DANIDA cuts 26 percent donor funding to GDCA

The Ghana Developing Communities Association (GDCA) has suspended its  operation in some of its project implementation districts in the Northern Region.

This is as a result of a reduction of 26 percent of its budget by its main donor partner Danish International Development Agency (DANIDA).

Speaking at a quarterly media review, Executive Secretary of GDCA, Alhaji Abdel-Rahman Osman revealed that the sudden emergence is as a result of a change in government and policies in  Denmark.

The Empowerment for Life media review is a quarterly event geared towards assessing progress of collaboration between the media and the programme for mutual benefit.

GDCA which used to operate in six districts in the Northern Region has already suspended operations in the East Gonja and Kumbungu districts.

This has also affected administrative structures in the organization. But Alhaji Osman is however optimistic of ensuring the core mandate of the organization is still pursued.
