A key part of the mission of CLCD-Ghana is to support local government and non-governmental organizations with research activities that benefit children. We have partnered with several local organizations providing research-based services.
Become a Partner:
We partner with researchers and their organizations, and students to carry out research and implement programs on child survival and development in Ghana. We can serve as the managing body for implementing research projects and programs on early childhood development.
Take a look at how we work.
Ghana has tremendous need for investment in young children that require support from businesses. The partnership can include opportunities for employees to contribute their technical skills in supporting CLCD activities. We also have opportunities for businesses to contribute funding for research.
We are creating a consortium of schools and health facilities to support translation of research into practice and gather data to inform ECD policy. Members of our consortium receive access to information on early childhood development, support in database management, and collaboration with researchers.
We work with NGOs to strengthen their capacity in data management, data analysis, monitoring and evaluation, and translation of research studies into interventions. We are also interested in partnerships to design joint programs, implement research related projects and pursue innovative ideas.

PROMISE stands for Promote Maternal & Infant Survival Excellence; it was developed by Dr. Linda Amarkai Vanotoo in 2008 out of a desire to identify the reasons for the high still births and maternal deaths recorded in the Western Region of Ghana where she worked as the Regional Director of Health Services. Since then PROMISE has grown to embrace the whole spectrum of continuum of care from the unborn child through childhood to adolescence and then adulthood.
