Ewe Association of Georgia provides Bincha Basic School 3 unit classroom structure following Joy News feature. 

Infrastructure deficit at the Bincha Basic School in the Nkwanta South Municipality of the Oti Region has partly been solved following provision of a 3 unit classroom block. 

The Ewe Association of Georgia, USA who financed construction of the classroom block also provided 20 dual desks after learning of the schools’s plight through a Joy News feature. 

The feature highlighted the adverse effect on academic activities due to the lack of teachers, furniture, infrastructure, learning and teaching materials. 

The school had only 3 classrooms available to house 8 classes. The rest 5 classes were housed under thatch structures where teaching and learning activities are disrupted by unfavorable weather conditions. 

Some pupils are compelled to sit on woods, cement blocks and the bare floor as the school suffers furniture deficit.
