150 People 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 people from Garadima, Watro and Mem in the Brong Ahafo Region.


SATISFY is a five year food security program implemented by the 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.

According to Mr. Isaac Oppong, the district head of 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 soap made in bars and tablets for both washing and bathing.

The beneficiaries beaming with joy and happiness thanked the two institutions (BAC and SATISFY) for the intervention.

They pledged to take advantage of training to better their lot in the face of unreliable rainfall patterns due to climate change and also reduce charcoal burning that results in environmental degradation.
