ANOPA is an international sports project which is based upon the agreement about the cooperation and the development of friendship between the Republic of Ghana and the state of North Rhine-Westphalia / Germany. The project is registered as an NGO at the Registrar General's Department, Ghana and based in Cape Coast. ANOPA uses sports as an instrument for individual development, promotion of gender equity, peace building and conflict resolution, communication as well as social mobilization and economic development in Ghana especially in the Central Region.
It is based on the concept of sports for development – sport is not just an end in itself, but also an effective tool to help improve the lifes of children, families and communities.
ANOPA builds on the enthusiasm of young people for sports and encourages them to take a serious look at socially relevant issues. It equally aims at the development of structures and networks within the sport community in the country particularly in the Central Region.
