Hunger Project develops citizens’ charter for five districts in Eastern Region

The Hunger Project-Ghana, in partnership with The Hunger Project-Germany and five districts in the Eastern Region, have developed a citizens’ charter to provide a ready reference for assemblies and citizens to improve the efficiency of service delivery.
The citizens’ charter shows major service delivery and the time frame set for providing some important services to the people, as well as the quality and standard parameters for the delivery of services as provided by national and international best practices in line with the Sustainable Development Goals.

Mr Samuel E, Afrane, Country Director of The Hunger Project-Ghana, explained this at a handing over ceremony of the citizens’ charter to the districts in Somanya in the Yilo Krobo Municipality.

A “citizen’s charter” is a document of commitments made by an organization to citizens or groups in respect of the services or schemes being provided to them or to be provided to them.
The beneficiary epicenters and districts included Baware Epicenter in the Okere district, Konkone Epicenter in the Upper Manya Krobo District, Dominase Epicenter in the Fanteakwa district,
Apau-Wawase Epicenter in the Ayensuano district, and Akpo Akpamu in the Vito Krobo Municipality. Mr Afrane urged district members to be patriotic, study, implement, and roll out the citizens’ charter for real changes that promote community development.
Mr Solomon Amoakwa, Governance Project Coordinator of The Hunger Project — Ghana, mentioned that “Strengthening sub-district institutions for community-led public services in Ghana,” aimed to address poor access to public services, particularly in rural communities, which had a negative impact on economic productivity
and people’s well-being.

The project has trained the media, district chief executives, community representatives, and about 300 members of unit committees, area councils, and epicenter committees.
The Hunger Project is a non-governmental organization that implements programmes to improve rural people’s living standards
in terms of health, nutrition, education, and livelihood empowerment.

Mr Eric Tetteh, Vito Krobo Municipal Chief Executive, called on assembly staff and members of the area to comply with perform
their duties as the citizens’ charter required of them.

“Going according to the charter will enable the Yilo Krobo Municipal Assembly to meet the target of the 2023 District Performance Assessment Tool,” he said.
