USAID’s Economic Growth Program partners with the Government of Ghana and the Ghanaian private sector and civil society to realize sustainable and broadly shared economic growth across the Nation.

Ghana has one of the fastest growing economies in the world1; however, Ghana’s long-term economic growth is challenged by an expensive supply of power, low access to credit, high borrowing costs, low agricultural productivity, a business climate that restricts private sector growth, and constraints in regional trade.

USAID’s Education Program increases the number of Ghanaian children who are able to read with fluency and comprehension in the early grades of primary school.

According to the 2015 Early Grade Reading Assessment, only two percent of grade 2 students in Ghana are able to read at grade level. To address this challenge, USAID supports teacher training, rigorous student assessment, and the provision of quality textbooks and learning materials. USAID assists the Government of Ghana to strengthen the delivery of education services directly related to improving reading achievement.
