General

The goal of this project is to give women more agency so that they can gain access to agricultural land and see their own initiatives for social and economic development bolstered by the community. The project will encourage both men and women to participate in atraining program designed to increase their knowledge and, in particular, to encourage men to alter their behavior and stereotypes in ways that will open up more opportunities for women to work the land. More than that, the program will provide men with a more nuanced understanding of women's perspectives, allowing them to move beyond seeing them as objects of amusement and instead include them in social and economic development decisions, particularly those pertaining to land access and the distribution of agricultural goods. Meetings for raising awareness, training, support, networking, and advocacy that actively involves those who will ultimately benefit from the project (the right holders and duty bearers) are the mainstays. The activities will be completed through the use of several methods, including the Empowerment Approach, the Rights Based Approach, the Facilitation Approach, and the Integrated Approach.
