The deplorable nature of the classroom blocks of the eighteen (18) schools were so far been identified in the Assin North District.
These schools include Tweapease Bask School, Simpa Kg/Pry, Kushea Ninkyiso Kg/Pry, Subinso African Faith Basic, Asuoankomaso Kg/Pry, Nkranfuom Basic School, Pewodie Kg/Pry School, Kadadwen DA Kg/Pry School Donkorkrom Da Basic School, Ntowkrom DA Basic School, Adukrom

The lives of pupils of the students in these aforementioned schools are in danger as their classroom buildings are on the verge to collapse if soon immediate steps are not taken.
The pupils in these schools are sometimes forced to stay at home when there is a heavy downpour.
These factors, according to the NGO have contributed to ineffective teaching and learning of the pupils in basic, primary, and Junior High Schools within the district.
However under its education improvement program dubbed; "Boanimdea Project," the
NAD has begun the fourth 4th edition of its project to donate furniture, school uniforms, and other learning education materials to the Assin Dwenakye Community school.
Network for Assin Development is a registered independent non-governmental and non-profit organization based in the Assin District of the Central Region.
The Boanimdea Project slated for 20th January 2022, forms part of the NGO’s vision to support deprived communities, especially in the Assin land.
The organization was established in 2017 by a group of educated, dynamic, and like-minded youth, who are interested in the socio-economic development of the Assin District.
The aim is to mobilize resources to help address the developmental challenges confronting the people.
The Executive Director of Founder Mr. Samuel Adobah of the Network disclosed that education has always proven to be a very important tool for development in any country.
In Ghana, however, though the government has taken steps to ensure the realization of quality education, there is still a lot of work to be done as the educational sector still faces several challenges, especially in the rural areas including the Assin land.
According to him, Assin land, over the years, has faced numerous challenges in education and therefore government alone cannot shoulder all the responsibilities. Mr.
Mr. Adobah who doubles as a journalist by profession urged society to take education seriously to help build a better future hence, quality education start from a good foundation.
He stated that much attention should be given to children in deprived communities by stakeholders to achieve SDGs goal 4.
Mr. Adobah mentioned that NAD is gathering data of all schools facing challenges in the three districts of Assin to help effectively mobilize resources to help address them.
The Project Coordinator of the Network, Rev. Stephen Arthur added that the organization, since its inception has distributed over 5,000 educational materials to support some schools in Assin land.
He revealed that building materials were also donated to the Assin Brofoyedur M/A basic last year to renovate some blocks which were destroyed by the rains.
Rev. Stephen Arthur also made a passionate appeal to individuals and benevolent organizations to support the course.
