Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs)

The vision of every local authority is to provide its people with the best quality of life through accelerated and sustained socio-economic development. In an attempt to increase the developmental status of the district, the District Assembly collaborates with a number of NGOs, which are actively involved in the development process in the district. The District Assembly has an NGO desk officer who working through the Consortium of NGOs in the district coordinates the activities of these NGOs, so as to avoid the problem of over concentration of facilities in one area as some NGOs are engaged in similar activities.  The active NGOs in the district include:

  • Catholic Relief services
  • ADRA
  • Star of Hope International
  • Action Aid Ghana
  • Rural Aid
  • Single Mothers Association
  • Red Cross Society
  • Catholic Diocesan Development Office
  • Presbyterian Primary Health Care
  • TRAX
  • Technoserve
  • Rural Help Integrated
  • Link Community Development
  • Sight Savers
  • VSO
  • Widows and Orphans Ministries
  • Trade Aid

These NGOs and CBOs are mostly into poverty alleviation among the rural communities in the Municipality. However, we have some of them such as Rural Aid, which is into provision of water, Rural Health Integrated; which is into reproductive health and Link Community Development which is into the educational sector.
