Do you partner with women and/or indigenous peoples?

March 22, 2022

About two-thirds of our participants are women. This is reflective of the disproportionate amount of agricultural work women do around the world. In sub-Saharan Africa and the Caribbean, they produce up to 80 percent of basic foodstuffs. In Asia, they provide from 50 to 90 percent of the labour for rice cultivation. (FAO) As more and more men migrate from rural areas in search of work, women bear a heavier burden. In some regions of Africa, 60 percent of households are now headed by women. // Many of our partners are from indigenous communities that are often excluded from society or marginalized due to their race. In Thailand we only partner with “hilltribes” - highly marginalized ethnic minorities that often have tenuous rights to the land. In Mexico, we work with many indigenous communities of varying ethnolinguistic backgrounds.
