CARE International in Ghana: In 1994, CARE started doing business in Ghana. Since then, the CARE Gulf of Guinea country mission has grown so that the Accra office can now help with programs in Togo and Benin. In July 2010, CARE replaced its mission in three countries with offices in Ghana and Benin. The Benin office is also in charge of a few activities in Togo.
Most of CARE Ghana’s projects are carried out in collaboration with local and civil society groups. This lets CARE work more closely with the government and the private sector, work well with other groups, and have the biggest impact possible. CARE Ghana gives the most attention to rural, poor, and vulnerable women and organizes its work around health, governance, education, and sustainable ways to make a living.
