The Upper West Region of Ghana has vast arable land and a short rainy season for farming. This remote region bordering Burkina Faso has historically not been prioritized for development and aid programs. The region stands out for its hospitality, and the hard work that comes with farming and taking care of families.
Established in 2011, Vibrant Village in Ghana has worked and supported communities in the Upper West Region of Ghana. Lenny Baer, our program director, is based in the village of Fielmuo with staff from local communities. Our programs work across 17 neighboring communities, serving a total population of around 20,000 people. We engage local leaders, educators, women’s groups, and other village residents in community-based projects to improve the quality of education, hygiene, sanitation, and access to clean water
