The Global Partnership for Education has been supporting Ghana with US$95.4 million in education grants over the past decade to strengthen the country’s education system, ensuring that all children can go to school and get a quality education.
The latest grant supported 75 of the most deprived districts and helped provide in-service training for teachers across all grades.
It also provided small school grants to allow schools to be more flexible to buy necessary teaching and learning materials or make repairs.
As a result, school attendance of students and teachers has improved significantly, enrollment rates shot up and transition rates from primary to lower-secondary school are increasing.
Scholarships (provided by the UK Department for International Development) have supported 55,000 girls - helping them to stay in school and learn.
