I wanted to share a special update from the field. Lydia Sasu, Executive Director of Development Action Association (our local partner in Ghana), has called on the government to include women farmers on issues and policies relating to climate change. Attached is the original news article of Lydia attending a conference in Durban, South Africa and a picture of DAA members at their quarterly meeting. This is just another example of how you are amplifying the voices of grassroots women leaders around the world. 

Thanks for your support!
