Ghana Transition and Persistance Final Narrative Report

The Ghana TAP Final Report summarizes the activities and impact of the project over the past three years, covering the period from July 1, 2010 to November 30, 2013. It provides details on the project’s accomplishments and challenges, and actions taken to address those challenges. Project expenditures totaled $9,494,239.97. Plan submitted a request for a no-cost extension on July 22, 2013. USAID granted the no-cost extension on August 26, 2013, extending TAP’s completion date to November 30, 2013.

The Transition and Persistence (TAP) project was a three-year education project funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID). The project supported Ghana’s efforts to achieve the Education for All goals. The program also contributed to USAID’s Strategic Objective 8 (SO8): “Improved Quality of, and Access to, Basic Education” with an emphasis on “Increased Access to and Completion of Basic Education.”

The TAP project, implemented by Plan Ghana, aimed to increase junior high school (JHS) enrollment and completion rates in 156 junior high schools (JHSs) across 13 districts in four regions (Brong Ahafo, Central, Eastern, and Greater Accra). TAP collaborated with the Ghana Education Service (GES), the district education offices (DEOs), and USAID to select the project sites based on an analysis of education data. The findings identified transition districts with the greatest opportunities to realize ambitious JHS enrollment and completion rates in the four project regions. The schools in the selected districts had good performance at the primary level but reduced transition rate to the JHS level.
