1.0 WHAT WE STAND FOR
The La Mansaamo Kpee (LMK) or La Town Development Association is a community-based non-governmental Organization based is La in the Greater Accra Region of Ghana. The Association, with the support of major stakeholders, primarily, the indigenous people represented by the Clan Houses, continue to remain focused in the discharge of its self-elected mandate.
1.3 Vision and Mission
To create an enabling environment for human development and growth through the mobilization of both indigenous and external resources, human, financial and technology to improve the quality of life of members of the La Community in particular, and its rural settlements in general.
The general belief of the Association is that the central government alone cannot provide for the needs of its citizenry. Self-help and volunteerism therefore remains the only option. The Association is therefore committed to maintaining and imbibing in the ordinary citizenry, especially Lamei, the culture of these core values– Self-help and volunteerism.
