Komaale Initiative




Gervase founded The Komaale Initiative to provide a year-round farming opportunity for vegetable farmers along water-ways in the Wa Municipality of North West Ghana, where the crop-friendly rainy season lasts only four months. Komaale will provide subsistence vegetable farmers with streams of income throughout the year, and create employment opportunities for youth through rice farming. Recently, the venture reports that farmers earned an average of $400 a month in revenue through use of the pumping machine and now are transitioning into their own plots. With the amount raised, it is projected that each farmer will be able to double production on their own plots for the next 4 months.
