Abstract This chapter tells the story of well-being in the Forikrom community through its search for conservation and revitalization of sacred caves as part of the development of an ecotourism and environmental restoration project. The community applies the endogenous development approach and is supported by the Centre for Indigenous Knowledge and Organizational Development (CIKOD), a Ghanaian NGO. The focus of the chapter is to demonstrate that different well-being assessment approaches and methods have been applied and how these helped both the community and the NGO to a better understanding of the changes in community well-being before and after the development projects.
