OPPORTUNITIES

While an enviable amount has been achieved in Kwahu Tafo, much remains to be done. Widespread poverty still affects health, employment and education, to the extent that clean drinking water is not yet available everywhere, the frequently clogginged river Brupu induces malaria and other diseases, sanitation is a major priority along with agricultural training and the provision of electricity for outlying households, and some children are excluded from school for lack of £7 a year.

 

The principal fields that offer opportunity are:  

Agriculture                     Education                         Health Awareness

Health Facilities             Income Generation         Job creation

Literacy                          Sanitation                        Tourism

Finance is needed to assist children to attend school at all levels, and to provide Tertiary Education loans.

 

Teaching methodology in Ghana could benefit from overseas practices and understanding.

 

Wider access to clean drinking water is of prime necessity.

 

Sanitation needs are serious.

 

Business start-up funding is required, not least to take advantage of the growing tourism potential of the Kwahu Area

 

Agricultural education and practical support are vital to the area.

Potential donors may like to know that over its fourteen years Friends of Tafo found that their most generous donors regularly invited repeat applications, experiencing a real sense that they were helping a responsible community where their money was wisely solicited, carefully managed, and evidently well spent. 

 

The hallmarks of this outstanding community are:
 

  1. Its development projects are locally conceived, devised, assessed

    and managed

  2. It achieves total accountability. Every penny that reaches

    Kwahu Tafo Progress Council is spent as planned, reports are

    published, and the Council’s accounts are subjected

    to annual professional Audit.

 

In Kwahu Tafo you know where your money goes, you see what it does, and you see a community truly benefitting from the advice and guidance it has chosen to receive from outside, and then converting it to sustainable practicality.
