Teachers at Bomigo Basic School in the Keta Municipality of the Volta Region, have resorted to relying on keyboards made of clay to effectively teach students about computers.
The municipality is without electricity yet schools have been supplied black and white computers with accessories.
Joy News correspondent, Ivy Setordzi, who filed the initial report, had visited the area stated that, Thomas Ahiabor uses his single laptop to lead the teaching of ICT lessons.
The pupils have to envision what computers are, by relying on computer accessories such as keyboard moulded out of clay.
A frustrated Mr. Ahiabor believes relying on clay-moulded computer accessories, though ill-advised, is the most innovative thing they could do.
They are making use of local resources, in this case, the large deposits of clay they have.
"The situation is very bad and we have no choice than to take advantage of the clay deposits to would the computers", the teacher said.
Sadly, there are no materials for the ICT program in the school, making the situation even worse and very difficult.
Member of Parliament for the area, Kofi Humado, however, told the reporter although he has some computers available to be delivered to the school the unavailability of electricity, means it will be of no use to the pupils.
"If the bridge can be constructed then the rural electrification program can also go through then the road can also follow", Mr. Humado appealed.
