In partnership with Mastercard Foundation, IDH is leading a three-year market-led grains value chain development program in Ghana (Grains for Growth), that aims to contribute to the development of the grains sector, support the inclusion of smallholder farmers, and create jobs with a central focus on women and youth empowerment. The Grains for Growth program was launched in April 2022 and will be implemented until March 2025.
Through a market-driven approach, IDH will work closely with three premium off-takers, 12 SMEs, and support the inclusion of at least 20,000 smallholder farmers in the maize, rice, millet, sorghum and fonio supply chains in Northern Ghana. Through strengthening these supply chains, IDH aims to create new employment opportunities (with a core focus on women and youth inclusion), and improve the commercial prospects and livelihoods of smallholder farmers (SHFs).
A central component of the Grains for Growth program is to support the SME and SHFs included in the program to access digital services that can strengthen their supply chain engagements and commercial operations.
Based on Request for Proposals (“RFP”) below, IDH is looking to partner with an agricultural digital platform provider in Ghana to develop and secure digital services that meet the needs of the SMEs and SHFs included in the Grains for Growth program.
The deadline for the submission of final proposals is the 24th of June 2022 (17:00 GMT). Please submit proposals to Robert Asugre (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Please detail any questions and indicate your intention to submit a proposal by the 13th of June 2022 (17:00 GMT) to Robert Asugre.
