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 and waste management, food security and livelihoods, agropastoralism, nutrition, climate change and environmental management as well as inclusive growth and development.

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.
