CHOICE Ghana is a non-governmental organisation founded by several smaller civil society groups in East Gonja District in 2005. CHOICE Ghana is part of the East Gonja Civil Society Association (EGOCSA), a network of CSOs in the district. The organisation considers the ability to have choices in life, despite a poor or otherwise marginalised background, to be basic for human needs. It also sees education as the most important way to sustainable human development and works actively to achieve quality education in East Gonja. The aim is to transform East Gonja District from one of the poorest in the country to a model district for the rest of Ghana.
