In developing countries around the world, women are responsible for caring for their families through farming. Many of these women are single mothers or widows. Yet female farmers generally lack access to the same training and resources that male farmers get. Empowering women through training and resources is vital to fighting rural poverty. Your gift will provide a hard-working female farmer with access to the sustainable agriculture training and savings-led microfinance she needs to better her family’s income and nutrition. Research shows that every $10 added to a woman’s income provides the same benefit to children’s health and nutrition as an increase of $110 to a man’s income, so your gift is a great investment in improving the well-being of a family in need.
