Women make up 43% of the global agricultural labour force but less than 15% own land.
By closing the gender gap in the agrifood system, the number of food-insecure people could be reduced by 45 million.

How Empowering Women Farmers Makes a Difference

Meet Amina, a resilient mother in northern Ghana, proud to raise her family where her roots run deep.

Amina and her children

Amina and her children

Unfortunately, the community she loves is not immune to the effects of inflation and climate change. Farming equipment is increasingly unaffordable for farmers like Amina and rising temperatures, erratic rainfall, and extreme weather have led to soil infertility and weed infestations that devastate her crop yields. Despite these challenges, Amina never gave up.

Supported by generous donors with crucial farming inputs, like climate-resistant seeds and fertilizers, and climate-adaptive agricultural training, Amina was able to emerge as an agent of change.

“I have seen a massive improvement in my crops this year compared to the previous years. With the support I received, I was able to scale the yield from less than two bowls to five bowls.” - Amina

Amina's family has undergone a remarkable transformation thanks to her leadership and the support of donors. Now, she effortlessly grows her farming business, covers school fees, purchases new clothes for her family, and ensures her children are well-fed.

Hope begins with empowering women like Amina.

Women Training Women

When women are empowered through this training, they are not dependent on the men in their family. They earn enough to pay for their children's school fees, start businesses, and have financial stability.

Small-scale Irrigation

The project gave us the tank to be able to harvest the rain, they gave us the drip irrigation to be able to save more water to supply us with more water for irrigation, we no longer use as much water as when irrigating by flood.

Indigenous crop revitalization

Indigenous seeds are so important - they germinate well, increase yields, are drought resistant and do not require much care. This year I produce five bags of maize - this wouldn't be possible without Indigenous seeds.
