More about Richard
|About me / us:||Vivus is a not-for-profit social enterprise that supports women smallholder farmers in Ghana by empowering them with cargo bicycles and carts instead of them using the traditional and extenuating method of head porterage women in rural households carry over 90 tons or more of firewood, water and farm produce within a distance of 1 km during the course of a year). We then help market their fruits and vegetables through groups of urban women vendors we organize in Accra. In one sentence, we are improving the value chain of the local "fruits and vegetables" sector in Ghana while making good impact.
The previous social activism of its founder has earned him to become a Pearson Fellow for Social Innovation, a World Economic Forum Global Changemaker Fellow, an International Telecommunications Union Young Digital Innovator, an Echoing Green Finalist and a TechnoServe 100 BPC Finalist|
