Video – 2011 – New Field Foundation’s funding is contributing to significant change. As rural organizations connect and gain momentum, their leaders are influencing changes in attitudes and policies. Their members are removing barriers and improving the quality of life as they overcome poverty, violence and injustice.
Due to New Field Foundation funding, and the efforts of rural women’s organizations, more than 350,000 people in rural communities now have nutritious food and an increase in income, knowledge, and confidence.
This 2011 short documentary features women in West Africa voicing the difficulties they face in achieving food security and how organizing into groups has enabled them to overcome these challenges. A glimpse into the rural women’s movement, its voice and its cause.
