The Improving Maternal Health Service Delivery through Participatory Governance project (IMPROVE) was a three-year EU-funded project, which was implemented across 30 districts in the three Northern Regions of Ghana by Christian Aid and SEND Ghana.
The overall objective of this project was to influence and ensure effective delivery of maternal health services in Ghana and progress towards the achievement of Millennium Development Goal five: improve maternal health.
The Growing Rice Market Opportunities for Women (GROW) in northern Ghana was a two-year project that sought to promote Ghana to become completely self-sufficient in rice production by 2018.
The project contributed to poverty reduction and economic development by improving household incomes, food security and employment of beneficiaries across the rice value chain, especially women entrepreneurs who carry out parboiling processing of rice.
Maximising Rice and Key Enterprises in Target Sites (Markets) was a five-year project that sought to capitalise on the rapidly expanding domestic rice market. It targeted an estimated 6,782 beneficiaries (rice farmers and processors as well as vegetable farmers) in the Upper East Region (UER) of Ghana.
Northern Ghana Green Market
The Northern Ghana Green Market (NGGM) project aimed to increase incomes of vegetable farmers through an inclusive ‘green’ vegetable market system. Christian Aid partnered with a local partner (CAOF) to implement this project in the Northern, Upper East, and Upper West regions, working with 3,000 producers.
Women in Governance (WIG – Faith based)
Christian Aid Ghana worked with the Christian Council of Ghana (CCG) to implement the Women in Governance Project (WIG). This three-year project sought to address the issue of low representation of women and girls at the decision-making levels of the church by developing their capacity for leadership, promoting gender-friendly biblical teachings as well as facilitating the creation of an enabling environment. The project was implemented in the Greater Accra, Northern and Ashanti regions of Ghana.
