    Summary

    Maxwell Odonkor is a final year
    student of Pentecost University
    College, Accra, Ghana, studying
    Business Administration (Logistics and
    Supply Chain Management option who is
    eager in entering into farming despite
    the fact that younger generations are
    not interested in farming. Maxwell had
    the idea of starting a poultry farm
    project. He believes in the power of
    entrepreneurship and an
    entrepreneurial spirit- to tackle
    global challenges, transform
    communities, create jobs, spur
    economic growth and close the
    opportunity gab that confronts too
    many people in Africa and around the
    world.

    The Challenge

    Getting employment in Ghana has now
    become tough; and every year thousands
    of people graduate from tertiary
    institutions to walk on the street
    claiming there are no jobs. My
    research has confirmed that there is a
    sharp demand for fresh eggs. This
    offers the opportunity of sustainable
    income as a scale of eggs provides
    steady cash flow.

    Solution

    The project when successfully
    implemented will provide a study
    income from sixth month as the layers
    will provide daily eggs. This project
    will reduce the rate of unemployment
    in my community by using the income
    generated to support other passionate
    entrepreneurs who are eager to enter
    into the agriculture sector.

    Long Term Impact

    Agriculture plays a critical role in
    reducing poverty and achieving
    economic growth. This project will
    provide employment and hope for the
    youth. Their confidence level will
    increase and become good asset to the
    community. They will inspire by
    philanthropy and show humanity towards
    the community whilst reducing poverty
    in Africa and beyond.

    Location: Begoro in the Eastern Region
    of Ghana.
