About Development Solutions Center
Development Solutions Centre (DSC) is a company limited by guarantee, registered under the Ghana Companies Code 1963 (Act 179) with registration number G. 12,232. The centre has been established to support the developmental efforts of donor organisations within West Africa. Particularly, donor and international NGOs that are becoming increasingly worried and frustrated with the low capacity of indigenous non-profit, non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and community based organisations (CBOs). DSC is to assure that existing donor support is harnessed to focus on empowering West Africans to utilize thier existing resources to alleviate poverty and establish sustainable programs, projects and business entities within thier communities. This is to be done through a holistic and sustainable approach to development.
To see local development organisations comfortably engaging their counterparts from developed countries and donors alike on an equal footing in assuring holistic development of Africa, and all concerned fully aware that DSC made it possible.
To empower communities, grassroots organisations and individuals through the provision of quality services, to enable them take their destiny in their own hands and become caring, competent, responsible partners who value development as a lifelong process.
DSC currently operates in Ghana and Togo. In Ghana, besides the Accra office, we are active in the Volta, Eastern, Greater Accra, Upper West, Brong Ahafo and Western Regions. Additionally, we have sub-offices in Takoradi (Inchaban), Bole (Northern Region) and Penyi (Volta Region).
DSC has groups mobilized in two regions(Western and Volta) and have had varying levels of interaction with partners in the other three regions geared towards implementing key projects that would empower various community members and at the same time keep the family units together.
