The program in Ghana is today financially supported by the Eiffage Foundation and the Hermes Foundation, and a negotiation is ongoing for a financing from the partnership Eiffage Energie - GRIDCo. Since these sources cover only part of the expected costs of the program, the AVN-Ghana team is actively seeking, with the support of the team in France, other sources of finance to cover the annual budget and thus to be able to achieve the expected results.
Several contacts have been established with other development actors: NGOs, institutions, local and international organizations. With some of them there are good chances for establishing a partnership, with others a collaboration is not feasible, but it is nonetheless crucial to meet them for starting to create a local network of development actors, raising their awareness of the housing issue and of AVN’s solution.
Among others, the team has met the Department for Rural Housing, the Bolgatanga Municipal Assembly, the Ministry of the Environment, Science, Technology and Innovation, the Ministry for Water Resources, Works and Housing, the Environment Protection Agency, the Forestry Commission, the World Bank, the Peacecorps, the NGOs Housing the Masses, Youth Harvest Foundation, SINGh, Greenhouse Foundation, the international NGOs Habitat for Humanity, World Vision, Afrikids, Actionaid, Care Int.
