COOPEN ProjectBurkina Faso
Funded by Fondazione Cariplo and coordinated by ACRA in collaboration with Sote Hub. Through this project, COOPEN, we introduced Hydroponic farming as a small-scale business idea for improving food supply, health conditions, local economy, and environmental sustainability for a group of 30 women in Burkina Faso.
Sote Hub provides support in developing a solid business and action plan for implementing the innovation in Burkina Faso and in establishing the needed networks and linkages to strengthen the innovation's replicability and scalability.
- The target women groups are growing indigenous varieties of vegetables in the eco-friendly greenhouses, for nutrition, income diversification and development of new skills.
- Marginalized single mothers and families in need have been given the opportunity to be involved in the project, facilitating their access to productive resources and business opportunities.
