Success Stories from Zenab!

Fatima Ahmed, director of MADRE’s sister organization Zenab for Women in Development, recently shared some success stories from the Women Farmers Union. Together with Zenab, MADRE supports over 3,000 women farmers, giving them the tools, resources and technical assistance they need to sustain their families for the long haul. Keep reading to learn how this program is helping transform women’s lives:

  • Howafram owns a small farm where she produces food for her family. When her crops were infested by weeds, Zenab was there with the tools to deal with the problem and save her crops. MADRE and Zenab’s support helped Howafram successfully prepare for the rest of the season’s harvest.
  • Since Zeina’s participation in the Women Farmers Union, she’s been able to grow the food her family needs to survive. Income generated from surplus crops allowed Zeina to send her daughter to school. Her daughter is now attending a nearby university. She is the first person in Zeina’s family to go to college.
  • Halimah, a Women Farmers Union participant from the Wadaif community, recently invested the money she earned from her harvest to open a pre-school. Now, her pre-school serves up to sixty children in her community.

Your support truly strengthens our sisters in Sudan, their families, and their communities. Thank you!
