Sustainable agriculture in Ghana: Issa Ouedraogos Company shows how it is done

Knowledge transfer for Ghanaian farmers

In order to bring this know-how to men and women, B-BOVID offers a variety of training courses in which modern agricultural techniques, entrepreneurial knowledge or the use of modern information technology are taught. In the B-BOVID machine center, farmers can borrow modern machines for little money and are trained in their use. You will also learn how climate change will continue to change people's lives and work and what can be done about it. They also learn how to process harvested products into higher quality goods and how to use their mobile phones to track current market prices and the weather. Issa Ouedraogo has already won numerous awards for his work, including the United Nations Social Investment Pioneer Award.
