Ghana Together Affiliates

As part of our Mission, Ghana Together facilitates other organizations or individuals that wish to work in Ghana when our mission and values mesh. Axim is a municipality, not a village, so there are many opportunities there, as well as great need. Our own skills and resources go only so far so we leverage our knowledge and connections to "link" others to on the ground connections in the Axim/Nzema area.

We can help with project planning, assessing need, communication, money transfer issues, information, and local connections. Our Ghanaian Western Heritage Home partners coordinate on the ground there, especially interfacing with entities such as the District Assembly, Nzema-Axim School District, Chief's Office, and local contractors.

If your organization would like to develop a project in this part of Ghana, please contact us.
