Bongo (UE), July 2, GNA – Mr Peter Ayamga Ayinbisa,
District Chief Executive for Bongo in the Upper East Region has said women will
have more opportunities under the government flagship programme, “one village,
one dam”.

“Even though we have not had any land that is
reserved only for women, opportunities have been created under the flagship
programme for women to go into extensive farming”.

Mr Ayinbisa said agriculture in the Bongo
District was not a profession preserved for only men and indicated that women
were deeply involved and performing credibly well in the agricultural sector.

He said the flagship programme provided equal
access to men and women to carry out dry and raining season farming activities
and noted that the women by their exemplary skills in Farming would work to ensure
sustained livelihoods for their families.

He indicated that the one village, one dam
project had started, with eight communities being provided with dams, and noted
that one of the areas where the eight dams were being constructed belonged to a
women’s group.

Mr Ayinbisa urged the constituents to take
advantage of the programme which provided opportunity for dry and rainy season
farming activities to enrol into it.

The DCE indicated that 10 women groups had
been prepared by the Bongo District Assembly to access financial support from
MASLOC and said an amount of GH¢54,000.00 had been provided for women with
various forms of disabilities in the area.

He appealed to them to exercise patience with
the government and the Assembly in particular and said efforts were underway to
address the social needs of the people in the district. “Be patient, the
government will fulfil all its promises. The DCE stressed.
