ASR Africa Awards $3million Education Infrastructure Grant To Ghana

ASR Africa Awards $3million Education Infrastructure Grant To GhanaThe Ghanaian Government, through its Ministry of Education, has been awarded a $3million education infrastructure support grant from the Abdul Samad Rabiu Africa Initiative (ASR Africa). This grant will be drawn from ASR Africa’s annual $100million Africa Fund for Social Development and Renewal and was announced during the presentation of the letter of award to the Ghanaian Government at the Jubilee House in Accra, recently.


Speaking at the event in Accra, Ghana’s capital, Udoh Ubon, the Managing Director of ASR Africa commended the President of Ghana, Nana Akufo-Addo for his sincere commitment to developing the educational system at all levels in Ghana. According to Ubon, this award was significant because Ghana is also the first African country beneficiary of an ASR Africa grant after Nigeria. “ASR Africa is an initiative of industrialist and philanthropist, Abdul Samad Rabiu, who has decided to give back to the African continent to promote sustainable health care, education and social development. Whilst reviewing potential national beneficiaries for the African aspect of the grant, we were encouraged by the strides made by the Ghanaian government in Education. We believe this $3million ASR Africa education infrastructure grant will go a long way in supporting the eradication of “schools under trees” across the country whilst developing primary education infrastructure across the country.

According to her, the President Nana Akufo-Addo administration is committed to improving the quality of education and educational infrastructure across the country and this grant is a welcome development which would accelerate the work already being done. She further added that the government will work together with ASR Africa based on the agreed Mutual Accountability Framework to come up with a programme to build several primary schools across Ghana under the grant. She further praised the Chairman of BUA Group and ASR Africa, Alhaji Abdul Samad Rabiu, for his commitment to the African continent in business and philanthropy.
