CARE began operations in Ghana in 1994. Since then the Accra office expanded to support programs in Togo and Benin under the umbrella of the CARE Gulf of Guinea country mission. In July 2010, CARE replaced the three-country mission with country offices in Ghana and Benin, the latter of which is also responsible for a small number of activities in Togo.
CARE Ghana’s projects are primarily implemented through partnerships with local and civil society organizations. This enables CARE to further engage with government and the private sector, work effectively in coalitions, and to have the greatest possible impact. CARE Ghana prioritizes the rural and vulnerable poor – women in particular – and organizes its work around health, governance, sustainable livelihoods and education.
We seek a world of hope, tolerance and social justice, where poverty has been overcome and people live in dignity and security.

CARE launched the Adaptation Learning Programme (ALP) for Africa in 2010. The programme is supported by the United Kingdom’s Department for International Development (DfID), The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Denmark, The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Finland and the Austrian Development Cooporation. Its overarching goal is to increase the capacity of vulnerable households in Sub-Saharan Africa to adapt to climate variability and change.
