The girls from House of Grace Ghana took a field trip to the local poultry farm to learn about the nutritional value of eggs and chickens, a vital source of protein in rural and urban environments. According to USAID, Ghana has one of the fastest-growing economies in the world. However, one of their challenges is low agricultural productivity.
The US Leadership Coalition states that forty-five percent of childhood deaths are linked to malnutrition. Some world leaders believe part of the solution is chicken farming, which was named in 2016 as the best solution to global poverty.
As we educate future world leaders, it is essential to prepare our girls to influence their national economy and empower their country, providing solutions through critical thinking and education. According to the 2023 Investment Climate Statements: Ghana, the most promising sectors are agribusiness and food processing for growth and financial stability. We encourage every girl to follow her God-given destiny. Because of the generosity of people like you, our girls can explore many facets of STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math) education. It’s very possible we may have the next agricultural entrepreneur growing up at House of Grace Ghana!
