Rurality Project in south-west Ghana

Rurality is about creating resilience among oil palm smallholders in Ghana’s Western Region.

Rurality is a vehicle for brands like Nestlé to support their suppliers to face the need for change at smallholder level. The Benso Oil Palm Plantation (BOPP) is supplied by estate plantation and independent farmers who work with Rurality to improve the efficiency of their oil palm farm, but also to diversify their activities and increase their self-sufficiency.

Key activities

Individual on-farm coaching
Field officers Charles and Grace aim to help smallholders manage their plantations more efficiently. They go to each Rurality farmer’s plot to provide practical and technical training, such as fertilisation, weeding and pruning.

Connecting farmers
Three new farmers’ associations have come together since 2017 with the goal of strengthening farmer organisation, receiving access to training, providing collective transport, and creating better interaction with the mill.

Farm management and diversification activities
Rurality supports farmers to improve their knowledge in both the farming and financial realms. The team also encourages farmers to diversify their incomes by supporting new, income-generating activities through simple business plan trainings.
