- SNV is collaborating with the Northern Rural Growth Project (NRGP) to implement the women’s crop commodity window. This includes addressing challenges in the shea, sesame and moringa sectors using the value chain approach. Work has started on the shea value chain and will be extended to the other two crops going forward.
- Through collaboration efforts, SNV and Tree Aid are implementing the Northern Ghana Non-Timber Forest Products (NTFP) Trade Programme. The intervention is geared at promoting NTFPs such as shea, honey, dadadawa and baobab in Ghana. The project builds on existing local structures and networks, strengthening Producer Associations from district to regional level and facilitates meaningful engagement with other value chain actors – including producer groups, buyers, processors and consumers. It will also work to strengthen Value Chain linkages for NTFPs in Northern Ghana.
- The partnership between SNV and the Business Development Services Fund (BDSF) provides matching grant funds for Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) to invest in business development services.
- By collaborating with Fair trade Labelling Organisation International (FLO), SNV facilitates the fair trade labelling certification to small farmers'products thus providing them with new market access and income increase.
- Together with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, SNV Ghana, Mali and Kenya are implementing the Home-Grown School Feeding Programme. 26,000 smallholder farmers (30% women) will get direct benefits from selling products to Home Grown School Feeding Program.
