Publication Date: 06/12/2016
CARE International Ghana is among the group of implementing partners delivering an annual cycle of the Complementary Basic Education (CBE) Program in Ghana which is providing to a pre-determined number of out-of-school children aged 8-14 years with access to an accelerated numeracy and literacy program in their mother tongue and targeted to their needs, and to thereby enable them to acquire the basic knowledge and skills required for admission to formal education. Over the past two years, CARE delivered two cycles of the CBE program in collaboration with the District Assembly and the Education Directorate to serve more than the expected 11000 OOSC. CARE reached out to 11771 out of school of children (OOSC) in over 200 communities within Sekyere Afram Plains District in Ashanti Region, and West Mamprusi and East Mamprusi Districts in the Northern Region of Ghana. The results show that at least 90% of the above OOSC were able to complete the CBE program and also transition into the formal school in September 2015 and 2016.
