Corporate Social Responsibility

The Volta River Authority has a long history and tradition of engagement in corporate social investment. Our community investment initiatives help build capacity and stimulate economic development. Our right to exist depends on our responsiveness to the external environment. We therefore believe that taking an active interest in the well-being of our communities, gives us a number of long-term benefits which include community support, loyalty, and goodwill.

We aim at having a positive impact on the people, culture and communities in which we operate, and to contribute to the growth and development of the economy. We are sensitive to our image and strive on a continuing basis to meet our commitments to our customers, the business community and communities in which our operations are integrated.

Community Development Programme
To continually provide support for communities, the Authority has a Community Development Programme (CDP) under which communities also benefit from:

  • Youth Training Programme
  • Education
  • Income Generating Activities
  • Social Infrastructure
  • Support for cultural activities

The Groups of communities that benefit from the CDP are host, impacted and communities in the Lower Volta Basin.
