VRA Resettlement Trust Fund

In 1995, the VRA, in collaboration with the Ghana Government, represented by the then Ministry of Mines and Energy, established a special fund known as the VRA Resettlement Trust Fund. The mission of the Fund was to contribute to the improvement of the quality of life in the 52-resettlement townships. The fund was mandated to carry out socio-economic projects such as the provision of educational, social, health and sanitation facilities, reliable and potable water supply as well as the economic empowerment of the people through income generating activities and any other projects and needs that are approved by the Managing Trustees. VRA continues to contribute annually an equivalent of five hundred thousand United States Dollars (US$500,000) to the fund expected to alleviate poverty and improve employability of the people living in the 52-resettlement townships.
