The only Technical School for the Deaf in Ghana risk losing their current place of study if a 14,000 Ghana cedis rent fees are not settled by close of this week.
JOY News’ Yaa Fosua Gyamfi found out the rent for the Senior High Technical School for the Deaf expired last Friday.
The property and land owners of the school are demanding that the authorities pay all monies owed them or they will forcibly be ejected from the buildings that house both school’s administration work and classrooms.
The school authorities have been previously appealing to the Akuapem Chiefs to plead their case before the landowners, but after many of such interventions the Chiefs have given up.
The 38 years old school is under government subvention but funds to run the facility are hard to come by despite several petitions by the acting headmaster, Nathan Pecku.
With no bus, the physically challenged walk two kilometers from school to their classroom and two kilometers return journey.
The Senior High School for the Deaf has about 200 students with some coming from neighboring country Togo.
