Increasing Innovation & Livelihoods In Agriculture in Ghana
Connecting the unconnected is an innovative partnership between BLUETOWN, CARE, the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs and local strategic partners in Ghana.
The purpose of the partnership is to promote digital transformation as an enabler for development by innovating and piloting digital agricultural services for Ghanaian farmers that will ensure more sustainable and resilient production and improved market linkages. The project combines CARE’s approaches to community mobilization, resilience strengthening and livelihoods with BLUETOWN’s rural internet solution and digital content platform LOCAL CLOUD.
