Land Grabbing Research, Awareness and Prevention in Ghana’s Volta Region is a project of the Africa Faith and Justice Network (AFJN) funded by two Catholic religious congregations: The Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate and The Adorers of the Blood of Christ. The outstanding success of this project was in part made possible by our local partners: Fr. Miachael Ojagba, parish priest of St. Theresa Catholic Church in Nkwanta, the Catechists from the communities we visited, and the Paramount Chief of Trubo Traditional area, NanaTedibo Kowura Odamba II in collaboration with the community’s elders and members of Brewaniase landowners committee.
