The 2011 Ghana Sustainable Change Program Bulding Partnerships for Sustainable Growth and Development.
David Mutua has been invited by Ohio State University students to share his skills and experiences as well as involvement in Rural Communities Development work in Africa and probably involve the Africa Professionals Network of Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky (see http://africanprofessionalsnetwork.org/index.html)in sharing with the students and supporting their work in Ghana.
Ohio State University Students in partnership with representatives from the Offinso North District, the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, and the International Poverty Solutions Collaborative at OSU will work together in partnership to promote long term growth and development.
The 2011 Ghana program is entitled Sustainable Change. Ghana Sustainable Change Program Bulding Partnerships for Sustainable Growth and Development.
There is a prevalent need for effective planning in Africa today. Facing issues such as rapid urbanization, quickly growing informal settlements and the need for strategies to mitigate the effects of natural disasters and the consequences of climate change, the time to face these challenges is now. While Ghana is on track to meet the United Nations Millennium Development Goals by 2015, the country is not exempt from these issues. The purpose of this program is to provide culturally sensitive localized, district planning to assist the Offinso North District in meeting the challenges of population growth. Our approach focuses on working hand-in-hand with the community.
