Creative Capacity Building and Fabrication: Cost Effective Tool for Corn Shelling and Corn Cob Charring for Clean Energy

February 23 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm GMT

This initiative aims to empower maize farmers in Ghana by teaching them how to transform waste maize cobs into useful products. Farmers will learn how to make briquettes from the cobs that can be used for clean cooking fuel. They will also discover how to utilize simple tools for corn shelling. This provides additional income sources while being environmentally friendly. It promotes a circular economy and reduces reliance on firewood and human efforts in shelling. The workshops will be hands-on and interactive to ensure the farmers gain practical skills to apply sustainable practices in their community.
