Challenge

ASIGE Women baskets currently use the shade provided by a tree to weave baskets. and with the rainy season we have to break up because of the weather. Even in the dry season we work under capacity due to cold and heat. With registered membership of 500 only 87 are active due to the lack of a structure. These women are the bread winners of their families and if production is stopped 1000s of lives will suffer in Bolgatanga Ghana.

Solution

If we provide a structure the women can work all year round including day and night shift to take care of their families. We will provide women with sustainable source of livelihood and income in Atampuurum in Bolgatanga Ghana

Long-Term Impact

The project will improve the quality of live through sustainable source of income and employment and also prevent the women from street hawking as well as their children
