Job Opportunities at STAR-Ghana Foundation (SGF)

STAR-Ghana Foundation (SGF) is a national center for Active Citizenship and Local Philanthropy. Its approach to fulfilling its purpose is to function as Convener, Catalyst and Coordinator of civil society efforts towards systemic and transformational change in Ghana and to harness learning for continual development and innovation. Our objective is to see a well-informed and active Ghanaian populace able to contribute to revolutionary change that advances democracy, accountability, and social inclusion.

Background

There are growing anxieties about insecurity, coming from a mix of internal reasons and external dangers of spillover and the infiltration of violent extremism. Particularly for Northern Ghana, which shares relatively porous borders with surrounding countries currently combating violent extremism and its repercussions, the vulnerabilities to radicalization and violent extremism are higher.

These vulnerabilities are worsened by a combination of internal factors such as high poverty and unemployment rates, existing local conflicts, and the influx of refugees from neighbouring countries such as Burkina Faso to some border communities in Northern Ghana to seek refuge and escape from attacks in their places of origin. As a result, the resilience of these border communities in Northern Ghana is challenged, making vulnerable people in these communities more prone to radicalization and violent extremism.
