Greater Accra, Ghana – On 24 February, 2015, USAID, in collaboration with key regional partners, kicked off a series of roundtable discussions on generating sustainable gains in child literacy and numeracy nationwide.  To further this goal, regional actors, including, Education Offices, Coordinating Councils, Ghana Education Service national representatives and USAID’s Ghana Mission Education team will gather for introductory Partnership for Education meetings through March 31, 2015.  USAID’s Partnership for Education project represents an investment in Ghanaian education by the American people of approximately $190 million over the next five years.

National representatives from the Ghana Education Service and the USAID Education team will travel to the country’s 10 regional capitals to introduce the project.  They will identify regional support for activities and emphasize the critical role of regional actors in the periodic review and assessment of milestones.

One of Ghana’s most paramount constraints to economic growth is unreliable and inadequate supply of electric power, with only 2,450 MW of installed generation capacity to serve a population of 25 million. The Government of Ghana (GOG) has committed to increase the total installed power generation capacity to 5,000 MW by 2016, including 10 percent from renewable sources. As part of this effort, independent power producers have created 546 mega-watts (MW) of generation capacity, and another private producer is nearing financial close and will ultimately produce 348 MW.
