“Dagbamate community is very devoted to providing quality education to its children and in this regard, much effort is needed in every sector to make this a reality,” he stated. 

He disclosed that there was a need to see both students and teachers to provide a good and conducive teaching and learning environment. 

The community was poised to construct a canteen and two additional teachers’ bungalows for the school. 

Ngorgbea Davor stated that the community was currently engaged in other infrastructural projects, which included an 11-seater toilet and fence wall for the Basic school.  

“Construction of Dagbamate Community Vocational Training Centre for girls in fashion design and hairdressing were also underway to mitigate unemployment among the youth in the area and all these projects are funded by Afetorku shrine.” 

Mr Davor appealed to the government, philanthropists, individuals, and other stakeholders to assist them with the necessary equipment needed to run the facility.  

He charged the government to as a matter of urgency, help construct Akatsi through Dagbamate to Avenorpeme roads which began about seven years ago but stalled.
