Tree Planting Program
The centre has planted more than 500 trees in the Ashanti region and some parts of northern Ghana to mitigate the impact of Climate Change.Our team partnered with communities leaders in Timeabu in the Ashanti among other communities to promote environmental protection.
In the past year
• More hundred students in Upper West region were trained on reduction of food waste.
• 250 food vendors were also trained on how to manage leftovers.
.100 volunteers were trained on how to repackage these leftovers to various use rather than dumping them somewhere.
In 2018 & 2019, the centre provided training to farmers on how to dispose off chemical containers.
More than 20 communities in Ghana benefited from the training and capacity building.
√ Our work ensured that farmers who were previously using chemical containers as water drinking cans ended.
√ In the past year:
√ 200 youth were trained and introduced into various farming opportunities.
√ The centre organised seminars, agribusiness workshop and farms visit for them.
√ 50 women have also benefited from such training and workshop to expose them to the world of opportunities.
