(Ecofin Agency) - The education sector in Ghana will receive $150 million in aid from the World Bank, the institution announced last week.
The financing is part of the Ghana Accountability for Learning Outcomes Project (GALOP) which aims to support teaching and learning through modern in-service teacher training, and provision of learning materials. It targets over 2.3 million children including 1.2 million girls, as well as over 70,000 teachers, head teachers, circuit supervisors, and national, regional and district education officers.
“The project focuses on underserved areas and on improving the quality of education for increased human capital and supports the World Bank’s twin goals of ending poverty and promoting shared prosperity,” said Pierre Laporte, World Bank Country Director for Ghana.
He said the operation “directly aligns with the Government’s Strategy and with the World Bank’s Africa Strategy of improving inclusive and equitable access to quality education at all levels.”
