    • To value family agricultural production
  • 4. OBJECTIVES OF THE WOMEN’S CAMPAIGN
    • The overall goal of this campaign is to equip rural women with the skills and tools to ensure that their voices are heard and concerns are addressed in order to effectively participate alongside Africa’s large farmer federations in the greater ‘We are the Solution’ pan-African campaign.
  • 5. THE GENERAL WOMEN’S CAMPAIGN OBJECTIVES
    • Objective 1: To build the organizational and individual capacities of selected rural women’s associations and their leaders.
