Most farmers in Nigeria operate at the subsistence, smallholder level within an extensive agricultural system. Thus, the country’s food security and agricultural development lies largely in their hands. Particular striking, however, is the fact that women, more than their male counterparts, dominate agricultural activities, making up 60-80% of the labour force. Yet their contributions to agriculture and rural development are seldom acknowledged. We will give rural women farmers a voice and effectively champion their cause. We will improve women’s access to basic economic resources such as land, labour-saving and food-processing machines, credit and agricultural innovation.~
The core priorities of our agriculture interventions are to increase production to meet local demand, improve the quality of food products and to educate farmers about yield management and environmental conservation.
