The need for an oyster crusher machine. Fund the crusher and you’re supporting over 300 vulnerable women engaged in oyster picking along the coast of Ga-south District in the Greater Accra Region, Ghana.Tsokome/Bortianor is a fishing community along the coast and there’s also oyster management activities currently ongoing in the community.The Oyster shell is of great value, but it is treated as nuisance waste by the oyster pickers for over 30years, based on research finding at a Participatory Rural Appraisal (PRA) conducted by Development Action Association (DAA) with the Densu Oyster Pickers Association (DOPA) in the Tsokome/Bortianor community and its’ environs. It has become necessary that effort and measures are put in to add value to the Oyster shells by acquiring an oyster crusher and other materials and labour to be able to support some management measures being implemented by DOPA and women oyster pickers who can grind their shells and package as animal feed for sale in order to raise income to support their families.
