Rural Women Development and Health Initiative (RUWDHI) is a community based non-governmental organization (NGO) based in Cape Coast, Ghana (West Africa). The organization was started by Miss Suzzy Philips and Mr. Nii Boye Evans in 2002 and officially became an NGO in 2007. RUWDHI is a non-partisan, non-governmental, and non-profit organization. The organization was founded to improve the social-economic and well-being of marginalized people, especially women and children who live in rural Ghana. RUWDHI is registered with the Registrar Generals Department of Ghana (GA-24,129) and the Ministry of Social Welfare and Employment of Ghana (Registration Number DSW/3901). The organization is also an affiliate member of the Association of Non-Governmental Organizations in Central Region (ANCER), the Non Formal Education Division of the Ministry of Education, and the Center for International Education of the University of Cape Coast. HOW THEY WORK They believe that there are capable people in the local communities who have the potential to create a better life for themselves, but they need support and resources. In order to ensure sustainable development, RUWDHI works with various local leaders to understand the wants and needs of each community. Through their Volunteer Service Corps, we are able to connect the needs of the community and the skills of our volunteers.  VISION RUWDHI was created to empower the rural, marginalized populations of women and children in rural Ghana by working to improve their economic and political standing and health through the provision of psychological, educational, social and economic support systems.
