Our Cause:

The establishment of Nongre craft and culture came about after the realization that many northern Ghanaian school children after being enrolled in school dropout because their parents are not able to fund for their educational needs. Most of the areas affected are poverty stricken and deprived basket weaving communities in northern Ghana, whose main source of livelihood is farming. They engage in basket weaving during the dry season, which is a source of income generation and a way of keeping a subsistence livelihood.

The overall aim for this NGO is to bring about development and positive social change to the people and the communities where we operate.e.g. Basket weaving communities, etc. We understand that, in the area of human development for rural communities in sub-Sahara Africa, we trust that the focus areas should be placed on education, cultural awareness, climate compensation, social innovation, women and youth empowerment through self-create initiatives, which are all paramount to achieving some of the developmental goals in rural Africa.
