The activity is USAID’s first foray into Ghana’s private school sector and is designed to expand access to 213 select low-cost private schools in northern Ghana.

“A quality education should not depend on where you live.  We want every child to have access to quality education. The $14 million activity we are launching today will support low-cost private schools that serve rural and disadvantaged communities. 

“The activity will support those schools to improve education access, quality, and learning outcomes for students, and increase private sector investments in northern Ghana,” USAID Deputy Mission Director Lang said.
