Did You Know?
People often ask, why are we still talking about gender and women empowerment in 2021?
The reality is that although so much has been done over the years, there is still so much to do in the years to come.
Every little helps, grassroots communities like ours, help women to develop stronger local and international networks, and have on accessible pathways to advice and capacity development in key areas.
All contributing like to our shared goal of a gender balanced world.
Less than 20 % of the world's landholders are women. Women represent fewer than 5 percent of all agricultural landholders in North Africa and West Asia, while in sub-Saharan Africa they make up an average of 15 percent.
Women make up more than two-thirds of the world's 796 million illiterate people.
Women make up 39 percent of global employment but accounted for 54 percent of overall job losses as of May 2020. Globally, part of the reason is that women are disproportionately represented in industries that are expected to decline the most in 2020 due to COVID-19.
