Horticulture in Ghana
Horticulture in Ghana for a Brighter Future is a Ghanaian-Dutch cooperation to bring about sustainable growth in the Ghanaian horticulture sector. The TU Delft, together with the Kwadaso Agricultural College (KAC) and Holland Green Tech Ghana (HGT), developed a 4-month vocational training program to equip the youth to find a job or become an entrepreneur in the horticulture sector. Horticulture in Ghana for a Brighter Future uses a blended competence-based approach to teach young farmers about new technologies and good economic practices.
The project is completely implemented by a team that is based in Ghana and exists of Ghanaian experts. This ensures that it fits the local context. Watch hereunder how cooperation between Kwadaso Agricultural College & TU Delft trains young Ghanaian farmers, increasing local employment & food security.
