AAE will support persons living in an impoverished community in Ghana to start micro-enterprises. Participants will be empowered through group learning in technology skills and business training to improve their lives.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
Recent evidence suggests that not only is productivity of poor rural-folks constrained by a lack of appropriate skills training, but also by environmental changes that are becoming more severe every year. Reducing vulnerability entails addressing the challenges people face in a range of interrelated contexts, including the home, the local political system, the local financial market, and the local commodity markets.
How will this project solve this problem?
Groups can play a key role in the delivery of effective 'WE want, WE can' training by providing a platform that enable micro-operators to share training information, collectively press for better training, save, support each other in applying new techniques and technologies. With group based learning, AAE will build capacities and utilize the great potential of women and young people from secluded areas.
Potential Long Term Impact
The project will target 5 groups having an average of 80 micro-operators each. 3 groups already on the support network are: Apam National Service Youth Union, Lower Prampram Canoe Fishermen Association, & Ada Songor Coop. Salt Mining Society. The project will build (on) potentials of the marginalized; create bridges between people in the Ghanaian society and improve participation and contribution to development
