NOURDIGN

Atlanta, 12 March – We are bringing dignity to women and communities in Africa. IDA launch the NourDign brand.
Agriculture plays a key role in Africa’s development in terms of economic growth, enhanced living standards, poverty reduction and increased food security.
Women farmers are the pillars of African agriculture. According to the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO), the agricultural sector employs over two-thirds of all women in Africa who then produce nearly 90 percent of food on the continent. Women are responsible for growing, selling, buying and preparing food for their families yet remain marginalized in business relations and lack control over access to resources such as land, improved seeds and fertilizer, training and technology.
