Many ideas for resilient communities were generated. Here are some of the Resilient Communities built during the workshop!
Many key challenges as well as opportunities were raised during the workshop. A full workshop report will be shared shortly. But all the more, the participants were certain that the potential for CREW to bring about a big difference in making Ghana and its community more resilient is immense.
We hope that we can share the comprehensive reports and presentation slides very soon!
