Our Global Grant to Ghana has been approved!  Our club contributed $1000 toward this grant, along with other clubs in District 5890 to bring needed agricultural benefits to this region...here is a little bit of information about the nature of the grant:

The goal of this two-year project is to increase economic prosperity and build resilient pro-poor communities around Mole National Park. This objective is pursued by diversifying the local economy and reducing dependency on limited land resources, while creating opportunities for people to be included as suppliers, managers, and owners of economic infrastructure. The project seeks to employ strategies that enhance existing social, natural, human, and financial capital in an environment where distance to markets makes all the difference in livelihood strategy decisions.
