“Women produce up to 80% of food in the developing world”

And yet, “they often aren’t able to grow enough to feed themselves and their families.”

According to ONE:

Concern Worldwide works daily with women farmers like Agatha through our ‘Women for Development’ program. We help provide them with tools and a little money to invest in seed—and so far the women farmers have seen lots of success. They’ve not only been able to grow enough to feed their families, but they’ve also been able to use the income from their extra food to send their children to school and keep their families healthy.
