After the Kumvana Program, we became a social enterprise
I’ve delegated a lot more power to my workers, and they are starting to see the farm as their own.
I started my farm in Ghana as a for-profit business, but participating in EWB’s Kumvana Leadership Program helped change that. We’ve become a social enterprise, providing volunteer training for farmers and linking them to markets.
After completing Kumvana’s foundation course on systemic change, I realized there were aspects of the farm I could improve. I’ve delegated a lot more power to my workers, and they are starting to see the farm as their own. I’ve now moved to Canada to do my Masters of Science in Crop Protection and the farm is still running because they know they’re contributing to a sustainable business.
