Program Areas
Child Protection

Our work in the area of Child Protection aims at empowering Children, Communities, Influencers, Service Providers, Duty Bearers and Powerholders to leverage local and international policy frameworks such as the United Nations Convention.

Health Systems Strengthening

Our work here aims at strengthening all the six building blocks of a health system which are Service Delivery, Health Work Force, Health Information, Medical Products, Vaccines and Technologies, Health Financing and Leadership & Governance.

Governance & Accountability

This strand of work uses the Human Rights principle of Participation, Accountability, Non-discrimination, Empowerment and Linkages to Human Rights (PANEL) and frameworks such as the Governance Act and the SDGs as a guiding principle.

Anti-Corruption & Tax Justice

Our Anti-Corruption strand of work focuses on promoting citizen capacity to monitor the implementation of government procurement and service delivery to identify, report and seek remedy to petty and grand corruption in the delivery of social protection.

Women Empowerment

This strand of work focuses on creating an enabling environment where women, adolescents and girls are empowered to exercise and claim their rights to enjoy life free from violence, abuse and neglect across all facets of society.

Sustainable Agriculture, Food & Nutrition Security and Natural Resource Governance

Working with our partners and local state and non-state actors, we mobilize and create platforms for marginalized groups such as women farmers, Persons with Disabilities (PWDs) and smallholder farmers.

Our Projects


This 3-year long project initiated by Oxfam

Ghana in cooperation with the European

Union aims at empowering women, girls,

boys and men to take positive action in

ending gender-based violence. Through

training school children, women with small

business and male champions on the topics

of child protection, sexual health and

reproductive rights and equipping them with

relevant skills, we aim to contribute to gender equality and female empowerment. 


The Women Entrepreneurs in Northern Ghana Gain Access to Integrated Services through Agent Networks (WE GAIN) is a 2-year initiative of the Women and Girls Empowered (WAGE) consortium led by Grameen with support from the American Bar Association. The objective is to increase the sustainable access of women entrepreneurs to a range of financial, health, GBV and other critical services they need to achieve personal and business growth resilience.

Peace in Schools

The Preventing Extremism and Conflict in Educational Institutions and Schools project is part of the Preventing Electoral Violence and providing Security to the Northern Border Regions of Ghana (NORPREVSEC) Programme led by Coginta, funded by the European Union and supported by the Ghanaian Government. Its objective is to strengthen local capacity to prevent violence and ensure human security through increased capacity, collaboration, and adoption of preventive diplomacy in educational institutions.


The 3-year long Gender Rights and Empowerment Programme (GREP) is led by the STAR-Ghana Foundation with funding from the Foreign, Common Wealth and Development Office (FCDO) of the United Kingdom. RISE-Ghana is implementing a sub-project aiming towards strengthening health committees and citizens' groups to champion access to quality maternal health in the Talensi and Nabdam districts of the Upper East Region.


RISE-Ghana supports groups of women in petty trading with capital through small savings and loan schemes for business expansion. This became necessary due to our community feedback sessions that revealed that many businesses managed by women collapse easily due to limited capital for expansion, contributing to domestic violence. During their monthly meetings, these groups in selected communities in Talensi District and Bolgatanga Municipalityalso receive training on good financial management, simple digital financial literacy, record keeping and GBV prevention.
