Banner Ghana Agrofood Training

2022 started off with new projects and the continuation of our old projects. The Ghanaian segment of the ongoing agrofood entrepreneurship training has now started. This is a free training for rural farmers focusing on good agricultural practices and access to premium markets. 

The first session of the training on good agricultural practices is facilitated by COLEACP trainers Mark Tutu Sarpong and Benjamin Horlali Kofi Atidjah. The training will be from the 18th to the 31st January 2022.  At the end of the training, our expectation is that the agrofood entrepreneurs will have good foundations to build successful agrofood businesses.

The agrofood entrepreneurship training is an initiative of the Food Bridge vzw in partnership with Etika and Sankaa Belgium; funded by Transpetrol Foundation and COLEACP.  

 

From the Food Bridge 2021 1

 

The covid pandemic was a major challenge for all sectors in 2021. Despite this, at the Food Bridge vzw, we were still  able to organize our  annual events; Africana Flavours, African Diaspora Agrofood Forum and Foodcation BXL.

We also successfully completed the Humanitas Project (

), an anti-racism project subsidized by the Equal Opportunities Department of the ministry of Justice Belgium.

Irrespective of the challenges posed by the pandemic, we were able to continue the training of rural African farmers in Nigeria and Ghana; and also the Helping Hand project, our feeding program in Belgium.

We were able to achieve all these and more because of the dedication of our volunteers and the support of our partners. We thank all the people and organizations that support our work and look forward to greater collaborations in 2022.

The Helping Hand Project

In collaboration with Kwabre Ne Sekyere Belgium,Mfantesman vzw,Voice of Women International, Kente FM and other African organizations, we are organizing "The Helping Hand project",is an action started in 2016, aimed at feeding the homeless in the Brussels area. We are in need of volunteers to help with the cooking, packing and distribution of food to the homeless and needy. We are also still looking for sponsors for this project. We do not accept funds but prefer sponsorship in the form of donations of desired food items, food packaging materials. if you are interested in giving a helping hand, contact us on This email address is being protected from spambots.
