GSAP was originally called the Ghana Literacy Project, and focused on education. In 2010, Ghana Literacy Project was renamed the Ghana Sustainable Aid Project, and expanded its mission to be able to work on projects with longer-lasting and economically sustainable potential.
By 2013, one of GSAP’s projects had grown above the others — the GSAP toilets — and led to GSAP becoming an international organization. GSAP now stands for Global Sustainable Aid Project, though we still do non-sanitation-based projects in Ghana under GSAP-Ghana.
