  • Construct or rehabilitate 288 school blocks with over 47,000 children enrolled, and
  • Construct or rehabilitate 350 boreholes, wells or non-conventional water systems affecting over 120,000 people.

Results to Date

Information on results to date is available in the Table of Key Performance Indicators (a subset of the full set monitored under the Ghana Monitoring and Evaluation Plan). The full set of performance indicators is detailed in the Monitoring and Evaluation Plan.

Impact Evaluation Framework

In addition to careful monitoring of implementation performance and measurement of preliminary results, MCC will be funding several independent evaluations that will assess what would have happened in the absence of the MCC investments and measure the gains in income that can be attributed specifically to MCC-funded activities. More information is available in the Monitoring and Evaluation Plan.

Timeframe Estimated Beneficiaries Estimated Benefits
Not specified 1,217,000

MCC considers beneficiaries of projects to be those individuals who realize improved standards of living, primarily through higher incomes, as a result of economic gains generated by MCC-funded projects.


“Estimated Net Benefits” is the sum of all projected net benefits accruing over the life of the project, typically 20 years, evaluated at a 10% discount rate. Estimates are reported in millions of US dollars in the year that the ERR analysis was completed.
