Plan has been working in Ghana since 1992, helping poor children to access their rights to health, education, food security and protection.
Our programmes benefit 28,379 children in 300 communities across the country.
Having completed the construction of 8 irrigation dams in the dry Tumu programme area, Plan Ghana is now focusing on strengthening community-based water management structures to ensure effective use of the dams to enhance livelihoods. This goes hand in hand with supporting Village Savings and Loans Associations (VSLA) which are spreading in the communities; helping villagers to become financially independent.
