Lambussie DCE sensitize four communities in Billaw on implementation of production inclusion CLASS

Mr George Gerald Naluri, the Lambussie District Chief Executive on the 4th of June 2022 held an engagement with four communities in the Billaw Electoral Area to orientate and sensitize them on the implementation of the production inclusion Complementary Livelihood and Asset Support Scheme (CLASS) in the area.
The meeting was also to guide selected beneficiaries of the scheme on making the right choices of engaging in income generating activities to improve on their livelihood.
The Production Inclusion Complementary Livelihood and Asset Support Scheme (CLASS) is an initiative under the Productive Safety Net Project (GPSNP) aimed at supporting the rural poor to engage in income generating activities that will boost their economic power , create employment and increase cash earnings opportunities through investment.
The four communities which included Billaw, Kadiligor, Yaatenyir and Pousiyir are among other communities identified in the district under the production inclusion CLASS Batch 2 communities of the Ghana Productive Safety Net Project (GPSNP).
Mr Naluri, addressing selected beneficiaries during the meeting, said the purpose of the meeting was to affirm government’s commitment in giving opportunities to all by bridging the inequality gap and assisting the extremely poor households to establish and engage in enterprise/livelihood activities that will guarantee them sustainable incomes and also support the Ghana Governments Social Protection Strategy (GPSNP).
He emphasised that Production Inclusion(PI) programme is to create employment for the poorest of the rural poor by providing employment and cash earnings opportunities for them through investment as well as give equal opportunity for gender, youth and people with disability in the district.
The DCE said the beneficiaries would be supported with some finance (grants) and support items including Ruminants, Guniea fowls, a set of groundnut processing and shea-butter extraction equipment.
