Alleviating poverty in Ghana.

In Ghana, the landscape of poverty is increasingly concentrated in rural areas, where numerous low-income households depend on cocoa cultivation as their primary source of sustenance.

As the country’s largest export, cocoa possesses immense potential to uplift these families from the depths of extreme poverty, especially given its escalating global demand. Ghana’s journey towards economic advancement over recent decades stands as a beacon of progress in West Africa. Nonetheless, many households continue to teeter on the brink of poverty, where even a minor setback like unforeseen healthcare expenses or adverse weather during the planting season can plunge them back into destitution. Elevating the agriculture sector’s strength and ensuring accessible quality education for their children are pivotal elements for propelling the nation’s progress further.
