STRENGTHENING DEMOCRACY

As Ghana progresses in consolidating its democratic gains and delivering on the promise of prosperity, we all have a role to play in safeguarding our freedoms and ensuring open, transparent governance. An active citizenry is critical to providing a check on any government because governments do particularly poorly in policing themselves. We cannot expect foreign taxpayers to bear this responsibility. Giving back in this area is very strongly advised.

For a fledging democratic system to succeed, we need citizens who understand the procedures, believe in democratic rules and get personally involved.

President of Ghana (2002-2010)

 OUR DEMOCRACY SCORECARD 

Generally, supporting governance and democracy has not attracted a lot of attention in Ghana’s Philanthropy Space™.  Much of the giving by Our Commonwealth of Goodwill™ has focused on supporting media freedom. This is crucial and Aistiphi encourages further support for media freedom and independence. Aistiphi also encourages expanded support for areas that promote freedom, democracy, accountability, transparency and human rights.

Nothing is more shameful for a people than a government imposing itself on the will of the people. Genuine electoral processes conducted without fear or intimidation…reassures the people that their will has prevailed.

Jerry Rawlings

President of Ghana (1993-2001)
