Government has received eighty-eight- point- six million dollars from the World Bank towards the implementation of Ghana Social Opportunities Project, G-SOP.

The overall goal of the project is to support Ghana’s Social Protection Strategy by reducing rural poverty in accordance with the Millennium Development Goals.

Deputy Upper West Regional Minister, Ceasar Kale, disclosed this at this year's “Mifele” festival of the chiefs and people of Lambussie in the Lambussie-Karni district of the Upper West Region.

He explained that under G-SOP,labour at the local level would be employed to build the capacities of beneficiary communities to put money into their pockets.

Mr. Kale said already, a three-unit classroom block with ancillary facilities has been constructed at Kanguol and the Sentu-Tabire road has been awarded on contract.

He said government through SADA will construct dams and dugouts to promote irrigation farming and animal husbandry,to curb the migration of the youth from the north to the south in search of menial jobs.

Mr. Kale appealed to the youth to take advantage of government's social interventions and go into all year round farming and animal husbandry,to enable them to earn income to support themselves and their families.
