Description

In 2012, the Chinese government co-financed a rural community poverty alleviation pilot project in the Asikuma-Odoben-Brakwa district in the Central Region. The Chinese government gave a grant of 1.5 million USD while the Ghanaian government made a partnership contribution of 500,000 USD. The project mainly includes the construction of schools, community centers, and teacher quarters as well as some roads, drains, and a library in the areas of Fosuansa, Kokoso and Amanfopong. It was planned for the projects to be implemented from January 2012 to September 2013, but was reported in June 2013 that they had already been completed.
