On January 27, community members gathered with village chiefs, national, and international dignitaries for a ribbon-cutting at the Nutrition Rehabilitation Center in Nkwanta South District. The center is the first of its kind for the region and for Ghana, and will play a critical role in planned prevention of malnourishment for children under the age of five. USAID Ghana's Deputy Mission Director Andy Karas called it, “a hub of hope.”

One of Ghana’s most paramount constraints to economic growth is unreliable and inadequate supply of electric power, with only 2,450 MW of installed generation capacity to serve a population of 25 million. The Government of Ghana (GOG) has committed to increase the total installed power generation capacity to 5,000 MW by 2016, including 10 percent from renewable sources. As part of this effort, independent power producers have created 546 mega-watts (MW) of generation capacity, and another private producer is nearing financial close and will ultimately produce 348 MW.
