The project aims to achieve the following objectives: 

  1. Increasing awareness and involvement of 270 local civil society members and 1,250 parents from 25 districts in the management of education resources in Northern Ghana
  2. The promotion of accountability and responsiveness of 250 district Ghana Education Service (GES) managers in education resources management
  3. The promotion of adherence to effective mechanisms for channelling education resources from central government to decentralized offices in Northern Ghana

The project will be implemented over 18 months from June 2016 to December 2017, covering 5 districts and 40 schools (8 schools per district) in the Upper East Region.
