OUR FOCUS AREAS

AWARENESS CREATION

Making a huge contribution to the awareness creation strategy of GHACCO is the link with women’s groups to help stimulate the adoption of clean and efficient cookstoves and fuels. In this respect, 40 women have been out-doored as improved Cooking  Solutions  Advocates and provided with an improved cookstove each. These women are chosen from the Greater Accra and Ashanti Regions and will receive training to also become trainers of other women and women’s groups.

MEMBERSHIP DRIVE

GHACCO is designing “incentive structures” which would specify clear rewards for intended results from members who would through word of mouth, adverts among others who will bring potential stakeholders into the alliance. In this regard GHACCO is considering recommending membership-based commissions. This way, it has created social media platform on “WhatsApp” to sustain the interest of members by keeping them updated on current issues. The alliance is also making efforts at crossing the Greater Accra and Ashanti regional borders to network with other women’s groups across the country.

FUNDRAISING

Strategy to raise funds has been designed to address the specific needs of the sector. These includes market deployment policy for clean cookstoves and Fuels by which government procures, agreed quantities of clean biomass Cookstoves for vulnerable households  such as recipients of the LEAP grants.

Concrete steps that have been initiated comprise;  The facilitation of the formation of a committee to implement GHACCO’s fundraising strategies.
