Extra Mile West Africa was established in English speaking, Ghana, West Africa in 1998 as a non government, community development organization. We are a non-profit, non-governmental organization registered with the Department of Social Welfare; registration # D.S.W./1087.
In 2006 Extra Mile West Africa began expanding its community development mandate to include programs aimed at poverty reduction and food security issues in rural Ghana. Our approach to improving community and family welfare is achieved through the implementation of agricultural development programs that upscale sector subsistence activities into profitable business ventures. By introducing a business orientation into our development programs, significant contribution is made to the livelihoods of actors and in turn opens opportunity for their particular industry to be positioned at the national level as a viable business activity worth supporting.
Our NGO also supports rural schools and youth education programs with educational tools and materials.
To facilitate our objectives EMWA generates private and business sector collaboration and contribution for all rural development projects.
