About our decision making structure

Rise Up Ghana Development Collective (RUDC) is exactly that, a collective. We lack the traditional hierarchal structure most organizations have.  With few exceptions, we decide things horizontally.  Participants gain decision-making power within the organization based on how long they’ve been working with us.  For a full detailed outline of our bylaws, please see

What this means is we are open to anyone who wants to loan a helping hand, and in doing so, the helper becomes as big a part of RUDC as anyone else.

This is a great opportunity for anyone wanting to dive into a development project in Ghana. We offer a locally based and small organization looking to rise to the top.

We’ve provided our Progress Reports, Upcoming Goals and Projects, and miscellaneous Academic Research on our website. Feel free to browse through the thicker paperwork that RUDC has published.

If your interested in helping on anything from volunteering time to Wli Todzi as a farmer or teacher, to taking a serious leadership role in RUDC, please see below:

Getting involved:

Rise Up Development Collective is a decentralized network of people working in many places in the United States and abroad to fundraise for this project and do the work to make our dream a reality.  If you’re interested in getting involved with the project in your place of residence, or if you are travelling in Ghana and are interested in interning in Wli Todzi, please contact us at and we will get back to you within three business days.  Thank you for your interest!

We believe anyone can contribute to our project and we look forward to hearing from future RUDC crew members! If you have further questions, please contact us.
