IT ALL STARTED IN THE EIGHTIES
Tumakavi Development Association started in 1983 in Moglaa, a rural community in the Savelugu municipality of northern region, Ghana.
The formation of the Tumakavi women’s group became necessary as a result of drought in 1983. The severity of the drought, which led to food scarcity, high cost of food and acute water shortage greatly impacted negatively on communities and families. Nutrition and hygiene, a basic ingredient for health and wellbeing, was harshly compromised.
