We are a small research institute located in the rural hinterlands of Ghana just a few kilometers from the Burkinabé frontier. Our ambition is to remain such. This does not mean we are not striving to improve. At present we administer a handful of small grants a year and are staffed by volunteers and piece meal workers. We are positioning the Nangodi Institute to one day be more competitive for external grants, keep a modest local staff fully employed, and use excess funds to conduct independent research on issues of understudied concerns for residents of the Ghana/Burkina Faso borderlands. If you would like to drop a donation into our blue bucket to help us realize this ambition, the link to do so is above. We use these funds to raise our headquarters, provide research and data analysis training to our staff, and award a post-secondary school scholarship as community outreach. M'puuhiya!
