Provide tools to rural women startup farmers in SA

by Born to Succeed Vetted since 2016

Summary

Born to Succeed is applying 3Es Educate, Empower and Enable approach to young women development, We have learnt that a robust training programme is not enough to help women with little resources to pioneer but rather enablement lies at the cornerstone of success. Our young women now need to be supported with tangible assets to enable them to participate in the economy. We are looking for your support though donating towards our Crowd Funding to raise funds to buy farming tools for young women.

Challenge

Gender equality has always been a core global issue, the goal of sustainable development goals (SDG) is gender equality which is to empower all women and girls. Gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls is a crucial contribution to economic development of the world. The participation of women and girls in education, training in the field of science and technology, and for the promotion of women's equal access to full employment and decent work is pertinent to driving the 16 SDGs

Solution

Through our International Day of Women and Girls in Science 11 February 2017 we educated 54 young unemployed women about small holder farming agronomy. From this group of participants we then identified young women who have had a deep interest in agriculture and in many cases have begun farming at home. We will be working with 6 groups of 5 women per cooperative in total 30 women. The women will also be trained on the business of farming and be incubated by LeGae La Banareng Farms, Modimolle.

Long-Term Impact

This project will enable women farm for themselves and start to generate an income for themselves, once the ladies have perfected substance farming, there is an opportunity to grow their yield so they may begin to sell their crop to neighbours or markets. Under the incubation of LeGae La Banareng Farms, we envision the cooperatives as a collective supply commercial food producers.
