Robert Bosch Foundation supports the TEERE Local Government Forum (TLGF) in Ghana

The TEERE Local Government Forum (TLGF) has received approval from the Robert Bosch Foundation. After a relationship that began with a letter of intent to work with us in 2015 and some meetings in Ghana and Germany between TEERE and the Foundations' staff, TEERE got approval for its pilot project in the Upper East region of Ghana. An amount of €18,050 was approved for the pilot. The funding will provide for a district and regional TLGF in Bongo and Bolgatanga. Depending on the outcome of the project, the Foundation could extend the support to enable TEERE implement the project across the entire country in 3-5 years.

The project will be implemented between April and October 2016. At the district level TLGF, all stakeholders in local government will be invited to a district level forum. The stakeholders will include mostly those that have been traditionally excluded from local government such as traditional political and religious authorities, political parties, women, the media, the physically challenged as well as those constitutionally recognised. Prior to this district level forum, Teere staff will visit every community in the Bongo district to sensitise people about the TLGF to ensure full participation.

After the district forum, a regional forum will be organised to share experiences and best practices in local governance. Some reviews and evaluation will be done internally and by independent monitors. The results will be presented to the TEERE Board and the Foundation.

TEERE Board and management are very grateful to the Bosch foundation. We are pleased to be associated with such an experienced organisation. We are looking forward to a long lasting working relation with Bosch.
