The Bibiani Anhwiaso Bekwai District Development (BABDD) Project
January 2011 to March 2014
WUSC began working with regional government in rural, western Ghana in January 2011 on a multi-stakeholder initiative to improve education, employment and governance in 12 communities in the Bibiani-Anhwiaso-Bekwai region. Our partners on this project were the district government of Bibiani-Anhwiaso-Bekwai and the Ministry of Local Government and Rural Development of Ghana. Funding partners were the Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development and Rio Tinto Alcan. Taking an integrated approach on development issues, the project looked at key aspects of development at the local level ̶ i.e. education, hygiene, water, sanitation, youth employability ̶ and the overarching issue of governance and community participation in development processes.
