Regarding educational projects initiated by development partners, CEPME has worked closely with the Ghana Education Service in the following areas:

  • Evaluated the Safe School project (funded by USAID in 2006)

(The assessment instruments are based on the syllabus designed by GES).
  • Supported reading competitions in metropolitan, municipal and district directorates of education.
