‘Restoration Abuadi’ is a Community Based Organisation (CBO) made up of volunteers from the Abuadi Community near Ho in Ghana. The CBO started in 2008 and is now working closely with past volunteers and friends to facilitate community projects to improve the lives of people who live in Abuadi.
From 2008-2010 a number of Volunteers went to Ghana through an international NGO (Non Governmental Organisation) which passed them on to another NGO in Ghana, which then finally placed them in Abuadi. While they there, they worked closely with the Abuadi CBO (Community Based Organisation) on projects started by previous volunteers. Unfortunately time limited on any overseas visit and the volunteers regreted not being able to follow them through. However, as a result this website was started as a means of ongoing support and communication.
All people working on these projects firmly believe in eliminating intermediaries and empowering the Abuadi community to take control of their own destiny. Another reason for creating this site is to put Abuadi on the Ghanaian tourist map and attract traveling guests to experience authentic village life in beautiful landscapes.
