FarmSahel is a nonprofit organization dedicated to empowering smallholder women farmers of Burkina Faso through regenerative agriculture.
While they create a pathway out of poverty for smallholder women farmers, they help restore degraded land, improve and vitalize soil health, and equip farmers to face climate change. The increases agricultural yield and income by 40% or more per farmer helps women support their families and make their way out of poverty. It’s a startling pair of statistics that 90% of income earned by women is reinvested into families & communities. For instance, this allows them better nutrition and access to healthcare for their families. They earn a higher level of respect by moving to the middle-income class, improving their social standing, which empowers them to reinvest in the community. Women will afford education for all children (especially girls who are always the ones staying home when parents cannot afford to send all their children to school).
