Esnath Divasoni: Climate-Smart Agripreneur and CAMFED Association Member - Video Transcript

Esnath’s family relied on agriculture to earn a living, but couldn't make ends meet. CAMFED stepped in to support her to go to school, join the CAMFED Association leadership network, and win a @mastercardfoundation scholarship to university, where she studies Agricultural Science and Natural Resources Management. Esnath will bring her knowledge back to rural Zimbabwe to teach other women climate-smart farming techniques, and make sure families earn enough money to support their children to go to school.
