About Project

Problem: What problem is this project trying to address?

We are genetically inclined to like sugar yet the damaging effects of added sugar are becoming increasingly evident. Further agriculture can form an important aspect in fighting poverty in the upper regions of Africa and encourage development.

Solution: What is the proposed solution? Please be specific!

Stevia the all natural and zero calorie sweetener can resolve part of the problem. By replacing calorie rich and artificial sweeteners with stevia we will provide part of the solution in fighting obesity and type II diabetes. By setting up a large scale stevia farm in Upper West Ghana, potentially creating a stevia valley, we can contribute to the overall development of the area as stevia is starting to take an ever increasing position in the sweetener market.
