There is a very high demand for capacity building of local stakeholder groups. We have received several requests from community based organisations (CBOs), farmers based organisations (FBOs) and small NGOs for trainingin business planning; developing fundraising strategies and plans; minute taking and report writing skills; small groups/association management;  developing child abuse and protection policies and procedures; and financial management. Funding is required to develop course modules. We can deliver these capacity building training activities to local stakeholder groups, associations and social enterprises which have multiplied in northern Ghana to assist poor rural communities tackle poverty and deprivation. Building their capacity will ensure they have the ability and skills to influence adaptive change for sustainable development for millions of poor families who live and depend on degraded ecosystems of Ghana.
