Summary

A lot of the problems facing communities in Ghana result mostly from behavioral and attitudinal problems. These include indiscriminate disposal of waste and refuse, including food particles, poor sanitary and hygiene practices. The Research and Grant Institute of Ghana (REGIG) has successfully mobilized 50 students to undertake community engagement activities in four communities to change these behaviors. REGIG is scaling-up this initiative by mobilizing 1,000 students for community engagement.

Challenge

For several reasons such as lack of resources, tertiary students hardly undertake community engagement services to benefit their local communities in terms of promoting good community practices and behaviors for sustainable community development.

Solution

REGIG is mobilizing 1,000 students in 10 major tertiary institutions located across different part of Ghana to undertake community activities in selected communities in Ghana. The students to undertake inexpensive and cost-effective programs and behavioral interventions to enable community members change their behaviors and attitudes to promote community growth and development.

Long-Term Impact

REGIG will mobilize over 5000 students in the next 5 years to improve the lives of people and the health of the planet, end poverty, ensure quality education, promote gender equity, combat climate change, reduce inequalities, as well as hold governments accountable through community engagement. In doing so, REGIG will establish 10 community development, training and capacity building centers in some selected communities in Ghana dedicated to advancing students involvement in community.
