The Centre for Active Learning and Integrated Development (CALID) is a Non-Governmental, Non-profit and Non-Partisan organisation, committed to the promotion of quality life for the poor & marginalized in society particularly women and children. The head office is based in Tamale, the capital city of the Northern Region of Ghana with a sub office in Bole.
CALID is registered with the Registrar General’s Department with registration number: CG203202015 and with the Department of Social Welfare with registration number: DSW 3053.
CALID was formed in April, 2001 by a group of Community Development Workers formerly with ActionAid Ghana (AAG). The Northern Region is known to have been marginalised over the years resulting in rampant poverty, illiteracy and general ignorance. An urgent need to turn around the situation through strategic programmes and activities in order to reduce the vices, accounted for the formation of CALID.
