President Nana Akuffo Addo once said, Teaching is a sacrificial job to the Nation and hence no Teacher in the World becomes a millionaire out of teaching, to become a millionaire you must do other things.

There are things government can also do to better the life of teachers, these will include affordable housing scheme for teachers, better allowances, Reduced  hours Spent in School by recruiting more Teachers.

The challenge of a decent home for Ghanaian Teachers is known by all yet nothing seems to be done about it.

On 4th January 2022,President Akufo-Addo  announced that plans are far advanced by his government for the construction of 10,000 affordable houses for teachers in the country within the next two years.

According to him, his administration is aware of the challenges that teachers faced, with regards to owning their own houses; challenges which he said this positive project is intended to address for teachers and their families.

The housing project, he said, would be built across the country, and it would be given out as mortgage or rent for teachers to enable them to have decent homes to live in.

“Within the next two years, proposed 10,000 housing units, on affordable terms, would be developed for teachers. This is a tip of the iceberg but it is a good beginning,” the President said, attracting wild applause.

President Akufo-Addo was delivering this address during the 6th Quadrennial of the Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT) which was held in Kumasi.

The President also said his administration is working out a subsidised loan programme, which would give teachers the golden opportunity to own homes and houses at any location of the country in order to better their lives.

Continuing, the President disclosed that the National Service Scheme and Ministry of Education as well as the Ministry of Works and Housing and the various teachers’ unions are in talks over this upcoming programme.

According to him, his administration cherished the efforts and sacrifices of teachers in the training of students in the country, therefore they (government) would do their utmost best to transform the living conditions of teachers. Credit dailyguidenetwork.com

It’s an excellent initiative which is gonna go a long way to completely change the life of the teacher. It will give the teacher a physical, psychological, and mental stability to focus on his or her work which will yield a positive work out put and bring about a positive impact on education in Ghana. The teacher wouldn’t be in class teaching and be thinking of his or rent fee or the trouble of some House owners. The teacher will definitely have a place to call his or her own. God richly bless and strengthen you guys for the good work you’ve done and doing and will do.💪💪🙏
