Mothers Club of Nima can be likened to Wangari Maathai and the Green Belt movement in Kenya .The club is a local NGO in Nima made up of 50 women who are involved in women empowerment in sanitation, reproductive rights and urban gardening.The organization is mobilizing people in Nima to participate in the Green Nima movement , a project sponsored by the German Development Cooperation which encourages people to grow and eat their own food. The Green Nima Movement encourages people with less space to grow vegetables and fruits in sacs.
These women have trained about 300 people to making their own gardens in sacs.They visit households in Nima and teach them about how to nurse seedlings,irrigation and the use of indigenous crops. Through the Green Movement about 500 fruit and vegetable gardens have been established in housholds and schools in Nima , which promotes food security and sustainable development.
Mothers club of Nima is sending signals to Ghanaians that if gardens can be created in Nima, which is highly populated with minimal open spaces then growing your own food is possible anywhere. The group collaborated with a local artist , Alewa to compose a grooving song entitled Green Movement which is on you tube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vusiBqLHwqc.
