Why OVO believes in this project
The project has the potential for a large local multiplier effect with a strong socio-economic impact on employment and higher revenues for the local farming communities and distributors. It also ensures more food security, meaning that, in part thanks to higher incomes, the community in question gains access to the higher segment of the Maslov pyramid as well as access to education and the establishment of a resilient social network. What’s more, there is a major focus on diversification as a response to climate change.
Initially €60,000 is being sought. €15,000 of this has already been collected via the OVO consultant channel. The need for further funding is above all motivated by the limited accommodation of the current facilities, meaning that among other things animals have to be sold sooner than expected.
The initiative is backed by a small but apt management team. Nvenakeng Suzanne Awung is the right person to realize the potential of this project locally, regionally and internationally.
