The United State Agency for International Development (USAID) is supporting the Ghanaian Government with $ 19,671,000 to improve the quality and proper management of education in the country.


The fund is expected to cater for some educational needs in 38 deprived districts in all the 10 regions of Ghana.

It would include the construction of 15 district education offices, 49 junior high school (JHS) blocks, 50 kindergarten school blocks and 45 toilet facilities.

The projects, when completed, would reduce overcrowding, improve on sanitation and create conducive environment for teaching and learning.

Dr Felix Amoako, Director in charge of Funds, Procurement and Management Unit (FPMU) at the Ministry of Education, disclosed this when he handed over two JHS blocks, two kindergarten blocks and a toilet to the Garu-Tempane District in the Upper East Region.

The move was to bridge the infrastructural gap between the rural and the urban areas in the country in order to achieve uniform educational development.

USAID had constructed 15 educational offices in 38 districts across the country to improve on education.
