Jei River Cabbage Value Chain, Ghana

Vivian Turkson, an Agribusiness short course participant in 2017, is a Women in Agriculture Development Officer with the Ministry of Food and Agriculture in Ghana.

Vivian's role involves delivering projects that impact the lives of women, especially in farming and agribusiness through income generation and empowerment. 

Vivian said that her experience in the course, both in Australia and Ghana gave her a better understanding of value chains and how value chain thinking can be used to improve the lives of smallholder farmers. 

“It is my hope that by working with the value chain actors we will be able to increase incomes in the community and create more opportunities for women and youth to better their lives," she said. 

“I went back to share my findings with the chain members and the recommendations I also came up with. These efforts will go a long way towards fulfilling Sustainable Development Goals of alleviating poverty and fighting inequality in my community and country as a whole.”
