Support women farmers in rural Sudan where government farm programs traditionally exclude women.
This project focuses on helping women, giving them training and seeds for their seed-oil crops. The women yearn to lift their families out of poverty by becoming equal contributors to their households.
MADRE, in partnership with Zenab for Women in Development, has launched the Women Farmers Unite program which teaches farming to women by giving them tools, resources and equipment to begin growing and selling crops. Participants use their profits to invest in their communities and send their children to school.
