Freeworld International (FI) is a non-governmental organisation based in Ejisu in the Ashanti Region of Ghana and was formed to fight against diseases, poverty, illiteracy and social injustice.

Presence in: Ghana
Focus: Children's Rights, Education, Gender-based violence, Governance, Accountability & Transparency, Health, Labor & Employment, Livelihoods

FI was established by a group of people with the vision of seeing Ghana and the world at large free from diseases, poverty, illiteracy and social injustice.

Over the last 10 years, Freeworld has been working relentlessly to bring about qualitative behavioural change and impacted the lives of over one million people. The organisation’s bottom-up approach to inclusive development has changed the lives of many and has led to sustainable development. Our approaches include the following:

  • An understanding of community needs on the ground and informed perspective that offers practical project possibilities
  • Utilize a community-based approach, focusing on solutions proposed directly by the community and addressing challenges faced by the community at large. Further, the project will evolve through continuous engagement with the community
  • Offer a full spectrum of livelihood solutions such as childhood, vocational, and technical training, agricultural expertise, financial literacy, business acumen, and other enterprise development skills combined with community engagement.
  • Plan to integrate the learning from other complementary projects, focus on geographies where demand and need are greatest, and implement where there is no duplication with other ongoing projects
  • Seek to provide continuous vocational and enterprise development support, as opposed to short-term, intermittent training with limited follow-through.

Our vision:

A world in which people are free from diseases, poverty, illiteracy, social injustice and other social challenges.
