    <p>This study focuses on community development in rural communities in the northern part of Ghana during the military regime of the 1980s. “The revolution” was launched and lasted for ten years following the coup d'état of Air Force Captain Jerry Rawlings on December 31, 1981. During the “revolution” led by Rawlings, “revolutionary organization” was organized by ordinary Ghanaian people throughout the country. Particularly in the rural communities, self-help activities such as the construction of roads, schools, and wells were promoted by the residents. At the center of these activities, there were “youth groups/associations” organized mainly by young people who attended schools, which were still few in the north at that time. By tracing the life story of the individual involved, this paper attempts to understand how the individual came to take a leadership role in the community, focusing on subjective reality. As a result, it was found that the acquisition of “alternative perception of the reality” and “alternative self-perception” through various experiences, including schooling, led the person to initiate group activity aimed at social change. Objectively, these activities were integrated into a popular movement called the “revolution,” but for the subject, the revolution was a “mean” to promote the social change he was pursuing. Even the “revolution” end, a grassroot activist continues what he has been doing since before the arrival of the “revolution.” </p>

    <p>This study focuses on community development in the northern rural areas of Ghana under the socialist military regime PNDC in the early 1980s. During the “revolution” led by PNDC, popular movements occurred across the country. Especially in the rural communities, people organized the meetings and established schools, clinics, and communal farmlands. This paper analyzes what this collective phenomenon meant to the people and what kind of experience it was, based on the narratives of those who led the movement. The analysis revealed that prior to the revolution, the youth associatios started to emerge in the rural communities as new social groups, influenced by the expansion of schooling. These youth were trying to use the situation to gain impetus for social change. As a result of the interaction between the social transformation within the community and the “revolution,” the vertical relationship under traditional authority was pluralized, and community building through the inclusive participation of residents spread. This study pointed out that the experience of participating in such a process of social re-creation promoted awareness of the constructive nature of the society and people's consciousness as its subjects.</p>
