Ghana - Women's Community Development Project - Completion Report

08-Feb-2008

In the context of the Ghanaian Government’s efforts to encourage effective measures to improve women’s social circumstances and economic position, the Government carried out a general assessment of the female population in the country. The assessment resulted in the identification and analysis of potential areas of concern, including access to basic education, financial support in the form of credit, health care, family planning services, vocational skills, supply of clean water, etc. The project sought to extend basic social and economic opportunities to women in village communities in all 10 regions of the country. The government of the Republic of Ghana submitted a formal request for funding of the project to the Bank in December 1990. A Bank’s mission visited Ghana in March 1991 to appraise the project, which was to be implemented by an NGO.
