"Making Trade Work for the Poor"

TradeAID Integrated is a non-governmental organisation that works in the Upper East Region of Ghana.

Ghana is often praised for having one of the fastest rates of poverty reduction in Africa, with the figures claiming a fall in poverty from 40% in 1998 to 29% in 2005. However, these levels of poverty reduction are not constant throughout Ghana and, in that same time period, poverty rates in the Upper East Region actually increased from 67% to 70%.

This statistic is attributed to the regional inequality between the north and the south of Ghana. Whilst many areas of the south enjoy two cropping seasons per year, the Northern regions only have one cropping season and the dry season invariably brings food shortages. All human development indicators are very poor for these regions.

TradeAID believes in the power of entrepreneurship to help eliminate this poverty. It works in the local communities, helping to build viable rural enterprises around numerous indigenous livelihoods to generate wealth and employment for the rural poor.
