ECOCRAFT WORKSHOP - EcoCraft - Workshop

The EcoCraft workshop was established in January 2002 and now boasts 24 skilled carvers and two designers.

EcoCraft is the first certified training centre in Ghana for woodcarving and lathe turning. Since June 2004 every year 20 Junior High graduates take part in the formalized apprenticeship program. With a high proportion of young women, EcoCraft also aims to help break down some traditional gender barriers.

After a three-year training period the young people have the oppotunity to continue working at EcoCraft or other wood processing companies, or to set up their own workshops for the local markets.

EcoCraft will also give a hand as main purchaser of the products, and as middlemen for contracts and marketing.
