Women engaged in the collection of shea nuts in Gizaa Gundaa in the Kumbungu District of the Northern Region have been provided with a processing centre and a warehouse to enable them to increase their production and incomes. The United States Ambassador to Ghana, Ms Stephanie S. Sullivan, who inaugurated the facility on Thursday 14th March 2018, said it was one of the 34 processing centres and warehouses project the USAID and GSA had launched with cooperatives across the country over the past three years. The new facility was constructed by the Presbyterian Agricultural Services, in partnership with the government, Global Shea Alliance (GSA), Perfectly Posh and Savanna Fruits Company with support from the United States government through United States Agency for International Development (USAID). Ms Sullivan added that upon completion of the entire project, it is expected to benefit about 30,000 women involved in the collection and processing of the shea in beneficiary communities.
