GRID and NEA have partnered together for 25 years. Together we enable sustainable development in marginalized Ghanaian communities.
GRID – Ghana Rural Integrated Development – is a North American Christian charitable organization that enables sustainable community development in Ghana. We are a registered charitable organization in Canada and a 501(c)(3) charity in the USA.
NEA – Northern Empowerment Association – is a Ghanaian Christian development organization that lives with and works among Ghana’s poor to alleviate poverty and transform communities.
Our mission is to assist poor communities to meet their basic needs in a sustainable manner.
Our motivation is Jesus Christ’s love. As Christians we feel that it is our responsibility to reflect the love of Jesus Christ by being a blessing to people in great need.
