International Women's Day

Taking the #PledgeForParity

The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations says giving women the same access as men to agricultural resources could increase production on women's farms in developing countries by 20 to 30 percent. This could raise total agricultural production in developing countries by 2.5 to 4 percent and alleviate the hunger of 100 to 150 million people.

We see every year how access to agricultural resources help women. Right now, a third of our program partners are women with entrepreneurial spirits who are farming to help their families survive while achieving their ambitions and becoming leaders in their communities to help “pay it forward.”
