Our Work

World Education's first program in Ghana was implemented between 1974 and 1980. During this period, World Education assisted the Department of Community Development to institutionalize a training program for field staff focusing on innovative approaches to nonformal education and self-help activities. In addition to training rural adults in family-planning, nutrition, income generation, and civic life, the program served as a demonstration model in teaching techniques and materials production.

World Education returned to Ghana in 2001 under the Strengthening HIV/AIDS Partnerships in Education (SHAPE) project to help mitigate the impact of HIV and AIDS on the education sector and to enhance the skills, talents, and resources of local groups through partnerships with public and nongovernmental organizations. Our current programs in Ghana are rooted in two key and overlapping areas: preventing the spread of HIV within the most vulnerable groups and improving girls' access to both formal and nonformal education. In order to successfully implement programs that address these issues, World Education works closely with Ghana's Ministry of Education (MOE)/Ghana Education Service (GES), the Ministry of Health (MOH), and civil society organizations (CSOs).

World Education Ghana is currently delivering programs through four projects:
