Ark Development Organisation

Ark Development Organization formally AMPA Resource Organization is a Non-Governmental Organization which emerged through the efforts of four (4) young Ghanaians and one Canadian who saw the need to offer social service and health education to rural communities. This vision came about when they realized on their regular visit to rural communities that most rural folks needed information about health related and environment issues such as HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis, malaria, good hygiene and sanitation practices. The pioneers of Ark Development related the situation to high rate of illiteracy and poverty, hence the decision to render community development services to the rural folks.
