Did you know that Ghana is growing a superfood? In August 2016, 2,000 women from 70 communities across the Northern Region planted 1.5 million orange-fleshed sweet potato seedlings provided to them by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). Known locally as “Alaafei Wuljo”, the orange-fleshed sweet potato is a tasty, easy-to- grow yet highly nutritious crop. Today in Gushegu, the first 2016 harvest of orange-fleshed sweet potatoes will take place, kicking off two months of harvests across more than 100 acres in 17 districts in the region.
