Creating measures for sustainability for women and children in rural communities and agricultural development. Green Village Plan Development is a non-governmental organization working to create measures for sustainability in rural communities.
We are mainly aimed at improving the living condition of poor people and focusing on achieving some of the UN Millennium Development Goals. Our work is divided in two branches; Green Village Agriculture Development and Green Village Social & Health Development. Our current projects focus on agricultural development for pineapple farmers in the Eastern Region and a malaria eradication project in the town of Ashaiman.

Great news from our team in Akyem Hemang! Green Village's Susu Savings and Credit Union (headed by Eric, pictured below) is now serving 700 clients with savings and subsidized loan programs and has grown to employ ten team members. We're changing communities one life at a time!
Clean water access, agricultural innovation and physical infrastructure are key to Ghanaian progress and growth.
"Water- or the lack of it- is one of the biggest issues facing urban Africa, which will see a 66 percent population increase to 1.2 billion people by 2050, according to the United Nations. Although water shortages have long plagued parts of the continent, they’ve become the potential killer of Africa’s economic takeoff. Ghana’s $35 billion economy, whose estimated growth of 8 percent in 2013 would outpace the sub-Saharan African average for a sixth straight year, cannot continue at that rate without a modern water network."
A Water Crisis Threatens Ghana's Economic Growth Ghana’s people and businesses struggle as decrepit infrastructure crumbles
"Reviving the culture is also about reviving the spirituality of the people. Even though African countries gained political independence, we did not gain the spiritual independence which is so critical to our development even today.
We first have to decolonize our minds because we are still carrying the shame of our ancestry. Unless we are able to shed this, our efforts are futile. It all starts in the mind. You can then look at issues from a different perspective, bringing the power inspired by your ancestors from within. You are then able to distill the answers and solutions to your problems from that ancestral knowledge.
So [our challenge is] to bring back the whole ecosystem. We are communities of humans, and the ecosystems are the other communities of the earth. These, plus our spirituality, are very important pillars in our work."
Decolonizing Our Minds and Our Lands: Reviving Seeds, Culture and African Strength Recolonization is happening, not just in Africa, but across the global South.

In Ghana, women dominate the food markets- they sell, trade and carry produce to various destinations for miles. They have a visible role both in the urban and the rural economies, and therefore benefit greatly from microfinance, entrepreneurial training and empowerment. This is one such example of women selling oranges at Cape Coast!
These are the books we purchased for our library in Akyem Hemang (and will get plenty more soon!). Thank you all for sending us donations- many of which have already arrived!

Green Village is currently in talks with Ghana Capital Partners (GCP) to help us attain capital to purchase and sell NOKERO ("No Kerosene") solar light bulbs to rural families without electricity who rely on dangerous kerosene lamps for lighting their homes in the evening hours. Nokero bulb would provide an affordable lighting alternative that is healthier and safer, ensuring that families can continue working and learning in the evening hours, and in many cases, increase their monthly incomes. http://nokero.com/
Solar Light from Nokero - Solar Light Bulbs and Solar Phone Chargers Noker's solar lights and solar battery chargers are uniquely designed, high-quality and low-cost. LED lights for outdoor solar lighting and power worldwide.
The village of Akyem Hemang in the Eastern Region of Ghana has spoken: they want a community library, especially for their children.

It would make a world of difference to the children!
Please mail your books to:

Yesterday's meeting with the chairman of the farmers' cooperative on a pineapple-producing farm of the Oboadaka village.
We visited Somanya village and the Fevlo farms to talk to farmers about exporting greater number of mangoes and other harvest this season (which would empower local producers and their livelihoods). The meeting was a success!
Yesterday, the team had a brainstorming/planning session for the next steps we'll take in our agricultural, social, health and community microfinance projects. The session included vast discussion on development needs in Ghana and the issues that need to be addressed for development progress to occur. One of the issues we discussed is the lack of gold mining regulations and human rights abuses by foreign mining companies in Ghana.
Great news! Yesterday, we shipped our first mango export oversees. The shipment comprised of over 4,000 kilos of local farmers' mangoes and was headed to Lebanon. The proceeds of this transaction will go directly to the farmers' pockets. Way to go, team!
Green Village Plan Development is working with local farmers in rural communities to teach them about foreign market harvest quality standards and help them sell their produce abroad. Few days ago, we toured a local farm and got a glimpse of okra, chili pepper and rice fields.
