Charity information

Ashanti Development

Ashanti Development is a volunteers’ charity, set up at the request of Ghanaians living in London who asked their friends and neighbours for help to improve the lives of people in their home villages

Founded 2005

  • Mission statement

    Our mission is to relieve poverty and promote health and development in and around the Ashanti Region of Ghana by means including the provision of safe and accessible water.

    Key Principles:

    Our work must be sustainable – no village shall be allowed to become dependent on us.
    Villagers contribute to every project, both with their local knowledge and by giving their labour free of charge.
    Whenever we give a village clean water, we will follow it up with training in health, hygiene and the construction of latrines.
    We always consult the villagers from the outset, and take account of their views at a formative stage in our programme planning.

  • Aims

    Ashanti Development aims to:

    • To raise enough money to build a kindergarten for the villages of Mpantuase and Nkwabrim in Ghana, so that village children can be looked after in safety while their parents work on their farms.
