In collaboration with Trax Norway (Bergen, Norway) and Engineers without Boarders (EwB, Norway), Trax Ghana play host to two students from Norway for their respective fieldwork.
Helene Bergo Nygårdsvik is a Master student at the University of Agder (UiA) who is writing a thesis on optimizing productivity and value chains for greenhouses. A component of her research involves field work and she used the Trax Ghana-EwB, Norway partnership greenhouse located in Kabusgo, Bongo district (UER) as a specific example.
Erik Kim Storrønning is a Master student at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU). His thesis is on methods for improving drinking water quality and accessibility in rural communities which he carried out in rural farming communities where Trax Ghana operates.
The theses of the students were carried under the auspices of the EwB (Norway) ‘Meaningful Masters’ (Master med Mening—https://iug.no/vaart-arbeid/master-med-mening) program and fully funded and supported by EwB (Norway). Trax Ghana supported the field works in granting access to the greenhouse, facilitating surveys and interviews, and other necessary courtesies.
