ProNet North newsletter (updates 1st to 30th November) is available now. Visit our website and check the activities we have done.
In the beginning of December, ProNet Director and WASH team visited beneficiary communities of WaterAid project for monitoring. The team visited Health Center and Schools in Bulenga in the Wa East District and inspected the condition of water facilities. In addition, the staff had dialogues with beneficiaries in the community to identify the issues that they are currently facing on the facilities.
We love being a part of this project and we are committed to serving our people in the north. Thank you so much GROW - MEDA Ghana
GROW friends from Soybean Innovation Laboratory (SIL) had a two day field visit to the GROW project. They met Mr.Baaru, who owns and operates a soymilk processi...ng plant from the support of MEDA and ATT/USAID. They also had an interaction with Dr. Saaka Buah, Director of Savannah Agriculture Research Institute (SARI) to discuss updates and concerns on soybeans. The team then visited GROW Key Facilitating Partner (KFP), Pronet NORTH WA and their communities to meet and interact with the groups and women about their soybeans farms. SIL is providing GROW team with technical support on good agronomic practices on soybean production. They are also supporting the project in identifying low-cost soybean threshers that can be made locally in Ghana and can provide big help to the GROW women.
It is yet another farming season and PronetNorth Ghana is doing a share-out for the women of Baaleyir on the Village Savings and Loans Association (VSLA) for GROW clients to support them with their farming activities. Through the VSLA, the women do weekly savings in metal boxes and they loan them out to themselves on periodic basis. They also offload these savings into financial institutions which enables them to obtain credit from those financial institutions to support themselves in diverse ways which is a way of getting small savers in rural communities to get into the financial sector of the country. Rural poverty is our enemy and we are determined to defeat it completely.
This is how PronetNorth Ghana is changing lives with our dry season irrigation farming project. We are blessed with land in the Upper West Region but with little rains which is a blockade for the survival of our many subsistence farmers. PronetNorth Ghana believes that we can defy the rules of nature with innovation and creativity and make an impact in our society

Enhancing Livelihoods through Climate change adaptation project (ELCAP), was funded by OXFAM and implemented by Pronet north in four farming communities in the Nadowli-Kaleo district of the Upper West region, with the aim of empowering rural communities to be able to face the challenges of Climate Change. watch on this link. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J9l0hXuksaQ
