Happy International Women's Day

08 Mar 2024

In commemoration of the International Women’s Day under the United Nation’s theme: “Invest in Women: Accelerate Progress,” we want to take a moment to celebrate the invaluable contributions of all women in the agricultural sector in Africa. At AFAP, we recognize the vital role that women play, particularly as hub and retail agro-dealers, in ensuring the availability of essential agricultural inputs such as fertilizers and improved seeds to smallholder farmers, many of whom are also women.

Your dedication and hard work are the driving force behind the transformation of Africa’s agricultural landscape. Through your tireless efforts, you not only empower smallholder farmers with the resources they need to improve their yields and livelihoods but also contribute significantly to food security, economic growth, and sustainable development across the continent.

On this special day, we want to express our deepest gratitude to each and every one of you for your unwavering commitment to African agriculture. Your resilience in the face of adversity, your determination to succeed, and your passion for making a difference inspire us all.

Happy International Women’s Day!
