This project aims to increase access to sufficient, safe, and nutritious food, and improve the health, economic well-being and social development of the underserved rural population of the Upper Manya Krobo district of Ghana. It directly benefits 21,000 rural residents, half of whom are women and girls. Project activities contribute to increasing the capacity of local institutions to formulate evidence-based policy, develop programs, and produce adult education materials. This project is implemented by McGill University in partnership with the University of Ghana.
