Through its School Infrastructure Development Project, the Pentecost Social Services (PENTSOS) has constructed a 3-Unit Classroom block for the Pentecost School Zongo Macheri located in the Krachi-Nchumburu District of Ghana and in the Kete-Krachi Area of the Church of Pentecost. The construction of the new classroom block received support from the Kete-Krachi Area and the Zongo Macheri District of the Church.
The Pentecost School, Zongo Macheri, was established in 1998 and currently has 283 pupils from KG to JHS level. The School has had challenges in the past, and especially during the rainy seaso; it was difficult for teachers and students to have classes. The JHS was using an old, dilapidated pavilion structure as a classroom. The primary School has been absorbed by the Government, while the Church privately manages the JHS.
The new 3-Unit classroom block, which commenced in 2020, was constructed at the cost of GHS69,533.00 (The Headquarters through PENTSOS provided GHS50,000 funding for the project while the Kete Krachi Area and the Zongo Macheri District supported with GHS19,533).
The new 3-Unit classroom block will improve access for children in the Zongo Macheri community and nearby villages and the 283 pupils in the School. The project will, among other things, also contribute to increased enrolment in the School.
The Area Head, Aps. Joseph Danzerl and assisted by the Chief of Zongo Macheri, Nana Kofi Agyagne II, commissioned the newly constructed classroom block on 10th October, 2022. At the commissioning ceremony were Ministers in the Kete Krachi Area of the Church.
At the commissioning ceremony, the Area Head said that the construction of the new classroom block was consistent with the vision of the Church of Pentecost, Vision 2023, “Possessing the Nations.” He commended the Chairman, Aps. Eric Nyamekye, the General Secretary, Aps. Alexander Nana Yaw Kumi-Larbi, the IMD, Aps. Emmanuel Agyemang Bekoe and the PENTSOS Director, Elder Richard Amaning, for their support of the School. He acknowledged the support of all past Ministers of the Church in the Area and Zongo Macheri District. The Area Head, again, commended the Government’s support for the School and the relentless effort of the Head of the School, Teaching Staff, Parents like Elder Asamoah and Mr. Kwayaja, the past P.T.A Chairmen and Mr. Bawah, and others, for continuing to offer help to the School during the crises.
