Top World Bank official lists benefits of Ghana’s Free SHS programme

World Bank Country Director for Ghana, Henry Kerali, has described Ghana’s Free Senior High School (Free SHS) programme as an initiative that will give girls the chance to acquire employable skill sets before reproduction.

Citinewsroom.com reports that World Bank's Kerali believes such empowerment would better prepare them for motherhood, reduces the high birth rate, maternal mortality and boost the Human Capital Index (HCI).

The HCI according to World Bank, consist of the knowledge, skills and health that people accumulate throughout their lives enabling them to realise their potential as productive members of society.

The dialogue, which would be a quarterly interactive programme among 16 African Countries, seeks to promote social inclusion, accountability and advocate for greater voices.
