Introduction

GACL’s approach to corporate social responsibility stems from the need to give back to society and thereby help with the country’s developmental agenda. We have made substantial contributions in local communities where our airports are located, namely Accra, Kumasi, Sunyani and Tamale. Our corporate social responsibility is focused on health, education and the environment.

Renovation of ward “E” – Accra Psychiatric Hospital

The decision to support Accra Psychiatric Hospital in Ghana was informed by the increased incidence of loitering by the mentally - ill around the airport. GACL believes that while preventing the mentally challenged from interfering in our operations, it was necessary to contribute our quota towards their rehabilitation and eventual absorption into society.

The rehabilitation works at the hospital included the rehabilitation of the dormitory, repair of broken roof, painting of the walls, repair of drainages system and the refurbishment of the nurses’ station among others.

Renovation Of Dormitory Block At Kumasi Orphanage.

GACL has renovated the dormitory block of the Kumasi Orphanage located at Aboabo, about 3mins drive from the Kumasi Airport. It was established in 1965 by the Government of Ghana, under the Department of Social Welfare.

The orphanage was established to provide care for the under-privileged children in society by offering them shelter, food, clothing, medical care and education.

The orphanage currently has a population of one hundred and fifteen (115) children with ages ranging from one week to twenty – nine years. It is funded by the Government of Ghana with support from benevolent individuals and institutions.

In spite of the numerous challenges that the home faces, it has managed to raise well-disciplined “products” that have been integrated into society and are contributing meaningfully to national development.
