Presently, Ghana has 18,530 primary schools, 8,850 junior secondary schools, 900 senior secondary schools, 28 training colleges, 20 technical institutions, four diploma-awarding institutions, six public universities and over 10 private universities. Most Ghanaians have relatively easy access to primary and secondary education. However, the cost of school fees, uniforms and school equipment, alongside the need for children to support their families by working has meant that the fluctuating numbers in education remains a problem that the government is determined to deal with by various measures. A new Education Plan was finalise in 2007 and the aim is to provide universal free primary education by 2015 in line with the Millennium Development Goals. A key issue for the country has been the fact that as the various measures have been successful in attracting more children into education, the shortage of teaching rooms, equipment and teachers has become even worse.

ARA in cooperation with Kinderträume-Ghana e.V. a German base NGO established a school complex from creach till class six in Ofankoor in the central region.
