5. Furtherance sustainability plan, the World Vision Ghana WASSA EAST ADP had funded our cost to let the rural enterprise development project (REP) of the district ASSEMBLY train the association of PHIV (23 in NO. Both infected and affected) in types of cake and liquid soaps production. Same World Vision Ghana had passionately sponsored our technical training of HIV Home base care givers (20) to provide support to the clients.
This partnership formerly dates back from 2004 when our organization expressed worry and the desire to develop capacities of MDAs sub-structures. A programme code-named Strengthening community mgt systems practices (emphasis on zonal, unit and area /town councils development) under the organization key programme
. Though the agenda experienced setbacks due to funding constrain. the exited pilot project had chalked successes in the 3 targeted communities namely Kwabaa, Dompim NO1 and Sekyere Krobo in the Daboase area council, Current base line results indicate a strong cooperation among the members of the unit committee and traditional authority/elders /schools. All the towns have got electricity. good pipe borne water and education infrastructure..
Their interaction with the District Assembly has been regular and fruit bearing 60 men and women comprising of unit committee and Assembly, Nananom Opinion Leaders have their leadership ,resource mob. Conflict mgt skills well improved..
By virtue of such modest initiative, the organization members were duly trained together with other CSOs such as Berea Foundation, SENT Foundation to undertake the Independent Civil Society Organization Monitoring and Evaluation of the ongoing Ghana School Feeding Programme.
The organization was assigned to 8 Districts namely Wassa East, Shama, .Nzema East, Wassa West (WR), Assin North, Assin South, Upper and Lower Denkyera in Central Region. After that, ZUTA FORUM were established to ensure continuous monitoring of the various actors within GSFP through the applications of social and financial accountability principles .Major Outcomes are among the following; increased population and regular school attendance at the primary and basic levels. National working policy framework in the pipeline, effective and efficient monitoring and coordination in place and above all, GHANA now managing the with very little external monetary support, therefore gearing towards complete ownership of the programme by Ministry of Local govt. and rural development in cooperation with the various district Assemblies.
