About the Project:

The main objective of the Decriminalizing Vagrancy Laws & Advocacy (DVLA) project is to create an enabling environment for vagrants to know, claim and exercise their rights and responsibilities in Ghana.

Specifically, the project will increase public awareness, monitoring and engagements on vagrancy laws. The project which is supported by the Open Society Initiative for West Africa (OSIWA)[i] is being implemented in twelve (12) Metropolitan, Municipal and District Assemblies (MMDAs) within Greater Accra, Central and the Western Regions of Ghana. In line with the objective of the project, CCF will undertake key activities in partnership and with participation of the Ministry of Local Government & Rural Development, Ghana Prisons Service, Media, Metropolitan, Municipal and District Assemblies (MMDAs), and other allied institutions in rights protection and justice delivery
