Abom Konkomba is a small and remote village in the Kintampo South District of the Brong-Ahafo Region.Ghana, where farming is vital for the communities. In fact, access to the community was challenging for teachers to come to teach, for women to go to the hospital, for framers to sell their produce after harvest. Access to the agricultural inputs (seeds, fertilizers) as well. “The village was breathless,” a community member said.
The poor infrastructure in Abom Konkomba was the main impediment to its growth. In fact, there was no road to access the communities and this had been a major headache to the District Assembly. Farmers shunned the community because of the poor road and lack of storage infrastructure. The intervention by NRGP was therefore timely. The intervention included the construction of a 8.7km feeder road which links Abom to Apesika, passing through a number of communities including Abom Konkomba.
