The European Union funded Coconut Waste Project (COWAP) has engaged chiefs and elders of some communities within the La-Nkwantanang-Madina Municipality as part of the project’s community entry activities. These communities included Danfa, Adoteiman, Okataban, and Oyarifa.
The team introduced the project to the chiefs and elders of the communities and highlighted the key impacts of the project. These impacts include the creation of employment for the youth of the communities and the improvement in general sanitation issues within the communities. The project team also informed the chiefs and elders on the upcoming official launch of the project and solicited their support and dedication to make the project a success in their respective communities.
The chiefs indicated that the project has come as a timely intervention to reduce the unemployment rates and the issue of indiscriminate disposal of coconut waste in the communities. They urged the team to ensure the sustainability of the intervention and promised their support and commitment to the success of the project.
