The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) with funding from the Governments of Denmark, Norway and Australia are seeking proposals from non-governmental organizations (NGOs) operating in Northern Ghana to support efforts in addressing the drivers of radicalization leading to violent extremism. 

The objective of this Call for Proposals is to identify NGOs to support the implementation of activities for enhancing socio-economic livelihood of targeted communities for women and youth in an effort to address the drivers of violent extremism in the Wa East (Buffiama), Sissala East district (Pido), Bole district (Nsunia) and Kasena-Nankana Municipality (Manyoro) Northern part of Ghana.

In today's increasingly interconnected world, the quest for sustainable peace and stability has become more critical than ever. Across the globe, communities grapple with the multifaceted challenges posed by violent extremism. Recognizing the urgency to address this pressing issue, efforts are underway to empower communities through alternative livelihoods as one of the strategic tools in reducing vulnerabilities to violent extremism.
