Executive Director’s Message
Community Focus Foundation Ghana
I bring you warm greetings. The Community Focus Foundation Ghana (CFF-Ghana) is a development oriented Civil Society Organization (CSO) established in the year 2013 and registered under Ghanaian Laws and regulated by the relevant state agencies in Ghana, West Africa. The Foundation’s intervention is a priority initiative which depends on RESEARCH and INNOVATION to promote development in an equitable manner. CFF-Ghana has a promising story to tell. Progress stories that inspires and gives hope are what you will be reading on this Website. Aggressive advocacy initiatives that resulted in evidence-based reforms are what you will be reading from our Website.
Distinguished reader, the time for strengthening our communities through collective advocacy to ensuring that the governance architecture prioritizes the needs of the citizenry is now more imperative. So much of what we seek to do in line with our Vision is to empower citizens to demand accountability from duty bearers in all spheres of our development. Though a lot of progress and achievements have been made in various areas towards the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), a lot more needs to be done especially in many developing countries such as Ghana. To be able achieve the global goals, collective actions are needed to be taken by UN Member countries as a sign of genuine and representative country ownership of the seventeen (17) identified goals and their specific targets.
Interestingly, this is the philosophical foundation upon which CFF-Ghana’s interventions are hinged-on. The Foundation puts Sustainable Development and a people centered approaches at the core of its operations. Our concept and approach seeks to integrate effective governance mechanisms into our social, economic and environmental aspects of sustainability to meet the development aspirations of Ghanaians and other nationals alike. In doing so, we seek to forge a New Global Partnership with a spirit of solidarity, cooperation, and mutual accountability, which is centered around people, including those affected by poverty and exclusion including women, youth, the aged, disabled persons, and other vulnerable groups.
One critical goal of CFF is to complement governments’ effort by contributing its quota for a transformed economy for jobs and inclusive growth – that harnesses innovation, technology, and the potential of business to improve livelihoods.
CFF will continue to promote collaboration among development practitioners and networks them with civil society organizations, multilateral institutions, local & national governments, and academic community.
As a volunteer led organization, expect to ride on the linkages created to facilitate peace building, promote freedom from oppression and violence as well as effective, open and accountable institutions for prosperous societies.
Thank you and God bless our humanitarian efforts! Mr. Richard Kasu
