Overview of the project
The Nigerian Women Agro Allied Farmers Association (NIWAAFA) aims to train women to become responsible farmers and to make people and communities aware that respecting and adapting food production to ecosystems is essential for sufficient and nutritious crops. Thus, NIWAAFA promotes sustainable agriculture, without the use of microorganisms that cause pollution and degradation of soil and land.
These women, who are often responsible for more than half the farm’s agricultural work yet reap no financial or social benefits, thus have a means of gaining empowerment and visibility in society. By 2025, one million women and youth will be trained and empowered.

The organisation’s objective is to promote the empowerment of women farmers by training women to become leaders in agriculture and guarantors of national food security.
