Our approach

Our approach

We believe that a vibrant civil society has the power to unlock transformational and lasting solutions to Ghana’s development challenges. Ghana has a strong tradition of civil society organisations working to better the lives of citizens. We believe that active citizens are the key to a better future for ALL Ghanaians.

The STAR Ghana Foundation works to increase the effectiveness of citizens and civil society to achieve an equitable, inclusive society. Our approach includes:

  • convening inclusive dialogue and collaboration;
  • catalysing active citizenship and collective action;
  • coordinating and supporting strategic partnerships;
  • facilitating continuous learning to fuel wider scale change.

We work with civil society to connect their interests with others, and help to ensure all voices are heard by decision makers, both local and national. Our work with government aims to create a state that is responsive and accountable to its citizens by promoting constructive dialogue at district, regional and national levels.

Our thematic areas

  • Gender equality and social inclusion
  • Inclusive governance and elections
  • Accountable service delivery and anticorruption
  • Media and the right to information
  • Active citizenship, civil society sustainability and philanthropy
