Resume:

GEN Ghana er en ny bevægelse, der skal ud at vise, at den kan noget – både overfor omverdenen, men også overfor sine medlemmer. Derfor har dette projekt et tre-dobbelt fokus: 1) At lade GEN Ghana medlemmer, repræsenteret ved nylige EDE graduerede (4 ugers træning), beskæftige sig med et fælles projekt. 2) At lade District Assemblies og skoleautoriteter vide, at GEN Ghana er på banen. 3) At afprøve metoder til at introducere øko-strategier på skoler. Én skole i 7 regioner bliver udvalgt, folk bliver trænede og skal implementere en skolehave på deres respektive skoler, med hjælp fra en GEN Ghana frivillig. Der udvikles en manual, til replikering. Men vigtigst er, at skolerne får et projekt, der er godt for dem (næringsrigt for børnenes skolemad), men også kan samle både lærere, børn, forældre i et fælles projekt, som de alle kan lære noget af. GEN Ghana lærer samtidig en masse om, hvordan man kan bruge GEN Ghana som netværk til at promovere en dagsorden.
