(Ghana Business News) ActionAid to support 3000 women smallholder farmers in Northern Ghana
ActionAid Ghana with support from the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs is implementing a project dubbed ‘Women Rights to Sustainable Livelihoods’ aimed at supporting 3,000 women smallholder farmers in four districts to increase food production and crop yields.
The three-and-a-half-year project is being implemented in the Nanumba North and Nanumba South Districts in the Northern Region and in the Tallensi and Nabdam Districts of the Upper East Region to boost the women’s capacities and sensitize them on the need to demand from stakeholders the attention that would enhance women’s participation in agriculture.
As part of the project interventions, the beneficiaries would be given goats for livestock rearing, food processing, and providing seeds to some women for crop cultivation.
Madam Azumi Mesuna, Project Manager of Women’s Rights and Sustainable Livelihoods of ActionAid-Ghana disclosed this on Thursday in Bimbilla in the Nanumba North District at the opening ceremony of a ten-day training of trainee’s workshop.
