The project, Resiliency in Northern Ghana (RING), officials say will help increase food security, enhance nutrition- and hygiene-related behaviors to improve the health and resiliency of families in the north.
The USAID said it is providing up to $28 million of the RING’s funds directly to the Ghana government through the Ministry of Finance for disbursement.
“These funds will enable District Assemblies and the NRCC to implement activities that improve nutrition and hygiene, and strengthen the resiliency of poor families,” the US agency said July 29, 2013.
The initiative will be implemented in 17 districts in the Northern Region, the USAID said.
