A little history about the organisation
Rural Women Network started its activities in 2010 and was officially registered in 2011. Our goal is to give a platform which will amplify and give visibility to Grassroot women who include; rural women smallholder agriculture producers, Indigenous women, Widows, Elderly and Community Health Volunteers.
We endeavour to increase productivity, enhance livelihoods, promote climate smart agriculture and mitigate food , nutrition and economic
security and resilience under the realities of climate change and give care to the vulnerable within our communities.
The network was also formed to strengthen the participation of grassroots women smallholder farmers in local, national and global debates on food and agriculture and to better understand global policy frameworks which impact on them. We realize most times rural grassroot women are left behind in this aspect
and we strive to leave no woman behind. Rural women are powerful partners in
implementing these global policy frameworks. We need to unleash their full
potential which will enable them to participate effectively in sustainable
development by positioning themselves in decision making.
It is not enough to sit at the decision-making table but also to participate and engage. This will translate in reduction of poverty, hunger and malnutrition and halting environmental degradation as is defined in the Agenda 2030 -Sustainable Developmental Goals- Goal 1-No Poverty, Goal 2 Zero hunger, Goal 5 Gender equality, Goal 10 Reduced inequalities Goal,13, Climate Action and Goal 15-
Life on land. Most of these goals are also pentagon goals and drive the agenda.
