Woezor! Welcome to Atorkor Development Foundation
Welcome, or “Woezor” as we say in Atorkor, to our website. The Atorkor Development Foundation (ADF) is a non-profit development organisation based in Ghana and the UK. In addition it has representatives in USA and Germany. ADF was established in 2001 to help overcome poverty in Atorkor, a fishing village in the Volta Region of Southern Ghana.
ADF’s vision is to transform Atorkor from a poor and under-developed village into a self-sustaining community with basic amenities – jobs, a well-equipped Medical Centre, clean drinking water, well-equipped schools and vocational centre, electricity and affordable communication facilities for all. We hope you find our site informative and useful – please take the time to register with the site and also for our newsletter. This way we can keep you up to date with developments and be sure to check out our Get Involved to see how you can help the people of Atorkor. Akpe! (Thank you)
