VPWA's Agricultural Projects

Farming provides the biggest area of employment in Ghana. The VPWA is seeking to empower marginalised groups by creating projects within the agricultural sector.

Moringa Farm Expansion, Volta Region, Ghana

VPWA is working with Shape Lives, an indigenous Ghanaian organisation, to raise funds to expand an existing Moringa Farm near the village of Santrokofi-Bume near Hohoe in Volta Region of Ghana.  The farm currently provides a livelihood for 25 women in the village. Expanding the farm will lead to employment for more than 250 women in the district. This will provide the women with an income to feed their family and fund their children's education.

If you or your institution is interested in supporting this initiative please contact info@vpwa.org to request a full project proposal.
