Support for rural communities
With the program “Support for Rural Communities”, HITA e.V. wants to directly help the people and their communities that need support the most. The help can be direct, e.g. collecting toys for a kindergarten, providing school bags for schoolgirls in one of the poorest regions of Ghana, or indirect, in that HITA e.V. supports a local hospital in word and deed. The nonprofit decided to focus on communities in this very rural district in the Volta Region after its board member Thomas Erkert was appointed Development Chief in Adakulu District in 2019. The “appointment as king” helps HITA e.V. a lot to get an immediate access into the communities.
