Resume:

Projektet vil I partnerskab mellem Eco Village Plus Foundation Denmark (ECPFD) og ECPF Ghana styrke fødevaresikkerheden i landsbyerne Assuokow og Odumasi I Ghana. Det sker gennem en styrkelse af civilsamfundet omkring smålandbrugene og fokus på deres synlighed og omtale i det ghanesiske samfund. Projektet vil omfatte mindst 436 familier og familiebrug – og i alt berøre mere end 2500 personer. Et år efter projektets afslutning forventes, at 70 - 80 % af de deltagende familier har opnået forbedret fødevaresikkerhed. Der uddannes 25 facilitatorer til at støtte mere end 20 Farmer Family Learning Groups (FFLG) bestående af 10-30 familier. EVPFG vil få opbygget en kapacitet til organisere de lokale landbrug og koordinere gruppernes arbejde og udvikling fremover, med fokus på den økologiske sektor. Der sker udvikling, træning, rådgivning og strategilægning i økologisk landbrug i samarbejde med danske rådgivere og det officielle rådgivningssystem i Ghana.
