The Peasant Farmers Association of Ghana, a farmer based Civil Society Organisation, will hold its 2019 Annual General Meeting (AGM) on Wednesday, November 27, 2019 at Fijai in the Western Region of Ghana.
The meeting will be preceded by two-day training of farmer leaders in Budget Analysis and Tracking, and Advocacy.
The agenda for the meeting is as follows:
Ø To effect constitutional review – Woman Vice President Reservation
Ø To form women group under new Forest & Farm Facility (FFF) project
Ø To review and approve auditor's report and consolidated financial statements of the organization for the year ended December 31, 2018
Ø To present findings of research on Planting for Food & Jobs (PFJ)
The success of the organization has partly been largely due to its governance and democratically elected leadership. Over 120 farmer leaders from 70 Districts will be representing their organizations and will participate.
Farmers of record at the close of business on Monday, November 25, 2019 are entitled to notice of and to vote at the Meeting or any adjournments or postponements thereof.
The organization has communicated conditions necessary for participation of this year’s meeting to its members.
PFAG was formed in 2005 with a mission to advocate for pro poor agricultural and trade policies that would lift the small holder farmer out of poverty. Since then the organization has grown in strides and bounds and now boasts of a membership of 1,527 registered member FBOs and 39,156 individual registered small-scale farmers in over 70 Districts of the country and playing a critical role in the country’s agricultural development.
Headquartered in Accra, PFAG has embarked on advocacy initiatives through all its networks to provide life of dignity to the peasant farmer in Ghana.
