Ghana launches €820,000 mushroom project
The Adentan Municipal Assembly has launched a 820,000 Euro mushroom project, dubbed the ‘Promush Project’, to create 5,500jobs for the youth and persons with disabilities.
The three-year project is funded by the European Union(EU) with an amount of 660,000 Euros while the assembly, Centre for Local Governance Advocacy(CLGA) and Local Government Network (LOGNet), contributed a total of 160,000 Euros.
Hajia Mahama said the project would use community sensitisation programmes to orient the crop and animal farmers, youth and the general public to see mushroom farming as a viable business venture.
“Potential farmers will be encouraged to adopt mushroom farming as a main activity to contribute to creating employment,” Hajia Mahama said.
“As a government we shall deliver on our promise of creating a strong economy that will create opportunities for new businesses, encourage existing businesses to expand and make investment,” she said.
