The Community Development Foundation launched its Fifth Community Support Project in Anloga, located in the Volta region, in collaboration with the Ghana Philanthropy Forum.

The foundation, dedicated to supporting specific geographical areas or communities, focuses on pooling donations and resources to address community needs. Their aim is to serve as a catalyst for resolving issues within communities.

The Anloga Community Foundation, now the fifth initiative in the Volta region, has yet to finalize its project. However, it is inclined to explore the area’s tourism potential and harness external human resources to foster local development.

Previously, the foundation successfully implemented projects such as a water initiative in Mafi Kpedzeglo, a Community ICT Center in Takla Gbogame, and the establishment of the Volta Muslim Community Foundation. These efforts included founding the first Regional Arabic Secondary School for Muslim Communities in Ho Zongo and Sogakope, as part of the Fievie Traditional Area’s Abolo Za (Bread Festival).

During the launch, the non-governmental organization presented a computer system to Togbe Ziwu IV Dufia of Anloga, aiding in effective data collection and protection for the newly formed foundation.

The President of the Ghana Philanthropy Forum, Dr. Ben Ocra, highlighted that the launch stemmed from collective aspirations and dedication under the leadership of Togbe Ziwu IV and the elders of Anloga.

He emphasized the foundation’s role as a vehicle for channeling the community’s resources, talents, and sustainable development ideas, especially in cases where government resources may not suffice for addressing all community challenges.

Dr. Ocra outlined the foundation’s focus on supporting educational programmes, scholarships, promoting health and well-being, empowering youth, and cultivating the community’s culture and arts to celebrate its rich heritage.

Underlining the success of the Anloga Community Foundation, Dr. Ocra urged active involvement and a call to action in shaping the destiny of the Anloga Community.

“In an era where people are becoming more self-centered and communities struggle to receive their share of national resources, let us go the extra mile by fostering love for our community and contributing to its development,” he urged.

Dr. Ocra assured ongoing support, necessary training, and capacity-building for the foundation’s board, working groups, and partners, emphasizing the importance of accountability forums.
