POWER Project: ActionAid to empower 8,000 women in Adaklu

Volta Regional Programs Officer for ActionAid Ghana, Mr. Foster Adesi-Adjei, has charged women’s groups benefiting from the “POWER” project to share their knowledge acquired with their community members in order broadened the scope of the project.

Mr. Adesi-Adjei made this call yesterday when he addressed women’s groups from the Adaklu and Kadjebi Districts at a community facilitators’ experience sharing workshop held in Ho.

The workshop was aimed at sharing experiences of good practice, strengthening capacities and to generate recommendations on how to sustain and build on the results of the project.

Elaborating on the overview of the project, Mr. Adesi-Adjei said one of the outcomes of the project is to make sure that by the end of 2020, 21,000 rural women have more secure and sustainable access to markets and productive resources leading to increased income.

He added that plans are underway to include ten other women’s groups from ten communities in the Adaklu District to make the number 25 women’s groups in order to achieve the target of 800 direct women beneficiaries.

Some beneficiaries from the POWER project who spoke to Global Fm News were highly impressed about the initiative by ActionAid Ghana and have called for the extension of the program to other rural communities.

The POWER project is also supporting women with tools and knowledge to practice Climate Resilient Sustainable Agriculture. This is meant both as a tool to secure the women’s livelihoods and productivity in the longer term and to reduce Unpaid Care Work.
