Video: The price of education and the sad end of Kwadwo Njorfuni

Education is a fundamental human right, and according to the 1992 Constitution of Ghana, every child of school going age is entitled to free and accessible basic education.

But this right is an illusion for most children in rural areas in Ghana. Apart from mass failures recorded due to challenges such as inadequate and sometimes lack of teachers and learning materials, some rural children have to pay the ultimate price in their quest for education.

In the following report, Manasseh Azure Awuni takes us through the life of one of such children, eleven year old Kwadwo Njorfuni in Banda in the Krachi Nchumuru District of the Volta Region.

This story was earlier telecast by Joy News channel on MultiTV
