Nator-Lonborizu
Rural Development Project

 

In 2013 KDI began developing a holistic Rural Development Plan for the Lonborizu village – a remote village in the extremely poor Upper West region of Ghana. The Plan outlined opportunities for investments in agriculture, health, education, environment, and infrastructure for the village and the surrounding area. It provided basic information, assessed needs, and identified strategic interventions, timelines, and milestones for each of the sectors within the next several years. Local indigenous knowledge was paired with regional expertise to ensure a grounded, innovative, and realistic plan. As part of phase one, KDI launched three pilot initiatives that catalyzed larger-scale projects and demonstrated some of the principles elaborated in the report. The plan served as a call-to-action for other potential investors and provided a basis for tracking progress in the village.
