Women Who Farm Africa

Women Who Farm Africa is a social enterprise and leadership development program for rural women farmers on the African continent, founded by Slyvia Tetteh, Sussana Teriza Phiri, and Ruramiso Mashumba. Readers interested in issues in agriculture and food systems, such as gender disparities, community organizing, and food insecurity, will be intrigued by its model of supporting and improving the lives of impoverished women farmers, which focuses on providing technology and training to increase productivity and independence and reduce the gender gap in farming. The organization serves women who would otherwise face obstacles to economic and food security that male farmers do not typically encounter and encourages women farmers to invest in their businesses to increase the quantity, quality, and diversity of their goods. To learn more about Women Who Farm Africa's services, which include professional development via formal and peer-to-peer training, facilitation in the application of modern agricultural technologies, and access to domestic and international markets, visitors can click "Services" in the menu at the top of the page. Readers may also want to check out the "Blog" (also in the menu), which features videos of farmers' stories, farming tips, and links to other resources and organizations that partner with farmers.
