ISRD started as a Youth Club in the Wa West District in the year 2013. Under the name 'Green Youth Club', it undertook activities including tree planting, anti-bush burning campaigns and youth leadership workshops. Its scope of activities was later widened to include VSLA training for women groups and facilitating linkages for access to tractor services and inputs for farmer groups. Other activities include organizing community education forums on personal/environmental hygiene, Girl Child Education, and Adolescent Sexual and Reproductive Health Rights. In 2017 Green Youth Club got registered as a not-for-profit organization with the name INNOVATIONS FOR SUSTAINABLE RURAL DEVELOPMENT - ISRD. Our vision is to "To provide Technology-Based solutions, create opportunities and positively transform society" Innovations for Sustainable Rural Development (ISRD), as an NGO, seeks to provide sustainable solutions to rural development challenges using results-based approaches and Information Technology. These approaches are implemented through a collaborative working relation with relevant government institutions, LNGOs, INGOs, private firms and local communities (direct/indirect beneficiaries) in the Upper West Region and beyond.
