Women in Agriculture – An End To Hunger

According to the World Bank, women make up 80 percent of Kenya’s farmers, however access to financial support to develop their small scale shambas is severely lacking due to the fact that few women own property they can use as collateral for loans. Combine this with the impacts of prolonged drought and devastating floods in recent times, men abandon farms to work in cities, leaving women and children behind to care for the land.

Manawomen are needing our help to ensure their shambas provide food for their families and others.

Help us to buy seeds, chickens, and goats.

“Our mouths are full. We have so much joy. We have been harvesting now for three months, and none of the women have needed to buy a single cabbage or any other food from the markets” (Peninah).
