Better Educational Outcomes
|Norsaac considers both the internal environment of policies, rules, structures, processes, players and relationships within the sector as well as the wider forces that exert influence on how the system works for improved educational outcomes.
Young Female Platforms (YFP) was established in 2009 by Norsaac and its partner Actionaid Ghana to address the broad challenges of low participation of women and girls in leadership and decision-making processes. It serves as a learning platform for young girls in the Northern and North-East Regions to deliberate on various developmental and governance issues, particularly those affecting the growth, education and development of young girls and women in general. It is made up of 30 – 40 young females, including girls with disability at the SHS levels. The initiative currently is implemented in twenty-four (24) schools across northern and North-East regions.

Norsaac, in partnership with Children Believe (CB), is currently implementing the Nalerigu Area Child Development Program (NACDP) in the East Mamprusi Municipal.

The program is designed to address key areas, including education, WASH (Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene), health, and child protection.
Furthermore, it will advocate on critical issues and enhance the capacity of communities and stakeholders in child and youth participation, gender transformation, and responsive caregiving within program communities. All these interventions aim to cultivate healthy and educated children living in empowered communities.
