Development work in Ghana

Ghana’s story is one of relative development success. A beacon of stability and democracy for over 20 years, it has halved the proportion of people living in poverty and has held peaceful and internationally-recognised elections, most recently in 2016.

Development programmes in Liberia are also run from the Ghana office.
