We will engage women farmers and their families to implement agro-reforestation activities in their farm lots. Agro-reforestation will be the growing of trees and crops side by side in order to achieve multiple aims of increased income and food and enrichment of nature in order for nature to provide in turn multiple benefits.
Women are oftentimes overlooked in the promotion of the general welfare in the community. More so with women farmers when in fact they are major contributor to the economy of the household. With the term "housewife" means they stay home when in fact this is not the case. Women are active partners in developing their own communities and we shall engage them in promoting agro-reforestation.
We will organize, capacitate and catalyze women farmers so that they are active participants and actors in our agro-reforestation initiative. In so doing they are recognized as active participants in community building and will improve and enhance their families social and economic condition as well as the conditions in their farms.
Women are most often not recognized and not given attention in community building and this is the case in promoting the improvement of their farms and their communities. We will change this mind-set by directly engaging them so they are recognized as active actors in their own communities.
