Darsfoundation aims at alleviating poverty of women and the youths in RuralGhana through integrated sustainable afforestation programs, slowing rural-urban drift, contributing to creation of sustainable jobs. The project also aims at addressing the low level of #technologies #productivity in rural Ghana. We aims at addressing this deficiency through transfer of technology, thereby improving the low level of technology and productivity & aiding in improving the low income levels of beneficiaries.
Rural areas are failing to provide opportunity and are losing their young people. This has major consequences at local, national & global level. It can erode national economies, political stability & food security.

Now we've over 1.2 billion youth & women at 15-24 years unemployed

Empowerment: Agribusiness financing & development of women & youth groups interested in integrated sustainable organic farming. Markets: Providing alternative markets for sales of agri produce. Addressing the drivers of environmental degradation by establishing community agroforests for sustainable farming in RuralGhana. Addressing women, youth unemployment & migration in sustainable farming.

Joining global efforts in curbing global warming (climate change) by providing carbon sinks [through carbon sequestration]. Modular organic regenerative technologies that create sustained jobs & wealth that improves the quality of life for members
