Abstract

The article aims to provide a brief overview of the gender perspective in the
Sector-wide Approaches (SWAp) and its ability to integrate gender equality
concerns in education in Ghana. This approach has been strategically adopted
by various aid agencies as an effective and efficient tool to ensure
mainstreaming gender in different fields. In this article, we will try to analyse
some of the ways in which mainstreaming gender has taken place through
SWAp in the field of education in Ghana. It analyses the extent to which SWAp
as a strategy has been able to mainstream gender in education in Ghana.
