 |  NCR Today

Here's a story that can scoot:

Catholic Relief Services, on Wednesday, presented four motorbikes to the Catholic Diocese in Wa, Ghana, for the monitoring of some of its pro-poor projects in the Upper West Region.

The motorbikes would be used to support the Diocese, to effectively carry out its monitoring role in the implementation of the Integrated Savings and Internal Lending Communities (SILC), as well as the Agriculture and Water and Sanitation I-SAW Step-up Projects, in four districts of the region.

Father Bennette Tang, Diocesan Development Coordinator, made this known during the presentation of the motorbikes in Wa.

He said the aim of CRS is to integrate Savings and Internal Lending into Agriculture and Water and Sanitation management as an activity among rural people, to enhance their livelihoods."

"Madam Lisa Washington-Sow, CRS Country Representative in Ghana, who graced the occasion, called on the Catholic Diocese, which is a beneficiary of the motorbikes, to use them prudently for the holistic development of the rural people.

She said CRS would continue to support the Diocese, to initiate more income generating ventures and capacity building of rural people to enhance their livelihoods."
