Working in Ghana
Alongside our work in the UK and supporting wider international campaigns, Gower Street has a special geographic focus on Ghana. As a country that is in the frontline of the climate crisis and is known for its active and committed civil society, Ghana is a place where change is both needed and possible. Gower Street has a long history of supporting education work in Ghana and in the spend down phase up until 2030 this focus is being combined with support for civil society action on climate. Finding the most effective way for a UK based trust to support work in Ghana is a process of ongoing learning; both in terms of who we fund and how we identify them. We aim for our decision making to be as participatory and Ghana driven as possible. This blog post from December 2022 explains how this approach is developing.
