CLIP HISTORY, MISSION & VISION

Changing Lives in Innovative Partnerships (CLIP) started as a rural development programme with the aim to increase self-help capacity and improved living conditions for the populations in rural communities of Yendi, Gushegu and Karaga districts in the Northern Region of Ghana. CLIP was established as a package to promote children’s education, especially girls and provide livelihoods support to families in the Northern Region of Ghana.

 

Since then its main activities have been focused on water supply, hygiene & sanitation, food security and environmental management as well as micro-credit promotion.

VISION

A society free of hunger where local communities have sustainable skills and opportunities to improve their livelihoods 

 
MISSION

To empower people to influence and drive their own socio-economic development in a sustainable environment

 
PRINCIPLES OF CLIP

Three principles form the bedrock of the organization’s operational context and that have shaped its policies and programmes. 

  1. The need to promote attitudes, practices and behaviours that will empower communities to identify and prioritise their needs for social change as a means of addressing poverty in their communities.

  2. The need to promote actions that allow people - especially youth and women - to have sustainable skills and opportunities to improve their livelihoods. 

  3. Community led problem solving is the key to supporting communities in addressing their development. 

CLIP operates in the 3 northern regions in Karaga, Gushegu, Mion and Kumbungu, Savelugu, Tamale Metro, Sagnarigu, Central Gonja, Bawku Municipal, Pusiga District and Bawku West Districts 

ORGANISATION

CLIP was registered in 1997 with the Registrar General Department to operate as a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO). It is one of the affiliates of the Ghana Developing Communities Association (GDCA). As an independent registered organization, CLIP has its own management and staff and a governing board of directors known as the Technical Committee (TC) with defined governance practices.

Ownership and Governance: Technical Committee and Management Team

Through the quarterly meetings, the TC provides the general guidelines for implementation by the management team. 
Within the organization, there is a Management Committee (comprising the Programme Manager, Project Coordinators and Project Officers), that make decisions on day-to-day basis. Staff Monthly Meetings form the basis for information sharing, critical decision-making and evaluation of programs within the month.
