We are starting our second Book Sprints day in the city of Takoradi, Western Region of Ghana. The initiative funded by Care Denmark aims to document the Yensore Programme which is implemented by CARE Ghana in partnership with Civic Response, Kasa Initiative Ghana, United Civil Society Organisations for National Development (UCSOND) and WACAM, for the period 2014 to 2017. The 15 participants are writing to showcase the achievements and lessons learned during the programme.
The Yensore programme goal is to strengthen the respect, protection and fulfilment of rights of vulnerable community members affected by forestry and extractive industries. The key approaches used to achieve that goal include ‘Strategic partnerships’; CSO capacity strengthening; Community Empowerment; and Advocacy.
