For many years, farmers, especially small-scale holders have suffered silently under unfavourable national agricultural policies that threaten their livelihoods and dignity. The situation became worst after the Ghana structural adjustment and economic recovery programme. This is one of the factors that informed the formation of the Peasant Farmers Association of Ghana in 2005 as a group of small scale farmers that have come together to take their destiny into their own hands; empower themselves to advocate for change in the policies and practices that perpetuate their poverty and hinder their progress towards achieving food and income security. Today, Peasant Farmers Association of Ghana consists of individual farmers and farmer groups, as well as, value chain actors numbering over 1,000,055 and 1,962 farmers Based Organisations (FBOs). Membership is spread across all the ten regions of Ghana.
The Association was registered with the Registrar General Department in August 2008 as a not for profit organization and with the Department of Social Welfare as a Non-Governmental Organisation, (NGO).
Our mission is to develop beneficial programs favorable for increasing agricultural production, processing and, marketing through building and strengthening the capacities of farmers in policy advocacy and entrepreneurial skills and improve access to local, national and international markets and resources.
What we want to achieve
Our vision is to provide a life of dignity for the peasant farmers.
