Originating from a point of crisis in the settlement of Old Fadama, the Ghana Federation of the Urban Poor (GHAFUP) was mobilized to negotiate solutions for 30,000 residents under threat of eviction. Working to find permanent solutions to urban poverty through the improvement of human settlements and shelter conditions, the Ghana Federation promotes partnerships between poor communities and city governments. A local NGO, People’s Dialogue on Human Settlements, provides technical assistance to the Federation.
