The United States government says it will provide $138 million to Ghana to support human capital development.

The areas include health, education, climate, and peace-building.

The U.S Ambassador to Ghana, Virginia E. Palmer has revealed.

Delivering a keynote address at the just ended Global Citizen Festival held in Ghana over the weekend, she said U.S. and Ghana have strong ties to protect.

Ambassador Palmer added that she will do whatever possible to help achieve this.

“U.S.-Ghana ties are strong, rooted in history and our common democratic values.  It’s wonderful to see Ghanaian and American artists share this global stage.

“Our commitments tonight for Ghana affirm African agency, strengthen partnerships, and catalyze economic growth and opportunities.

“The United States Government will work with Congress to provide $138 million in new funding to support human capital development in health, education, climate, and peacebuilding — and all of our investments will adhere to principles of gender equality, women’s empowerment, and inclusive development,” she said.
