The Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Protection with support from the World Bank has officially launched the Ghana National Household Registry (GNHR) Data Collection Exercise in the Upper East Region Tuesday 27th February 2018 at Pusiga.
The Data Collection Exercise, which was first carried out successfully in the Upper West Region, seeks to register poor and vulnerable households in order to ensure that real beneficiaries truly enjoy social protection interventions.
The exercise forms part of the mandate of GNHR to establish a single entry national household register from which all social protection programmes in Ghana will select their beneficiaries.
Launching the exercise, the Minister for Gender, Children and Social Protection, Otiko Afisah Djaba said that President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo is committed to the systematic reduction of poverty in the country and bringing relief to the vulnerable and less fortunate. Therefore, GNHR is one of the ways intended to realize that vision.
Hon. Otiko Djaba cautioned field staff of the exercise to strictly adhere to the rules and regulations of making entries as the accuracy of the Data collected will be crucial in achieving the main objective of establishing the Registry.
"Let’s all help to build an excellent database and be part of this beautiful and efficient process", Hon. Otiko Afisah Djaba said.
