Ghana has a relatively strong economy, thanks in part to the cocoa industry. Ghana 4-H has taken an active role to give youth opportunities to plant trees, including cocoa. The cocoa industry provides excellent opportunities for youth, and many of the 4-Hers are excited about the tree planting projects because they see them as a stepping stone toward a possible career in that industry.
4HMT-GHANA has teamed with Treecycler to crowdsource funding so youth can plant trees. In addition, 4HMT is searching for additional funding that will allow more Ghana 4-H youth to join in the fun of planting trees as community service projects.
