ActionAid is a global movement of people working together to further human rights and defeat poverty for all.

Volta Region

Communities in Volta region are predominantly small scale farmers, and ActionAid started formal operations at Kadjebi in the Volta Region of Ghana in November 2002.


ActionAid has been implementing programmes in Kadjebi in the Volta Region, in collaboration with relevant departments of the Kadjebi District Assembly and other governmental organisations.

These include the District Agriculture Development Unit, the District Directorate of Education and the Commissioner of Human Rights and Administrative Justice.

The organisation has facilitated the coming together of communities in the project area to form a strong network of communities in development, similar to the United Communities in Development of the Greater Accra Region. The Network of Communities in Development has become a core partner that ActionAid works with in Kadjebi District.

The focus of the programme in the area is Education, Food Rights, and Women’s Rights.

As part of efforts to make decentralisation work for the poor and excluded people, ActionAid is continuing to empower poor and excluded people to enable them, not only to take part in decisions that affect them and also demand their rights from duty bearers in the Kadjebi District in particular and the region as a whole.

In 2015, ActionAid moved to the Adaklu community, and begun enrolling pro-poor interventions
