ibrahim explained that people with disability have high potentials, but were sometimes neglected by society. She said "Meet Africa" was moved by the plight of the Students and decided to give its "widow's mite" to the School. The Headmaster of the School, Mr Francis Andiiba thanked the NGO for the donation and promised to take good care of the gifts.
