Green Village Plan Development's enterprise mission is to provide technical, physical, educational, managerial and financial means to help create a sustainable and healthy future for farmers, women and children of rural communities, for the current and future generations to gain control over their resources, to learn the ability to develop their own land's potential and to open this potential to external markets
Green Village Plan Development is a non-governmental, non-religious and non-political organization finding measures for sustainability in rural African communities. A young and passionate organization with its roots in Ghana, our team is made up of professionals from various backgrounds and nationalities, who share the vision of helping rural communities to develop and to gain control of their own resources.We operate in partnership with our sister NGOs in Sweden and Denmark.
Our main objective is to improve the living conditions of rural area populations, one of the main focuses of the UN’s Millennium Development Goals. We are currently present in Ghana and starting up in Sierra Leone, with a long term ambition to reach rural communities all over Africa.
Ghana is a developing country rich in natural resources that is gradually following measures to become a fully developed nation. However on this journey, the country's rural communities have been left behind and prevented from having equal rights with the cities. The poorest of the country's population live in rural areas, where most live from farming. A yearly income for rural farmers can be around 500 dollars and depends heavily on harvests and man power. These regions are also subject to diseases such as malaria, tuberculosis and HIV/AIDS, that cause not only physical, but also economical loss. Loans are generally expensive in Ghana and microloans are not always an option in rural areas.
Aiming at patching the gap between the living standards of rural communities and those of cities, Green Village Plan Development works to create a sustainable and healthy future for generations of farmers, women and children in rural communities. To achieve this goal, GVPD is made out of two subdivisions, Green Village Agriculture Development (GVAD) and Green Village Social & Health Development (GVSHD).
Green Village in Denmark and Dreamverkstad(Green Village Plan Dev) in Sweden are our offices in the Scandinavia to assist and support our activities all over africa. Their works are initiated and conducted in-house or in cooperation with us.
