We’d love for our supporters to see this article below from Ghana. CIKOD, with the support of Groundswell and others, has been strengthening and spreading agroecological alternatives as well as working with a national Agroecology Movement to support laws that strengthen local seed systems and prohibit GMOs.

  Ghana does not need GMO to ensure food sufficiency

Bern Guri, West Africa Program Advisor for Groundswell International and founder of CIKOD in Ghana, recently shared “We are working to build an Agroecology Movement in Ghana that spreads effective farming strategies among communities, and works to protect farmers’ rights to their seeds. Even top policymakers now recognize that Ghana does not need GMO seeds! We are making progress as we build healthier farming and food systems for Ghana!”

If you support this work, please consider becoming a sustaining donor to help us amplify our efforts.
