Teachers are the most inspiring personalities in our community who help students achieve knowledge beyond their wildest expectations. With various teachable techniques and humor, they create an environment for students to connect with their careers in a meaningful way.

 However, the final nail in the coffin is always about low salary. As a result, the GNAT, together with a reputable board of trustees, has established a mutual fund to help GES staff members gain access to retirement supplements and minimum interest loan acquisition.

Importance Of The Teachers Trust Fund

The GES Teachers Trust Fund is a useful way for teachers to manage money when certain factors come into play or when specific needs arise. Therefore, below are the Teachers Trust Fund’s core objectives and how you can benefit if you join.

One of the GES Trust Fund’s core objectives is to assist members with accommodation needs. It supports members interested in investing in real estate or having a house but has no money upfront. The Fund is also into construction and rental of hostel facilities and office accommodation.

2. Access to credit purchases on items

The Teacher Trust Fund has a Credit Mall Limited subsidiary to help members buy household items on credit.

GNAT Trust Fund: Features And Application Process

GNAT Membership Portal

The Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT) has developed a new paperless system for its association members and has therefore created a Customer Relation Management (CRM) system for its associates.

According to the GNAT executives, this system is to help curb all the stress teachers go through whenever they want to have access to their contributions over a period. 

The association has therefore employed technological tools to improve the services being offered to its members.
