COMMUNITY GREEN ECONOMY PROJECT, CGEP
Community Green Economy project seeks to train women and youth within the rural and peri-urban areas in Ashanti Ghana, by creating sustainable green/circular economy jobs through entrepreneurship while reducing the impact of unemployment, poverty and waste pollution. The women are trained on Fish farming, Mushroom farming with sawdust, Soap making and its added value from cocoa pods as well as Organic fertilizer production. These skills set the pace for achieving innovative green and circular jobs in Ghana.
Hard skills training will complement beneficiaries with business skills, strategies and measures to sustainably develop their businesses. The Community Green Economic Project is supporting more women and youths build sustainable businesses, increase their income generation, raise their voices in decision making, transform their communities and build stronger circular economy ecosystem in Ghana.
