The President of the Republic of Ghana His Excellency Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has formerly launched Ghana Accountability for Learning Outcomes Project (GALOP) at the Jubilee House, Accra.
The $218.7m project is jointly funded by the World Bank, Department for International Development (DfID) and Global Partnerships for Education (GPE).
According to the President Statement issued by Rodney Nkrumah-Boateng, Press Secretary to the Minister of Education.
The Ghana Accountability for Learning Outcomes Project (GALOP) project is a 5-year results-based financing project, with disbursement of project funds to the Ministry of Education being contingent on the achievement of pre-determined results.
According to the available records, the Ghana Accountability for Learning Outcomes Project (GALOP) objective is to improve the quality of education in low performing basic education schools and strengthen education sector equity and accountability in Ghana.
The project is targeted at the 10,000 least performing Basic Schools (Kindergarten, Primary and Junior High) across the country as well as all special schools with direct interventions.
GALOP aims to support the Ministry of Education’s Education Strategic Plan (ESP 2018-2030), which has quality, access, equity, sustainability and relevance as its key priority areas in order to provide equitable access to quality basic education to all Ghanaian children.
