The first class began at the Ghana Training Center for Young Farmers in March with 21 trainees who received technical and hands-on training in an effort to increase income.
The trainees learned about the care and managment of poultry. The next training session will include rabbits.
Trainees are currently digging and cementing a surface for a mushroom shed. Basic training began with Robert Arthur, mushroom specialist, to develop compost for mushrooms.
Students told the staff of Self-Help they are satisfied with the performance of the instructors and are happy to be part of the training. There is a great deal of enthusiasm about the possibilities training will offer each of them for their future.
Your support of the Ghana Training Center for Young Farmers have made these classes and opportunities possible. Thank you for your generosity.
