Formed from the merger of the British colony of the Gold Coast and the Togoland trust territory, Ghana in 1957 became the first sub-Saharan country in colonial Africa to gain its independence.

Ghana has since independence made significant strides in its education system. The education landscape in Ghana today is the result of major policy initiatives in education adopted by past governments as well as the present one.

Ghana has 12,130 primary schools, 5,450 junior secondary schools, 503 senior secondary schools, 21 training colleges, 18 technical institutions, two diploma-awarding institutions and five universities serving a population of 17 million.

- Engage in, and provide input towards the ICT curriculum recently initiated in Ghana

- Begin at least one after school program
