Ashanti Akim Community Organisation is focused on alleviating poverty in Ghana’s Ashanti Akim region, which is located about four hours drive northwest of Accra, Ghana’s capital. AACO addresses poverty by focusing on projects in five key areas: education, agriculture, business, medicine and leadership development.

Ashanti Akim is divided into two districts, Ashanti Akim North and Ashanti Akim South, and is composed of 226 towns and villages, with a total population of 95,000. AACO works alongside people in both of these districts by seeking to help grow a vibrant community, in which the best and brightest are inspired to stay and contribute to the community’s growth instead of seeking jobs in larger cities, AACO’s largest project to date is the Jubilee Senior High School- Dampong, which opened in 2007 and is still expanding and developing. Many of AACO’s other projects link back to this school. All projects seek to address core causes of poverty and provide sustainable change for the people of Ashanti Akim.
