World Bank Approves $150 Million Fund to Improve Ghana’s Education System

Thursday, November 7, 2019

The World Bank’s Board of Directors has recently approved a $150 million fund for the Ghana Accountability for Learning Outcomes Project (GALOP). The fund is aimed at improving the quality of education for more than two million children in low performing basic education schools.

“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, the World Bank Country Director for Ghana.

He added that the operation directly aligns with both the Ghanian Government’s Strategy and the World Bank’s Africa Strategy of improving inclusive and equitable access to quality education at all levels.
