In December 2014, Adjoa Andoh presented our Radio 4 appeal as part of our three-month Seeds of Opportunity appeal. An appeal which raised, with gift aid and the UK government match, an amazing £6 million!
A year on since the appeal closed – projects in Mozambique and Ghana have been set up to support farming communities with training and loans so that they can move from subsistence to commercial farming. In March this year, Adjoa travelled to the remote communities of Northern Ghana to meet the very farmers and the communities who are benefiting from the Seeds of Opportunity appeal…
Reflecting on her trip Adjoa says:
Because of the public’s generosity to the appeal, local people who would never have been deemed worthy of a regular bank account, are able to have access to savings accounts and to small loans. They are on the financial grid, they have access to expertise and funds that can help them grow their enterprises.”
The Seeds of Opportunity appeal and its success to date is thanks to YOUR generosity On behalf of Fati, her community and the thousands of farmers and entrepreneurs who are working hard for a better life, THANK YOU.
