In honour of the International Women’s Day and rural women farmers, AFAP Malawi hosted a field day to celebrate with over 250 women and their families, including spouses and children. The event was also attended by the Local Traditional Authority, the Ministry of Agric Extension and Standard Bank who have partnered with AFAP for inclusive finance access to smallholder farmers and community members. Celebrations included song and dance and centered on women empowerment and the need for men to support women in breaking barriers.
Gender equality today for a sustainable tomorrow is this year’s theme and our interaction with the farmers across the gender divide, all celebrating this day spoke truth to theme. #breakthebias2022
