“Rural women face multiple barriers to social and economic development that prevents them from benefiting from the economic changes in Ghana,” Mrs. Mavis remarked.

The WALA project seeks to advocate for more equitable gender associations at the household level and fruitful producer teams stemming in increased earning for members at the community level, Mrs. Owiredu Nagel remarked.

“It will also create an enabling environment focusing on current governmental policies and socio-economic development plans,’’ she remarked.

The Executive Director of Centre for Child Protection, Madam Princess Antwi, said the project was being implemented in the Western Region and that intercession would aim at Agri-production, one of the most significant value chains in the area.

Madam Antwi said CCPDA intercession would allow women farmers to control their assets, a significant point in attaining not only the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal-5 (Gender Equality and Empowering Women and Girls), but assist attain the objectives 1 and 2, – Eliminating Poverty, and Ending Hunger.
