This website is for the collection of data from Ghana graduates and other participants who have registered for participation in the Funding Ghana Graduates (FGG) program. It is comprehensive and collects a wide range of data that is being processed virtually in real time. Some key reports will be presented on this website in the future. This is an exciting challenge because we will all be able to watch as graduates join the FGG program and how they are performing. The core objective is to generate well-being indicators for each participant and each of the communities in which they live and serve.
- Business and Consumer Paper Products – these are incubator projects aimed at developing entrepreneurial skills of graduates and to provide cash flows for developing other initiative under the FGG program.
- Aquaponics – Initial Phase – Tilapia fingerling production. This project aims to discover and model an optimum strategy for distributed production of tilapia and other fish species in the future.
Objectives of Data Collection and Analysis
The FGG program directly addresses the first United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and the reports on this website will attempt to provide a micro analytic view of large numbers of graduate inspired initiatives. These initiatives will be closely monitored and their performance will contribute to a better understanding of what is sustainable and generalizable across a wide range of cultural, political, and environmental landscapes.
This is a work in progress and engages the latest in data analytics technology and techniques. This website will become a window into how small communities in Ghana are evolving socially, economically, and environmentally under the FGG program.
Data Processing Infrastructure
It is proposed to migrate all data collection and data processing functions to the cloud in the future.
The economic, environmental, and social development under the FGG program focuses on very small cells of households and associated businesses that align with the boundaries of the enumeration areas defined by the Ghana Statistical Service.
