Help Simli AiD to build a Poverty-free society which enables

all deprived citizens in Northern Region of Ghana enjoy good livelihood with

Equal Rights and Social Justice


Simli AiD was established in 2003  to empower the most marginalized people in Northern region of Ghana to be able to eradicate poverty through education about rights and the law, assisting poor citizens to assert their rights and developing their capacity to mobilize themselves for change. One main strategy is the use of literacy tool (REFLECT) that seeks to allow citizens to determine their own learning and develop actions for poverty reduction. The principal strategy is working with communities to determine their development needs according to their own terms.

The organisation currently operates in 9 districts of the Northern region (Tolon, Kumbungu, Karaga, Gusheigu, Zabzugu, Tatale, Savelugu, Nanton and Yendi districts)


Water, Sanitation and Hygiene

We are working with rural communities to promote access to safe drinking water and sanitation as a way of ensuring good health for the population. The current strategy is working to develop local capacity to address water and sanitation needs in their communities.

Ending Early and Forced Girl Marriage

We are instrumental in challenging the social and traditional assumptions about early marriage for girls, it has been conducting advocacy, education and awareness raising on the need to encourage girls-child education and to allow them to stay until maturity.

Food Security and Safe Environment

We are implementing a project to address the food insecurity situation in the Tolon and Kumbungu districts of the Northern region. The project is working with farmers to set up drip irrigation schemes in communities to facilitate dry season farming by mainly women.

Vocational and Enterprise Development

We are making vocational skills training available to the Youth (especially girls) to enable them secure their own jobs and work towards a dignified living for themselves.  It also provides training in business  management skills to beneficiaries . 

Agricultural Para-Extension Scheme

Agriculture is recorgnized as the main livelihoods of the people in the northern region. This schemeis training community-based Para-Extensionist to assist in providing community level agricultural extension support to local farmers as a complement to Government efforts, which is inadequate. 

Gender Mainstreaming

Witchcraft cosmology has created an extensive social space for the discussion of  wider social relations. We are committed to the  promotion of human rights and social justice, assisting poor people to assert their rights and access justice and developing the capacity of marginalized people to mobilize themselves for change.
