Our vision is for an open, transparent and peaceful Ghana that responds to people’s needs and rights, cares for the environment and allows women and men to achieve their full potential.
We want all Ghanaian citizens to be empowered to participate effectively at all levels of government and decision-making and to hold institutions to account. Along with our partners, we are campaigning for tax justice.
Most farming families experience food insecurity; one reason is lack of access to markets. There are gluts and low prices during harvest season and scarcity and high prices at other times of the year.
We are helping poor farmers to better access markets so that they can receive the best price for their crops and develop sustainable livelihoods.
People in rural areas, as well as women, youth and minority groups are underrepresented in the political systems and often their needs are not addressed.
For example, government spending on health and education is concentrated on the wealthier, urban areas. 70% of all doctors are based in the greater Accra and Ashanti regions, with only 4.2% in the three rural northern regions.
Out of a total of 17,315 candidates who contested the 2010 local level elections, only 412 women were elected.
The current parliament has just 29 women, representing 11% of the house.
