The beneficiary districts in the Upper East Region are the Bawku Municipal, Kassena-Nankana District, Bongo District, Builsa District, Talensi-Nabdam and the Jirapa Lambusi District in the Upper West Region.

Mr Alhassan Samari, Upper East Regional Minister, welcoming the people, urged the assemblies and other stakeholders to take the project seriously to enable government achieve its aim of availing every child of school going-age the opportunity to have education.
