Help rural women to grow and earn more and increase their status in the community
This three-year project will improve livelihood options for rural families by enhancing women's economic leadership and agricultural and livestock knowledge across 27 communities in the mid-and far- western regions of Nepal. Oxfam will support women's development as agricultural trainers and entrepreneurs to increase their yields and incomes. Alongside local partner organisations we will also facilitate women's greater involvement in local-level decision making.
With your support we aim to:
- Increase women farmers' production and earnings, through more effective farming methods, better irrigation and improved agricultural and veterinary support;
- Promote women's economic leadership through the development of farmers' co-operatives and providing business training;
- Support women to campaign for their right to livelihoods, health care, and government support.
Who will benefit
10,800 people will directly benefit from increasing their food production, improved incomes, knowledge and status. Indirectly, 40,000 women will benefit from the implementation of more female-friendly district policies.
