There is a high migrant population from the three regions of the north to the Bono regions.
In specificity, the travelling-population to the Bono East is even higher than that of the natives.
Fianso is under the Techiman Municipality along the Techiman-Nkronza highway. It is one of such communities, established by poor subsistence farmers mostly Sisisala, Dagaati and Dagomba tribes from the north.
This community is the host of the Potential Leaders Academy. (POLAC)
The school started some six years ago in the community with the aim of improving access to basic education for children of the subsistence farmers in order to reduce the recycle of poverty and illiteracy among the populations.
As it is now some of the farmers prefer sending their wards to their farms to sending them to school.
By extension, the Sustainable Development Goal four emphasises the need for access to quality education by 2030; this, however, cannot be achieved without deliberately following our poor migrant populations with access to education for their wards–a core belief of the founder and director of POLAC, Mr Wuoda Seidu
Now because thee population is subsistence and could barely understand the need for their wards to have access to quality education, the school is charging low fees and could hardly sustain its operational cost, expand its infrastructure to meet quality learning and teaching environment.
Also, the school needs teaching and learning materials and at least a water facility.
The director then wishes to appeal to organisations with a common interest–in meeting the sustainable development goals on access to education, poverty reduction and gender equity–to come to the aid of the school, it is equally wishing for aid and partnership from individuals with interest in promoting the welfare of children.
Currently, it is operating with a pupils capacity of 230 and a staff capacity of 10.
Now, the primary school is under an uncompleted pavilion while the junior high is under a facility built and roofed with the meagre resource of the founder but only left with the inner fixtures and fittings, a kitchen facility and a set of furniture for the entire school, for now, the pupils carry their furniture from home on a daily basis.
