My organization is an Agency of the Metropolitan Assembly and is responsible for implementation of development projects and programmes in the oldest part of the city of Accra known as Old Accra or Ga mashie. Currently we are engaged in the implementation of the Habitat Participatory Slum Upgrading Programme (PSUP). My organization was set up in 2006 and has since engaged other development partners such as Global Communities, Cities Alliance, Amnesty International, UNESCO among others. Under the PSUP, we have been able to improve the community through an alley paving project through which we have been able to create, improve and secure open spaces or the benefit of the community. We have also provided household toilets for fifty households as well as creating a micro credit scheme for petty traders and small scale entrepreneurs in the informal sector.
