The documentation team of ACDEP, the host NGO of Prolinnova-Ghana, has produced a video film on how a women’s group in Yendi in northern Ghana improved its artisanal soap by using local herbs and other materials to give the soap new colors and shapes. They did this to meet the changing demands of local customers and have thus gained higher incomes that allow the women to purchase foodstuffs. The women developed this innovation in a process of farmer-led joint experimentation, working together with rural advisory agents, as part of the Proli-FaNS (Promoting Local Innovation for Food & Nutrition Security) project supported by Misereor / Catholic Central Agency for Development Aid (KZE).
