Achievement brief

CAMFED | Sub-Saharan Africa: In 2013, the Campaign for Female Education (CAMFED), launched a breakthrough initiative to train young women from poor, marginalized farming communities across sub-Saharan Africa. Through this training, these young women become Agriculture Guides – champions of sustainable agriculture. These young women have improved the productivity, sustainability and profitability of their own smallholdings as well as encouraged wide adoption of practical, affordable and locally-relevant climate-smart techniques. As a result of this initiative, a movement of young women are now leading effective action on climate change through sustainable agriculture in rural Africa. More:
