In the world’s poorest places

In the world’s poorest places, it’s usually women who feed and cook for their families. More than half the time, they also grow the food.
Investment in sustainable agriculture, and the female farmers who practice it, can also help fill a gaping hole in the world's food supply, with some projecting that the world must grow 50% more food over the next 20 years to keep more people from joining the ranks of the billion who go hungry today.
A small investment in improved farming techniques, or even better seeds, could pay big dividends, creating a surplus to sell in the local market or income to send a daughter to school for the first time.
Given the tools, the world’s women won’t have to wonder where their next meal is coming from or rely on one-time handouts from relief agencies or governments. They will create their own opportunities
Why women represent the key to breaking the cycle of hunger and poverty around the world.
