Training and orientation in Ghana

Global Impact Study research lead, Araba Sey, just spent one week in Ghana for a training exercise with STEPRI, the implementation team for our inventory and survey activities in Ghana. In addition to learning about the overall project structure and research design, participants discussed the inventory data collection process, and practiced administering the survey instruments.

While there is a fairly significant public access ICT industry in Ghana, there is limited readily available information on the types, location and distribution of public access ICT venues. Project implementation in Ghana will begin in February with inventory data collection to provide context for development of sampling strategies for the venue, user, and nonuser surveys.
