ActionAid is a UK-based organization that began operating in Ghana in 1990. They currently support over one million people in over 250 communities in the Upper East, Upper West, Northern, Brong Ahafo, Volta and Greater Accra regions. ActionAid Ghana aims to support the basic needs and rights of the poor by working with communities and local organizations to strengthen their efforts, making the most of their knowledge and experience to improve access to services. ActionAid Ghana also works with the government, community groups, and international partners to make policies that enhance the quality of life.
ActionAid Ghana’s work in women’s rights follows their overarching human-rights-based approach to focus on women in leadership, ending violence against women and girls, and empowering women in all walks of life.
ActionAid Ghana also invests heavily in education. Their emphasis is on securing girls’ and women’s right to education, emphasizing participation, transparency and accountability in the education sector. They help to support our basic education programs and have succeeded in increasing access to formal education throughout Ghana.
The Emerging Markets Foundation is a not-for-profit international organization that connects the resources of Emerging Markets (EM) professionals with the vitality of local organizations in emerging market countries. EMpower supports local organizations that provide at-risk youth with the tools and resources they need to lead healthy, productive lives.
Beginning in ???? EMpower has worked with Songtaba to help train young men and women in Nanumba North District in poultry production, marketing techniques and business management in an effort to expand the range of sustainable livelihood options for young people in the area.
Humanist Service Corps
Songtaba has partnered with the Humanist Service Corps since 2015 when we welcomed the first group of HSC volunteers to Bimbila. Under the guidance of local staff, these foreign volunteers work on specific project areas we have identified including, but not limited to: fundraising, communications, community sensitization, grant-writing, medical training, and more.
With their assistance, we have completed hundreds of health screenings for the Kukuo community and trained the community to continue these trainings in the future. We’ve gained region-wide and national attention through the coverage of our 10-year anniversary event, and we have formed partnerships with local and international organizations. As we continue our partnership, we look forward to seeing how we can continue to grow and expand our program areas.
