This project aims to use food security and agriculture as a platform for women’s empowerment. The project works to advance the rights of women and girls by providing gender appropriate and climate-smart agricultural training, and helping women to increase and control their incomes. The project also addresses harmful norms that limit women’s participation in agriculture and works to reduce sexual and gender-based violence. Project activities include: (1) providing training to women and their communities on natural disaster planning and response, natural resource management, and conflict resolution; (2) providing training to women and their families on nutrition, including topics related to equitable food distribution and child-feeding practices; (3) distributing small livestock, poultry and other inputs to women so they can engage in income-generating activities; (4) providing training to women on leadership, functional numeracy, literacy, and management skills; and (5) facilitating discussions on the reduction of gender inequalities, and the prevention of sexual and gender-based violence.

Expected results 

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) improved participation of women and girls in managing challenges to food security; (2) improved use of female-friendly agricultural and business practices that promote income generation and management of natural resources; and (3) equal and safer environments for women’s leadership within their communities.
