20 communities benefit from UN human security programme
Twenty communities in the Bawku Municipality and its environs are benefiting from a United Nations’ joint programme on human security to empower and promote the socio-economic development of the people.
The programme aims at creating an enabling environment for capacity building of individuals and communities in the three northern regions to enhance conflict prevention through Integrated and people centred approaches.
The programme is on the theme, “Enhancing human security through developing local capacity for holistic community-based conflict prevention in northern Ghana”.
As part of the programme, about 100 farmers from the 20 communities received five sheep each to boost live stock rearing in the area. The beneficiaries are expected to breed the animals and then give away five offspring to others in their communities.
Addressing the beneficiaries, Mr Musah Abduliah, Municipal Chief Executive for Bawku, urged the farmers to take good care of the animals in order to pay back in the next two years and also make profit for their households.
