About Us

Wacam is a premier community based human rights and environmental mining advocacy NGO in Ghana with a community-based focus. Formed in 1998, Wacam has worked to respond to the social, environmental and economic problems that had resulted from the increased mining investment of the third gold rush. Our work is focused on community mobilisation, organisation and rights-based education for empowerment, at the local, national, sub regional and international levels to influence practices changes. With a modest beginning of work in eight communities in one region, Wacam is now working in over ninety mining affected communities in Ghana. Wacam has worked to share its experiences with CSOs, community groups and intellectuals worldwide. Our belief in the rule of law led to the use of court room litigation, representation and negotiations for affected communities. Wacam has made a number of submissions to regulators as our contribution for policy change and have served on a number of organisations including the Extractive Industry Transparency Initiative (EITI) at the national and international levels.
