More jobs are expected to be created soon in Abompe and its environs through the poultry business value-chain and turn around the socio-economic fortunes of residents, especially the youth.

To this end, the entire community of Abompe led by Barima Kwabena Addo, the chief of the area, has commenced construction works on key structures that will house the poultry and other auxiliary structures.

The project has just commenced with concrete works being done on the sub-structure, after which construction works on the main building (the super structure) will continue.

This local economic transformation journey by the chief and people of Abompe in the Fanteakwa South district of the Eastern region of Ghana is anchored through the Facilitated Collective Action Process (FCAP), which aims at strengthening local participation in the implementation of the Assembly’s medium term development plan.

Also called Oman yie die, the project is a partnership between Advocates for Community Alternatives (ACA), a non-profit-making organisation, which helps West African communities that are threatened by the destructive impacts of extractive projects to take control of their futures, and the Fanteakwa South District Assembly.

ACA is supporting the Abompe Poultry Business with a $9,000 micro-grant.

“As a community, we resolved to also contribute towards this laudable project by mobilizing ourselves to provide the basic structures to be used as the poultry farm so that the funds expected from ACA can be channeled mainly into the poultry business, we have envisioned for ourselves”, Barima Kwabena Addo said in an interview.

“As the chief of Abompe, I’m leaving no stone unturned to ensure the successful completion of this project owing to the invaluable benefits it holds for both the present and the future generations of the town.”
