Social Enterprise Ghana begins advocacy for impact investing policy

Social Enterprise Ghana with funding from BUSAC, DANIDA and USAID has begun advocacy to ensure policymakers and government pass and adopt the social enterprise and impact investing policy.

According to Edwin Zu-Cudjoe, the Executive Director of Social Enterprise Ghana, the policy will enable the over 28,000 social enterprises operating in the country to be recognised as such and be able to register as social enterprises with the Registrar General’s Department.

“This policy is aimed at driving impact investment to social enterprises and I urge government to set up a Social Enterprise Development Fund to develop the social enterprise ecosystem and enable social enterprises as partners with government in the provision of social good and services,” he said.
