GHANA NATIONAL EDUCATION CAMPAIGN COALITION - GNECC

About us

The Ghana National Education Campaign Coalition (GNECC) is a network of civil society organizations, professional groupings, educational/research institutions and other practitioners interested in promoting quality basic education for all. In 1999 just before the Dakar Conference on Education For All (EFA) this coalition was formed by civil society organizations engaged in education delivery and concerned about the falling standards of education in Ghana. The coalition is engaged in community mobilization, research and advocacy to ensure government fulfils its commitments on EFA.a lot has been achieved since then but a lot more needs to be done. Currently GNECC and NNED bring together nearly 300 NGOs, CBOs, FBOs and individuals in education across the country. With the exception of four (4) secretariat staff, everybody else is a volunteer. Its philosophy is premised on the fact that education is a fundamental human right and key to fighting against poverty.
Consequent upon that, it demonstrates efforts at conceptualizing the Jomtien Declarations and related global conventions such as the Dakar Declarations, the Millennium Development Goals etc for the attainment of quality and free compulsory universal basic education for all (EFA) in Ghana.
