The Nation Builders Corps (NABCO) Enrichment Modules To Feed Ghana
Agriculture is central to Ghana’s transformation agenda. Across the agricultural value-chain therefore NABCO trainees could be made valuable in the delivery of crucial services required for increased productivity. Trained Agricultural extension and other allied workers in the “Feed Ghana” programme will provide extensive support to farmers. E-agriculture and the dissemination of scientific knowledge, mechanization centres, and seed and fertilizer programmes, the District Centres for Agricultural Transformation, District Warehouse and logistical management, offer immediate pointers for engagement of NABCO personnel.
The Ministry of Food and Agriculture with the complement of the Ministry of Local Government and Rural Development are the lead enablers of this NABCO enrichment module. In addition to the private agribusiness component, this has shown a potential to absorb over 20,000 trainees.
