ABSTRACT This study focuses essentially on analyzing the extent of collaboration between World-Vision Ghana, the Government of Ghana and schools in ensuring the provision of quality education, as a way of promoting development across the country, with special reference to the Ga-West, Fanteakwa, and Afram Plains Districts. The study is purely qualitative and relies primarily on literature review and interviews for data collection and analyses. The main objective of the study was to assess the role of World Vision educational projects on children in rural communities who are not privileged to receive government support which leads to low literacy and learning in these communities. Major findings from the study reveals that World Vision-Ghana has adopted initiatives cooperation with the government and other relevant stakeholders garnered at ensuring the provision of education in Ghana, with special emphasis on the study area. Paramount among the initiatives are awareness creation, lobbying for effective legislation and policies, assisting in capacity, among others. The study also shows that the impacts such initiatives have had on education in the study area include improvement in grassroot participation in education delivery, improvement in general child literacy across the country, ensure equitable access to good quality, child-friendly free universal basic education, enhancement of teaching skills, and helping in the attainment of the goals and objectives of FCUBE. The study also reveals that the government, in cooperation with World Vision-Ghana have encountered a number of challenges in their quest to ensure the provision and improvement in child education in Ghana. These challenges coupled with economic hardships, lack of political will on the part of the government, among others. Towards this end, the study recommends that the Government of Ghana should continue to collaborate effectively with INGOs such as World Vision, to be able to effectively tackle the educational challenges especially in the provision of child education in Ghana.
