MADE internship programme 2020
In June and July 2020, the Market Development Programme for Northern Ghana (MADE) ran a successful, four-week internship programme for recent graduates of any of the agricultural colleges in Ghana. The programme recruited extension graduates to support the work of its partner firms located in Bono East, Northern, North East, Savannah, Upper East and Upper West Regions.
The internship programme gave 30 graduates (half of whom were women) the opportunity to gain work experience with a farm enterprise, such as a nucleus farmer, produce aggregator, input dealer or mechanisation service provider.
The interns increased the support that MADE provides to agribusinesses in response to the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, helping to ensure that the 2020 crop season continues, as far as possible, uninterrupted.
