In a joint statement, the United Nations in Ghana highlights some key interventions that have enabled continuity of learning even during the COVID-19 pandemic. The UN adds that despite some challenges encountered by students in accessing and using some of the innovative tools and systems introduced to ensure learning continues, "it is obvious that Ghana is striving to change course to transform education, and the United Nations in Ghana is delighted to partner with the government in its mission.
