For the purposes of transparency, the Ghana Social Opportunities Project (GSOP) is doing biometric registration of all of its beneficiaries.
GSOP Labor Intensive Public Works aims to improve the lives of rural folk by engaging community members in construction of access roads, dugouts, rehabilitation of infrastructure among others.
At the start of the nationwide registration of GSOP beneficiaries in the Bongo district, National Coordinator of GSOP, Robert Austin said the project will register all beneficiaries biometrically in the 60 districts of Ghana where GSOP operates.
District Chief Executive for Bongo, Alexis Adugdaa Ayamdor was happy that his district is benefiting from the climate change, road maintenance and the dugout rehabilitation under the GSOP. Mr. Ayamdor mentioned the Balungo-Samborogo road and Gurogo-Balungo road as some roads rehabilitated by GSOP. The Bongo DCE said the project is rehabilitating 2 dams in the district, adding that 7 communities in the district have adopted mango plantation under the GSOP climate change project.
GSOP will also commence a 3.5 kilometer Goo-Kadare road in the Bongo District on the 20th of October. The road is expected to be complete by January 2015.
A member of the Goo community, Aboba Abibu who spoke to A1 News was hopeful that the project will not only give employment to community members but will also relieve them of the suffering they go through plying the road.
