Women in the program will not only earn an income that will benefit their families, they will also be contributing to stabilizing the current food crisis ensuring that communities take in higher levels of nutrition and health. By using the land, and all available resources, the women will learn valuable trade skills, which can then be passed on to other members of their community and carried on well past their graduation from the program.
CIFI will educate and train 3,000 women about land use, irrigation, crop types, and farming techniques as well as marketing of their products.
The program will increase food security and nutritional variety for the farming women and their communities that traditionally rely on animal protein and limited varieties of vegetables.
