The Abooman Women’s Group: We Started Our Own Thing

This is part of a series on my visit with the Ecumenical Association for Sustainable Agriculture and Rural Development and the projects they support in southern Ghana.

With support from the Ecumenical Association for Sustainable Agriculture and Rural Development (ECASARD) and Heifer International, members of the Abooman Women’s Group are raising and caring for dairy cows to make yogurt and pasteurized milk for sale to the local community and schools. Some of the women are also raising bees. Check out this video of the group and hear its leader, Fatima Addy, explain why it was important to have a group that consists mainly of women working together to help one another.
