The St Basilide Vocational School in Kaleo, Upper West Ghana is using ICT since 2011.
They have received 20 computers from GIFEC, but no full time ICT teacher. A JICA
volunteer (from Japan) who barely speaks English teaches the students in basic ICT,
but she does not have time to teach the teachers as well. Peps-C will support the school
to integrate ICT in their classrooms both in the main subjects (Carpentry & Joinery,
Plumbing&Welding, Electrical Installation and Building& Construction, but also in
general subject under the Ghana Education Service. The school has 454 students,
with only 24 girls. The computer is used also in administration, but not networked
and without internet access. In the next yearteachers and administrators should be
able to improve their skills into teaching&learning and school administration.

The principal also mentioned how this could be integrated in the administration. The accountant shows that she already is doing the finances on her own laptop, but she still writes it manually in the books, because the auditors require this.
It is a traditional boys school with subjects like Carpentry, Auto mechanics, Construction (with plumbing, block making, etc). 10% of the students are girls.
St Anne is a vocational school for girls. they teach subjects as
Fashion and Design, traditional weaving and Catering.

Over 2000 students of three basic and junior high schools in Savelugu and
Tamale District, Ghana will get better access to educational information with
this project by using computers. Computers will be placed in the schools and
teachers are trained to use it in their courses. Students become better
educated and therefore have more chances to go to senior high school.
Teachers benefit as well because by using computers it will take them less
time to prepare classes notes, assignment etc. and will be better equiped to teach. To support this project!
and learning in the Nkwanta District (volta Region, Ghana) through ICT in three Basic & Junior High Schools, by Wadep a local NGO with support from Connect4Change (IICD, Edukans)
The Women and Development Project WADEP) is located in the northern part
of the Volta Region since 1995. This initiative came as a result of the abject poverty
which was analyzed as multidimensional, gendered, dynamic, complex and specific
as a result of the location of the district. Women bear the brunt of this as result of culture.
They work longer hours and days and had limited access to income earning
opportunities yet are responsible for meeting the needs of the household.
GINKS and IICD Prodcution 2012
Some Challenges of Saboba Medical Centre includes:
• Lack of space for archive
• Many patient records get lost
• Many patients forget cards, new record made without medical history
• Many manual entries at every department (Lab, Pharmacy, Theatre, Ward, Consulting, NHIS)
• Only 1 doctor, 70 – 90 beds
• Data entry once, filling reports to others automatically without additional actions
The Connect4Change programme from IICD and Cordaid will support CHAG and Saboba Medical
Centre in implementing a hospital management information system that will improve the medical
care of Saboba Medical Centre.
