Bernard Bempah

The best example of all is Bernard Bempah. Bernard trains farmers (mostly women) on Oyster mushroom farming in Ghana, West Africa. Instead of using coffee, he uses composted sawdust and has been able to alleviate scores of poor out of poverty. He also started BemCom Youth Enterprises/Association( to uplift people from poverty (400-600 farmers are given training in a year by BemCom).
Bernard says,"I am deeply grateful for the support for my trip. If we can get the laboratory equipment to make spawn, it will change the mushroom industry in Ghana."
Bernard Bempah has also been training farmers for 12 years in producing honey, rabbit, snail and grass cutter apart from mushrooms. Freedom from poverty:

Bernard Bempah, founder of Bemcom, stressed the importance of the program and the value the Williamses provided.

"We are trying to look at any means to eliminate poverty through mushrooms," Bempah said.
The couple grew attached to Bempah, 37, and two years ago flew him to the U.S. so he could see their farm and others around the state. He's been back several times since.
"Bernard is like a son to me," Sandra said.
When Bempah visited the Williams' home, he was amazed at the wild game they had running through their yard. Born and raised in Ghana, Bempah had spent the better part of the last decade trying to teach small farmers from Ghana how to raise enough food to provide for themselves and their families.
So when he saw the brown squirrel in the tree outside the Williams' house, he made sure not to let the opportunity go.

Mushrooms are high in protein and can offer the Ghanaian people a low-cost alternative protein source, according to Bernard Bempah, founder and director of BemCom, one of the leaders in training oyster-mushroom farmers from Ghana, Nigeria and other countries in West Africa.

The loss made it clear farmers needed to diversify their crops. Bempah had trained many of Ghana's mushroom farmers and determined that a second crop, shiitakes grown on logs, could provide a buffer against single-crop failure and increase the farmers' production and profits. BemCom trains farmers in alternative/non-traditional agricultural production: rabbits and other small animals, bees and honey, and snails in addition to their work with mushrooms.
The Williams formed the Mushrooms in Ghana Project to bring Bempah and BemCom Production Manager Godwin Baokye to the U.S. to learn shiitake farming.
