Challenge

Women in Mozambique can be powerful drivers of change for their families and their communities, yet they face many challenges,limited mobility, lack of education and financial literacy,trauma from conflict and natural disaster, and are confined in traditional gender roles that put them at the margins of local economies and society. Horticulture is the most promising value chain for family businesses as cycles are short, market returns are better and a great source of nutrition for the family.

Solution

This project will work with 500 women smallholder farmers and their families, in horticulture in central Mozambique. iDE uses an integrated approach to empowering women and their families, combining horticulture training, business and financial training, and training aimed at re-constructing gender roles while improving familial relationships. After training, donations will support direct investments in women-led farms with quality inputs,technology, improved nurseries and access to markets.

Long-Term Impact

Women who are aware, empowered and equal decision makers create lasting impact on their communities.They also emerge as leaders and become role models for other women farmers who can also grow their businesses. The skills learnt will enable 500 women to improve their livelihoods and those of their children through access to nutritious food, better housing and education for their children. iDE believes in transforming livelihoods and bringing a systemic change that lasts forever.
