Meeting Fulani

The photos show Ashanti Development’s Nicholas Aboagye with a group of Fulani tribesmen who he has recruited to join our farm support project. Most Fulani tribesmen we come across are nomadic herdsmen and they often come into conflict with the Ashantis if, for example, they let their cattle pollute a water source.

Nicholas has persuaded this group to learn how to grow crops instead of herding cattle. If they succeed, their relations with the Ashantis will probably become much more peaceful.

Update on The New Clinic Project in Dome

Here are some photos of the new clinic we’re building in the village of Dome. Dome is directly on the main route used by migrants due to reasons such as climate change or conflicts which has made it too difficult to sustain life in their home villages. They settle in large numbers around Dome, which we hope will become a hub for development of the area.

Justice Nkwanta

Justice Nkwanta, who comes from Ashanti Development’s home village of Gyetiase, was one of the earlier students we sponsored.
He visited a few weeks ago to tell us that he has now completed his university course of politics and economics and is thinking of changing to law. Students like Justice make us realise what a lot many people can do if they’re only given half a chance.

Farm Support Scheme in Fawoman

Earlier this week the farmers of Fawoman Village were delighted to receive £75 each to buy good farm inputs. Fawoman has fallen a little behind its neighbours in that we haven’t yet found it a sponsor for water and sanitation. However while waiting they’ve joined our farm support scheme and are more than happy.

Recruitment of New Farmers

The farm year starts around now, and farmers will soon be busy planting new crops. Ashanti Development already trains farmers in 51 villages in farming and marketing, and we’re busy recruiting more villages to join the scheme. The pictures show Nicholas, our Country Director, explaining the scheme to farmers from Odumase village and Odumase Komkoma, which is the part of Odumase where migrants from the Komkoma tribe have settled.
