The Ghana Anti-Corruption Coalition (GACC) is implementing the project dubbed “Strengthening Accountability and Transparency in the Utilization of Public Resources at the Local Level through Active Citizen Participation to Enhance Quality Service Delivery and Development”, which is a two-year project funded by the Open Society Initiative for West Africa (OSIWA). The project seeks to increase transparency and accountability in local governance by supporting 12 citizens’ groups to hold their District Assembly accountable for better development results in the implementation of their Medium Term Plan, specifically the 2017 and 2018 Annual Action Plans.
Particularly, the project will build the capacity of 12 citizens groups to use appropriate social accountability tools such as community score cards and public expenditure tracking surveys in monitoring and tracking developmental projects and public funds in the implementation of selected Health and Education projects contained in the annual action plans of the district assemblies.
The project will be executed in 12 districts in 3 regions in Ghana as listed below;
Asante Akyem North Municipal
Brong Ahafo Region
Kintampo North Municipal
West Gonja District
Savelugu Nanton District
Light for children is the focal organisation for this project at Atwima Nwabiagya District.
