Young Entrepreneur Scholarship
Scholarship for Young Entrepreneurs from English Speaking Countries
Winner of Market Inspector's Young Entrepreneurs Scholarship 2019
Market Inspector thanks all the applicants for their participation in the Young Entrepreneur scholarship of 2019. We received many qualified applications with inspiring business ideas, which made it a challenge to select a winner.
The winner for Market Inspector's Young Entrepreneur Scholarship 2019 is Elizabeth Adikah, for the work she is doing through the Green Ghana programme.
Green Ghana is the flagship programme of the Heritage Charity Foundation, spearheaded by Elizabeth. It is an entrepreneurship training programme for rural, unemployed women in Ghana.
The programme aims to build the skills of farmers to increase the effectiveness and sustainability of the farming cooperatives in Ghana. By improving the technical agricultural, business, and functional literacy skills, it will enable farmers to increase their crop yields.
Green Ghana will train individuals from each vilage to strengthen their literacy skills relevant to agriculture, such as crop production, storage, fertiliser measures, pesticide labels, and marketing.
"Poverty, food insecurity, and low literacy levels impact women more severely in the district. Women also have limited access to land and are vulnerable to discriminatory attitudes, which can hinder their ability to negotiate crop sales and to coordinate production with local buyer demands.
[...]The project will create long-term and sustainable change, by permanently improving household income, which will enable families to be able to spend on education, health care, and nutritious foods. The increased economic empowerment of women will also reduce gender inequality relating to education and economic engagement."
- Elizabeth Adikah
Elizabeth's work to help rural unemployed women in Ghana is inspiring, and we commend her vision and work.
