The United States is donating Braille teaching and learning materials for 1,400 visually impaired Ghanaian students.
The materials were developed in collaboration with the Ministry of Education’s Special Education Division. U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) Education Office Director Rasheena Reid joined the Deputy Minister of Education Reverend John N. Fordjour yesterday at the Akropong School for the Blind to officially present 1,400 Braille Teaching and Learning Materials to all nine Special Education Schools that support visually impaired Ghanaian learners.
“Education opens doors for professional, economic, and cultural opportunities. Visually impaired students deserve those same opportunities. We congratulate the Ministry of Education and Ghana Education Service on its commitment to inclusive education, especially as the Government of Ghana supports the Global Disability Summit,” noted the USAID’s Rasheena Reid.
This collaboration with Ghana’s Ministry of Education focuses on promoting quality education for Ghanaian children. The “Partnership for Education: Learning” program, also known as “Learning”, partnered with the Ministry to create the materials to help improve the reading performance of visually impaired learners in Ghana
