The Teachers Fund is a retirement supplement and Solidarity scheme for the Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT) established by a Trust Deed in May 1998. The Fund started with a monthly deduction of GHC0.10 (¢1.000) as basic contributions from the salary of GNAT members through a check-off system.
In October 2019, Madam Margaret Lardi Akparibo one of the pioneers of the Teachers’ Fund went on retirement.
Having contributed to the Fund since its inception, Madam Akparibo went home with a huge sum of money totaling Ninety-Three Thousand, Eight-Hundred and Twenty-Five Ghana Cedis, Thirty-Seven Pesewas (GH¢93,825.37)
In the first of our series “TIME WITH OUR RETIREES”, Sena Atoklo recently visited Madam Margaret Akparibo in her home at Bolgatanga in the Upper East Region to interact with her about her days with the Fund.
