URBANET is a social impact organisation committed to the principles of social justice and human rights, especially for the poor and vulnerable segments of society in Northern Ghana. URBANET is driven by the passion to explore the potentials and opportunities available in local communities to build community resilience based on available resources and indigenous knowledge systems.

Since its establishment in 2003, URBANET has been working to address the social and economic vulnerabilities of marginalised groups of people, such as women, smallholders, unemployed young people, and people living with disabilities, by building their agencies and capacities for income-generating activities.
