Acknowledgements

We would like to thank Sulley S. Kamara of ORIENT for facilitating the review of CEDEP and the environmental scan; USAID for providing us with the services of Price Waterhouse Coopers to assist in the strategic process of CEDEP; Price Waterhouse Coopers for their expertise and guidance throughout the process of review; and all CEDEP staff members who spent countless hours in meetings defining, redefining and clarifying CEDEP’s mission, vision, values, and objectives.

Foreword

The Centre for the Development of People is a mature and vibrant non-governmental organisation (NGO) with 15 years experience of working with people at grassroots level. Established in 1983, CEDEP has grown to become one of the major service NGOs in Ghana, respected for its capacity to carry out large and small-scale development programmes reliably and effectively.

In November 1997, the organisation embarked on a participatory strategic planning process, beginning with a review of its work, the development milieu and trends in Ghana. This was facilitated by Mr. Sulley Kumara of ORIENT, Sierra Leone. With the support of USAID, Price Waterhouse Coopers provided their expertise and guidance to the CEDEP staff for the forward planning and the restructuring required to achieve our vision, mission and strategic objectives.

The major outcome of this process is collated into this handbook to be shared with others, but more importantly to guide management and staff over the strategic period.

Despite the support of Mr. Kamara and Price Waterhouse Coopers, there are bound to be some shortcomings in our strategic plan and this handbook. We at CEDEP are entirely responsible for these. Please do not hesitate to point them out to us. Thank you for taking an interest in CEDEP.

But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams under your feet;
tread softly, for you tread on my dreams.

CEDEP MISSION, VISION & VALUES

 

"If you don’t know where you are going, no road will take you there."

 

 

 

 

 

"Where there is not vision, the people perish."

OLD TESTAMENT, Proverbs, XXIX, 18

 

Introduction

Our mission, vision, values, objectives and programmes set out in this handbook were deduced from our analysis of our past and the current trends in Ghana and the world as a whole. We are acknowledging the shift to a neo-liberal economic-political model that accounts for the current globalisation process, which is also propelled by new information technologies. In this globalisation all attention is being given to the private sector with the intention of shrinking the roles, responsibilities and control of the state. While there can be advantages in limiting the power of the state, the outcome is the concentration of power in the hands of fewer and fewer multi-national corporations, and the worsening conditions of ordinary people, especially the poor, women and children.

From these trends we felt it imperative to improve the circumstances and prospects of the vulnerable and marginalized people who are unable to realise their potentials or to achieve their full rights in society. Additionally, we thought it necessary to act on the issues that are detrimental to the well being of society as a whole.

To achieve these goals, we deem it necessary to create alliances with the primary actors whose policies and actions often impact negatively on the vulnerable. In this era of globalisation and the information super highway, we recognise that a primary strategy for success in many areas, including sustainable development, is to join forces with other organisations and institutions for greater impact.

Programme Direction

We have chosen to continue with gender and development activities because gender inequity, especially the second-class position of women in our society, is entrenched. We hope to team up with others on issues such as women’s reproductive rights, entrepreneurial development and participation in decision-making process at all levels, with particular emphasis on women's access to information, education and reproductive health services.

The rapid spread of HIV/AIDS and its destructive impact on the productive regiment of our population makes it imperative that we continue our partnership with Save the Children Fund (SCF-UK), the Ministry of Health and other Ghanaian NGOs in reproductive health areas.

The high youth unemployment in the country does not augur well for stability and now is the time for action. Over the years, we have engaged with in-school and out-of-school youth in discussions on pertinent development issues. In the next five years, we intend to collaborate with Youth in Action, a network of youth groups in Kumasi, to undertake projects with an emphasis on entrepreneurial development.

From our analysis, one factor responsible for the decline of many communities, especially those in rural areas, is weak or poor leadership. With the decentralisation of government putting Unit Committees in place at the community level, there is the likelihood for conflict with traditional leaders, unless the two institutions work closely together. In this vein, we intend to work with the chieftancy institution at all levels on the need for reforms within that institution. We also intend to provide training to chiefs, "Asafo" or youth groups, and Unit Committees on a pilot basis in a few selected paramouncies. This training will be in strategic and project planning, project execution and management, monitoring and evaluation.

Our review also brought home to us that we have progressed from being project-driven to being a full-fledged organisation with on-going costs that exceed what projects accommodated. This calls for a broadening of our funding base beyond grants and what we earn from consultancy services. For this reason, we have extended our fee-for-service scheme to include our Publication and Documentation Unit and the newly created computer-based Community Learning Centre. Our plans also include the establishment of a fund-raising and marketing unit, as well as a unit that will go into long-term ventures and partnerships.

These are our dreams for the next five years. We invite you to share them with us and help us achieve them in whatever way you can for a better Ghana and the global village.
