Some few NGOs and CBOs exist in the Municipality and are engaged in a number of activities to enhance the provision of basic services (Water & Sanitation, Health, Education, Housing etc.). Notable among these groups are:
The World Vision International (operate mainly in the Afram Plains region of the Municipality),
Habitat for Humanities (provision of affordable accommodation), Mercy Mission (provision of vocational skills for the disabled) and Catholic Relief Services (provision of relief items to the vulnerable).
With financial assistance from Ghana AIDS Commission some CBOs and NGOs have been able to intensify their campaign against the spread of HIV/AIDS in the Municipality. However, lack of effective collaboration and coordination between these groups and the assembly is undermining their effort in the Municipality.
