The President of the Republic, Nana Akufo-Addo will formally on Thursday, June 18, 2020, launch the $218.7m education project dubbed Ghana Accountability for Learning Outcomes Project (GALOP) at the Jubilee House, Accra.
The Ghana Accountability for Learning Outcomes Project (GALOP) estimated to be $218.7m is jointly funded by the International Development (DM) and Global Partnerships for Education (GPE).
GALOP is a 5 -year results-based financing project, with the disbursement of project funds to the Ministry of Education being contingent on the achievement of pre-determined results.
The prime objectives of GALOP are to enhance 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 least 10,000 least performing Basic Schools (Kindergarten, Primary, and Junior High) throughout the country as well as all special schools with direct interventions.
It aims to support the Education Ministry’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.
