Link Community Development - District Improvement Project
LCD is working in partnership with the Ghanaian Education Service to support their 'Whole School Development Project'. LCD is based in the Upper East Region's department office in Bolgatanga. The project will work with each of the 6 districts in the Upper East Region, and will focus on 20 primary schools in each district. The first district to become involved was Kassena-Nankani.
The project is helping schools plan their own development, attract stronger support from their communities and receive a better service from their district departments. At the same time, the project is focusing on district level planning and delivery.
In addition, LCD is hoping to twin each of the 120 primary schools in the project with a UK school. This is facilitated through LCD's sister organisation in the UK - Link Africa.
The project builds on Link's school development and district change work in South Africa, where Link has been working in educational development for 10 years. This project is an excellent opportunity for South-South learning, and exchanges between Ghanaian and South African departments of education are being organised.
