CALID Ghana, in partnership with the Vibrant Village Foundation (VVF), is making remarkable strides in empowering women in agriculture in the North East Gonja and Central Gonja Districts in the Savannah Region of Ghana. Through this project, women farmers are receiving critical support in the form of land preparation, tractor services, and financial literacy training. This initiative aims to uplift and empower women in the agricultural sector, creating positive impacts on their lives and society as a whole.

Land Preparation for Women Farmers is one of the key services provided by the project to women farmers. Historically, access to arable land has been a significant challenge for women in Ghana. However, CALID Ghana, with the support of VVF, is working to overcome this hurdle by providing women farmers with the necessary resources and support to cultivate their own land. By facilitating land preparation, these women are now able to engage in productive agricultural activities, enhance food security, and generate income and nutrition for their families.

Recognizing the importance of mechanization in modern agriculture, the project has also extended tractor services to women farmers in these Districts. The provision of tractors has significantly alleviated the physical labour associated with farming, enabling women to increase their efficiency and productivity. With access to mechanized farming equipment, women farmers can cultivate larger areas of land within shorter periods, leading to increased crop yields and enhanced economic opportunities.

In addition, the project places great emphasis on empowering women through financial literacy training. Recognizing that financial knowledge is a crucial component of successful entrepreneurship. The project equips women with the necessary skills to effectively manage their finances, make informed business decisions, and access financial resources. This training has been instrumental in helping women farmers develop sustainable and profitable agricultural enterprises, thereby contributing to their economic independence and improved livelihoods.

However, the impact of this empowerment project on women and society cannot be overstated. By providing women with access to arable land, tractor services, and financial literacy training, CALID Ghana is breaking down barriers and creating an enabling environment for women to thrive in agriculture. The project has empowered women farmers, boosted their self-confidence, and enabled them to take charge of their economic futures. The ability of these women to generate income and contribute to household and community development has far-reaching positive effects, promoting gender equality and social progress.

Thus far, the project has supported 30 women with tractor services, allowing them to scale up their farming operations and achieve higher crop yields. Additionally, 50 women have undergone financial literacy training, equipping them with the necessary tools to make informed financial decisions and effectively manage their agricultural businesses. The ripple effect extends beyond the individual beneficiaries, creating a positive impact on their families, children’s education, communities, and the wider society.

In conclusion, the empowerment for women in agriculture in the North East and Central Gonja District in the Savannah region, with funding support from VVF, is making a significant difference in the lives of women farmers. Supporting women in land preparation, with tractor services, and financial literacy training, enabled women to overcome traditional barriers and take charge of their agricultural enterprises. The impact is far-reaching, as empowered women contribute to food security, economic growth, and social progress in their communities. 

CALID Ghana is exemplifying the transformative power of empowering women in agriculture, paving the way for a more inclusive and prosperous future for all.
