The Ghana Education Trust Fund (GETFund) is a public trust set up by an Act of Parliament in the year 2000.
Its core mandate is to provide funding to supplement government efforts for the provision of educational infrastructure and facilities within the public sector from the pre-tertiary to the tertiary level.
The Government sees the release of GETFund. And the Ghana stock exchange secretariat stands to receive it. Furthermore, they later oversee redistribution. This is to help students who need it the most.
