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.

Farmers Day Awards

As we come to the end of the year, we would like to shed light on two Ashanti Development-trained farmers who won awards at Farmers Day at the beginning of December. Razak Kwamang Frimpong of Amoaman won the best Youth Farmer Award in Sekyere Central District, and Johnson Agyei Douglas of Bobin won the best municipal carrot farmer in Mampong Municipal District. Congratulations to both.

New Borehole at Dome Village

Dome village has its own borehole, but we need a second for the clinic we’re building there. In the past, to drill a borehole we’d hire a drill rig with its team and a supervisor. Nowadays Nicholas, our Ghana Director, supervises the work himself, making it a lot cheaper. The photos show the clinic borehole being drilled.
