Empowering WOMEN in Ghana
Sustainable Fisheries Management [SFMP]
The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) has committed an approximately $24 million dollars to the SFMP to contribute to food security in Ghana.
The Coastal Resources Center at the Graduate School of Oceanography, University of Rhode Island, USA (CRC), is the lead in this project lasting from October 2014 to October 2019.
The main purpose of the SFMP is to rebuild targeted fish stocks through adoption of sustainable practices and exploitation levels. The project is designed to improve fisheries management and strengthen governance to have positive impacts on fisheries resources and the people that depend on marine ecosystem goods and services.
To liberate the rural poor from indignity and oppression of their knowledge, eliminate hunger and poverty, economic injustice, inferiority complex and illiteracy by upholding their dignity, sense of belonging and ownership and build self-sufficiency and sustainable development.
CEWEFIA helps people in need. We help women and children within fishing and farming communities build their lives.
By so doing, we also provide the opportunity, and the inspiration, to enable volunteers to undertake humanitarian work in practical ways. Serving others in need is truly a life changing experience.
Many people stand with us month by month helping us to make a difference in people’s lives. Would you or your organisation consider helping CEWEFIA by becoming a monthly donor?
