Around the world, many women face poverty and discrimination simply because of their gender. But if women had the same access as men to land and resources, the number of hungry people worldwide could be reduced by over 100 million.
The Canadian Hunger Foundation knows that investing in women is not only the right thing to do, but it is also the most effective way to lift whole families out of poverty. That’s why, in Kenya, for example, we’re working with 5,000 women in 16 community groups who are now taking their future into their own hands, creating sustainable livelihoods through activities like horticulture production, basket-making, and dairy processing.
Together we can help more women to stand strong, proud, and empowered. We can help their voices be heard, get them the tools they need to lift themselves out of poverty, and ensure they have the hands-on training to create a sustainable source of food and income. We can inspire change.
