Dubila Primary School in the Bolgatanga East constituency in the Upper East Region which used to be a death trap has been reconstructed into a modern school infrastructure.

The school was also provided with school uniforms and bags, furniture, and mathematical sets among others.

The gesture was made possible through the influence of the Member of Parliament for Bolgatanga East constituency and Deputy Attorney General, Dominic Ayine who wrote to season three of Airtel Touching Lives TV series for assistance.

The mud school building which was near collapse was therefore pulled down and replaced with the new structure. Hitherto, academic work at the school was seriously affected as both pupils and teachers were discouraged from attending school for fear of their lives.

At a ceremony to hand over the facility to the community, the Legal and Corporate Affairs Director of Airtel Ghana, Hannah Agbozo said education is a cardinal pillar in Airtel corporate social responsibility strategy.

She noted that life touched through education will leave a long lasting impact from the individual level through families and communities to the national level.

She therefore, urged pupils and the entire community of Dubila to cultivate the habit of maintaining the infrastructure for generation yet unborn to also benefit from it.

The Member of Parliament for Bolgatanga East, Dr. Dominic Ayine was grateful to Airtel Ghana for the support.

He remarked that government alone cannot meet the needs of every constituency even though several projects including school blocks, CHPS compounds, feeder roads and others have been provided in the constituency.

The headteacher of the school, Daniel Aniah Asembono, expressing his gratitude for the project was confident it will increase school enrollment.

The school was also provided with a water reservoir.
