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. We curently working towards raising our headquarters, providing research and data analysis training to our staff, and awarding an annual post-secondary school scholarship as community outreach. Though we do not solicit contributions from the general public, if you are a friend of the Nangodi Institute and would like to speak with us about these efforts, please visit our contact page and reach out. We love hearing from friends new and old. M'puuhiya!
