NORSAAC’s Education Program is dedicated to improving the structure and attainability of education in Ghana’s Northern Sector. It targets three main areas; leadership, teaching methods, and social barriers to education; while also seeking to enhance the use of participatory training methods.
In alliance with NORSAACS beliefs, the programme area encourages the empowerment of young women and addresses the important issue of gender disparity at all levels of education. This disparity comes as a result of teacher and community beliefs favoring male education over female education.
One-way NORSAAC is working to reduce these challenges is through strengthening the Ghana Education Service (GES).
· Increased access to empowering, quality, basic education for children of school going age
· Increased educational attainment for girls
· Enhanced school governance and management
As a newly created programme, it is still in its beginning phases. It Currently assists educational components of the 3 other programme areas. Please check back for more information on upcoming projects and initiatives.
