AFRICAN WOMEN GET A RAW DEAL

In many sub-Saharan African countries, women do up to 80% of the farm work

These women often own just 1% of land, and receive as little as 5% of farm inputs and other supports.

If women were given equal access to inputs, studies estimate that food production would increase by 20%

Benefits from farming that are received by African women are more likely to be invested in family health and education.

We will send copies of this petition to the decision-makers who allocate hundreds of millions of dollars for agricultural and rural development projects each year.

We will ask them to allocate a fair share of this funding to projects that support Africa's women farmers.

Together, we can make a difference.
