Social and Economic impact

A part of the net profit is distributed back to the community in terms of structural and infrastructural investments for the community involved into the Breeding Hub. CFH can determine together with the community how the money is used and on what projects. These funds can be used to built a sanitation house or school, profiting generations to come. This is direct profit and involvement for the community.

Local communities supply the young workers needed for the Hub farm and Satellite farms.

Calculating the social impact is easy for us, if we just look at the situation at our farm. Due to the social structures we encountered, each worker has his wife and their children combined with siblings and parents, up to 10 people depend on each worker. 1 Hub + 30 Satellites = 353 employees = a difference for 3,530 Ghanaians on a structural basis

The Cluster Farming approach will be replicated throughout Ghana in a period of 5 years, partly financed out of the profits from the Hub farm and commercial investments. We will build 3 Hub farms with 300 Satellites, making a difference 10,590 Ghanaians on a structural basis within 5 years.

The biggest contribution we noticed so far is not directly the number of people we employ but the duration of the employment. By giving a solid and strong income during several years, the entire community starts to benefit from it. They are sustainable spending more, therefore redistributing their profit towards the entire community. Our workforce is also evenly distributed since we start by hiring male workers and at the start of the production / nursing we will add female workers to the workforce.
