Voiceover Across sub-Saharan Africa, young women from marginalized farming communities are trained to become champions of sustainable agriculture. The Campaign for Female Education’s project helps these young women improve the productivity, sustainability and profitability of farming in their communities.
Angeline Murimirwa, CAMFED Executive Director, Africa Climate-smart Agriculture Guide Program is about young women going back to their communities and harnessing what they’ve now learned, the modern knowledge about climate and what causes it, but also harnessing the indigenous knowledge and saying, “How do we help the resilience and the coping in our communities?” Particularly given that we work in rural communities where communities live off the land, where they rely on the land for income, for resources, for their food and everything. And this then impacts on whether a girl can go to school or not.
Leticia Chikumbirike, CAMFED Association Member It is very important to share what I have learned to other women, so that they can grow their own crops, to have food security and so they can have their own money so that they can send their children to school.
