This Mother’s Day, support a female farmer
Written by Plant With Purpose on May 3, 2014 in General, News & Events
How great are moms? Plant With Purpose’s presence in over 300 villages has provided countless encounters with selfless mothers across borders and across cultures. In addition to caring for their children, these women run households, churches, banking programs, and farms, forming the backbone of village life. Doesn’t that sound like someone you know?
Show your mom a little love this year by giving a little love away! Put to practice the generosity your mom modeled for you by empowering a female farmer in her name.
In developing countries around the world, women feed their children and care for the household through farming, yet they receive only five percent of the agricultural training and resources that male farmers enjoy. Many of these women are single mothers or widows. Supporting female farmers through tools and training is vital to fighting rural poverty.
Your gift will provide a hard-working female farmer with access to the sustainable agriculture training and savings-led microfinance she needs to support her family. What could make mom more proud?
