🌱 Clement is the leader of a group of farmers in Baazing, a very very rural community in the north of Lawra.

🍅 Many of the group are blind. They work together the grow food against all odds, all year round.

🌶 We are proud and grateful to be able to support these amazing people by providing annual financial support to their farm. We’ve been working with them for 6 years.

☀️Right now, they’re growing food, in the toughest of conditions, under a very hot sun. It’s lean season, the hungriest time of the year.

💦 Our cash grant helps them to purchase inputs and equipment, and make sure they have access to water. This makes it possible for their families to eat, and for excess produce to be sold at market.

💰 You can help us to continue this incredibly important work by making a donation via our website: www.ateghana.org
