To identify some challenges and successes of the ongoing e-Transform Capacity Building Project funded by the World Bank, a Beneficiary Presentation workshop has been organized by the Ghana-India Kofi Annan Centre of Excellence in ICT (AITI-KACE) implementers of the project.

The workshop offered a platform for some of the beneficiaries of the e-Transform Capacity Building Project to make a presentation to stakeholders on what they have been trained on and how they are implementing it in their respective schools.

Among the stakeholders were officers from the Ministry of Education, Ghana Education Service, the Ministry of Communication and Management and Staff of AITI-KACE.
