The Director for Community-Driven Development (CDD) programs of Advocates for Community Alternatives (ACA), Nana Ama Nketia-Quaidoo (Mrs), has made a passionate appeal to ACA’s partner-district assemblies to be intentional about education and information sharing on the Facilitated Collective Action Process (FCAP) to their community members.

This, she believes, will ensure that the people are well informed about the implementation process of FCAP, also called “Oman yie die.”

Nana Ama Nketia-Quaidoo (Mrs) made this call during her presentation at the District Planning Coordinating Unit meeting of the Atiwa West District Assembly in the Eastern region of Ghana on Thursday April 18, 2024.

Mrs. Nketia-Quaidoo noted that although the communities have embraced and begun the FCAP activities, the district assemblies should make conscious efforts to periodically communicate and share updates on the partnership with their people as part of accountability and transparency.

She also pointed out that FCAP does not just leave communities with development trajectory but also a powerful tool that is effective for development of medium-term development plans for district Assemblies in Ghana.

Mr. Divine Seth Nuworbor, the Acting Coordinating Director for the Atiwa West District Assembly emphasized the assembly’s readiness to enhance the collaboration with ACA towards the successful implementation of FCAP in the district.

Also in the meeting were other staff of ACA namely, Elfried Dossavi-Messy, Coordinator for M&E and Communication; Godfred Osei Nimako, the Project Manager and Richard Kofi Boahen, the Communication officer.

On the side of the district assembly were the district development planning officer, the physical planning officer and a host of others.
