150 Acquire Soap Making Skills


Nov 2014

The Atebubu-Amantin office of the Business Advisory Centre (BAC) with support from the SATISFY project of the World Vision International (WVI) has organized training programmes in soap making for one hundred and fifty (150)people from Garadima, Watro and Mem.


SATISFY is a five year food security programme implemented by the World Vision International (WVI) and funded by the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) with the overall objective of improving the food security status of men and women in poor rural communities of the Atebubu-Amantin and Kintampo South districts of Ghana.

According to Mr. Isaac Oppong, the district head of the BAC, the training was aimed at offering an additional source of income or alternative livelihood for the people who are mainly farmers and charcoal burners to improve their incomes and to better their lot.

Madam Agnes Acheampong of Achempa Ventures based in Donkorkrom in the Afram Plains of the Eastern region, took the people mainly women through the preparation, cutting, designing and labeling of three varieties of soaps made in bars and tablets for both washing and bathing.

The beneficiaries thanked both the BAC and SATISFY for the intervention which they pledged to take advantage of to better their lot in the face of unreliable rainfall patterns due to climate change and the need to reduce charcoal burning to avoid environmental degradation.
