Elvis Morris Donkoh is from the Asomdwe community in the Abura Asebu Kwamankese District in the Central Region of Ghana.

See this link to read more about Elvis himself.

He seeks to demonstrate the potential for poverty reduction, food security, and health improvement through the introduction of sustainable non-wood resources farming (SNRF). This startup focuses on introducing the rearing of grass-cutters (large rodents) and land snails to rural people caught between government restrictions on cutting down forests for agriculture and lack of viable employment options. 

THIS PROJECT PROPOSAL was awarded spring 2016.
