Securing Stability: Diversifying Sources of Income

Training session on Snail Aquaculture
Training session on Snail Aquaculture

The SMILE Ghana project has entered its third and final year of fieldwork in two villages in the Ahafo Region in Ghana.

More and more people in the village understand the negative consequences of child labour and the importance of children's education.

Efforts have progressed to stabilise and improve the livelihoods of the children’s parents, cacao farmers, so that the children can continue to go to school with peace of mind.

The village had long wanted to create another source of income other than cacao. So we started working with the Ghana Cocoa Board to hold training sessions on snail aquaculture (Snail For Food). In a cacao field, an aquacultural shelf can be made where these edible snails can be produced by feeding them things such as banana leaves. This was a new source of cash income that could easily be set up by the cacao farmers.

The first proceeds were used for the maintenance of the village schools.

Now, regardless of whether cacao production decreases or not, alternative sources of income ensure a stable flow of cash. This protects children from child labour and ensures a stable educational environment.

ACE will continue to support cacao farmers in maintaining cacao production areas in which children are protected from exploitation.
