|Description du stage :||
The Food Security project in Ghana is aiming to establish a more
productive agricultural sector in Northern Ghana through soybean production.
Over 80% of the people in the Upper East Region are engaged in farming as a
means of livelihood. This project will work to encourage and support the
formation of farmer-based organizations as a way of increasing income and
reducing poverty in northern Ghana.
In Canada the intern will attend a pre-departure orientation.
Building on the work of previous interns the Impact Assessment Officer will continue to collect and process qualitative and quantitative data for the Food Security through Co-operation project. The data will then be used to evaluate the project on the following key components:
1.Nutrition improvement through education and promotion of the use of soya beans;
2.Farmers co-operative development through education, training and organizational development support;
3.Credit union development through education, training and management support;
4.Gender and family resource management training involving participating farmers and staff of implementing partners e.g. Ministry of Food and Agriculture, Ministry of Health and local NGOs
5.Soya bean production and utilization and policy advocacy.
