We Have Increased in Number, But Has Our Land Increased in size?

The Africa Faith & Justice Network (AFJN) team just concluded an unprecedented land grab prevention and awareness campaign in several villages and one very large high school in Nkwanta South District of Ghana’s Volta region.  Click here to learn what land grabbing is. During this time, we reached millions of people through radio shows on three local FM stations. The panel discussion for the shows was in a combination of four languages: Ewe, Ntrubo, Akan (Twi) and English. The shows were held in collaboration with the Ecumenical Association for Sustainable Agriculture and Rural Development (ECASARD). The relevance of our message is rooted in facts, stories of victims of land grabbing and our competent team of three traditional chiefs, one policy analyst and three passionate land activists. In Ghana people urged us to make our campaign national. Funding for this project was made possible by the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate in the U.S. and the Presbyterian Mission Agency.
