Link Community Development (LCD) was established in 1999 and operated from its northern office in Bolgatanga until 2006 when the head office was relocated to Accra, keeping a programme office in the Bolgatanga. The organisation is linked to Link International but with some level of autonomy that allows for independent decisions and actions including the forging of partnerships with like-minded organisations.
