Recognition by the international community as a democratic and economic leader in Africa has made Ghana a magnet for tourists, but few see the wide-spread poverty that still exists off the beaten path. Catholic Relief Services Ghana works with the Ghanaian people to tackle poverty with a holistic approach including projects that improve child and maternal health; increase access to clean water and sanitation; scale up farm production; and enhance community level savings and lending.

CRS Ghana was established in 1958, just one year after Ghana gained independence. In our 50 plus years of service and as an official office of the International Catholic Relief and Development Agency of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, CRS Ghana has established itself as a trusted and respected partner in Ghana's development. Since 1987, in the spirit of CRS' mission to work with the poorest and most vulnerable populations, CRS Ghana has focused its efforts on the people living in the three most in-need regions: Northern, Upper West, and Upper East.
