A number of schools in the Upper East region have been destroyed due to torrential rains that went on for two days, according to reports available to YEN.com.gh.
Some schools in Bolgatanga, Upper East Region, have had their roofs ripped off after two days of heavy rains.
On Saturday, April 20, 2019 night, there was rainfall for close to five hours. Again on Tuesday, April 23, 2019, there was another heavy downpour.
At the Sokabisi Primary School a 3-unit classroom block serving the upper primary for the school had its roof ripped off.
A dilapidated mud structure which also served as a kindergarten block for the school, had its entire roof blown off by the wind which accompanied the rains.
The same can be said about the Anglican Junior High School also in Bolgatanga.
Final year students of the school had been preparing towards their Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) when the incident occurred.
They see the situation as a big blow because they would have to stay and learn in their individual homes, if the school was not rehabilitated soon.
Meanwhile, Gideon Boateng, a young boy who has to make do with living on the streets, is hopeful that one day, he will become a doctor.
But Boateng's journey to his dream might take a long route than the average Ghanaian.
The 16-year-old has to contend with bullies and other unscrupulous people who would like to take advantage of him on the streets.
