The Ethical Fashion Initiative - Ghana: Establishing sustainable export-market links and supply chain for ethical fashion and lifestyle
Description
Ethical Fashion Ghana will establish a sustainable export market based on a sustainable supply chain for ethical fashion and lifestyle products supplied by micro entrepreneurs. Using a business model with a market-based approach, the project will develop and link formal and informal MSME businesses with the international fashion industry value chains in a commercially viable way. A sustainable value chain between micro producers in Ghana and buyers in Europe will be established supported by ethical business practices and fair labour conditions. By providing jobs and increased incomes through exports, Ethical Fashion Ghana will also contribute to reducing poverty amongst small producers. The project will provide beneficiaries with capacity building and expertise ranging from direct product design support, technical assistance for informal enterprise producers, as well as training on market identification and access to new markets. This project is implemented as part of the new Poor Communities and Trade Programme which is focused on reducing poverty through the generation of trade opportunities for marginalized communities- and their micro producers – in the developing world.
